Butterflies Ombré with Vapid Lacquer & Model City Polishes

It happened again. I had an idea but once I executed it it didn't come out as I had planned. But it still turned out pretty good.

The colors I'm using today are 
Himalayan Poppy by Model City Polishes,a bright sky blue crelly with blue flakies and splash of holographic pigment.  
Doheny by Vapid Lacquer, a Yellow jelly polish shimmering with a linear holographic rainbows.
I started off with 2 coats of Himalayan Poppy on my outside nails & 2 coats of Doheny on my inside nails followed by 1 coat of topcoat. Once dry I applied a little bit of Himalayan Poppy on a sponge & applied to the nails that had Doney.
Next I applied several Butterfly decals from Toadarrific Vinyls & Vinyl It Up! on each nail then applied 1 more coat of topcoat.

I was hoping it would look like the sky.
My first attempt at a macro! Not bad right? There is definitely room for improvement:

I'm loving Doheny in this picture. 
My original idea was add the blue on top of yellow to make it look like the sun & the sky. Granted it didn't turn out the way I planned but I think it turned out pretty cute.
