DIY: Painted Brooch

I pinned this DIY from Emily of Cupcakes & Cashmere, a while ago and was waiting for a perfect brooch to paint. Then I realized that I already had one! 

So, I took three shades of nail polish (red, orange, and pink) to create an ombre effect from darkest on the outside, to lightest on the inside. And, voila! It was admittedly a bit hard to stay in between the lines, especially after two coats. What do you think? Maybe you'll see it in action sometime soon...like in my next post.
