Ombre Nails

Posted by Erin on 11/11/11. Filed under: , , ,

I've seen a ton of ombre manicures out there, but for some reason or another I never thought to try it out for myself. But today while I was trying to figure out what to do with my nails, I decided to give it a go. I'm glad I did! 

I used Wet N Wild's Through The Grapevine for this. I started out by pouring a bit of it onto a piece of aluminum foil, and added a drop of white to it after every nail I painted.

I liked this so much that I tried my hand at it once more just to see what it'd look like with a different color.

This is Yoga-ta Get This Blue from OPI. I used the same technique as I did with Through The Grapevine. I love this, but it's a bit of a fail for 2 reasons. One being that I used a shimmery base color and the shimmer was diminished with every drop of white creme that I added. In hindsight I should have used a shimmery white. The other issue is the fact that by the time I got to my pinky nails the polish had begun to thicken and it applied kind of shitty because of that. I still love it though. I'll just have to tweek the technique for next time.
