Superhero Challenge - DC Hero

Hello everyone :)
Today I have another Superhero challenge post for you all! Today's post is based on a DC Comics Hero!! I got very excited about this post and have had it planned for a while! Keeping with the theme of less well known characters I chose this guy...
The color Kid! You can read more about him here
I chose the Color Kid as I really liked what he looks like he doesn't look like a conventional Hero and I love his costume! 
So here's what I came up with...
I took my inspiration for my nails from Color Kids costume once again. I really loved the rainbow panel so decided to do a gradient to portray that. Then I wanted the gradient to stand out so used black on the other nails to frame it like his costume does.
I made the gradient over bare nails and I think it stands out nicely, although it may have been brighter with a white base, I just didn't want really thick nails after using all this polish :p I used the following polishes in order from the cuticle line to the tip; China Glaze Poinsettia, Color Club Wham! Pow!, Color Club Almost Famous, Color Club Twiggie and Jesses Girl Girls Night Out. I sponged two coats of each colour on to the nail and then sealed with topcoat. The black I used was Revlon Lunar.
I'm so pleased with how this turned out. I thought the gradient was going to be a disaster :P I had great fun looking through all the Hero's for this challenge, but Color Kid was so fun I knew I had to show him to you all, I hope you like him!

Have you ever done a rainbow gradient? What colours did you use? let me know in the comments :)
Thanks for reading :)
