Happy Pink Wednesday! I've accomplished a lot of "firsts" this month and I'm happy to share one of them with you today. Ombre mani's were all over the blogosphere last year; I haven't attempted one until now. I found it harder than it looks. I'm a little OCD when it comes to certain things. For this mani, I had to make sure all the finishes of the polish were consistent: I chose a crème finish.
I will mention that IRL, the ring finger and middle finger were more different than what they appear in my photo's. D'oh.
The polishes used for this mani are:
Index: Color Club Poptastic
Middle: Color Club Yum Gum
Ring: Sally Hansen Pink Blink
Pinky: China Glaze Snow
My thumb is also China Glaze Snow
China Glaze Snowglobe (1 coat) layered over Pink Blink
Application for all these polishes was fairly decent: the only one I had issues with was Color Club Yum Gum, I found it a bit thick. A drop or two of polish thinner would help. Snowglobe is GORGEOUS. *stares*
I was pretty happy with how this turned out. Finding a darker creme finish pink proved impossible for me so I just used Snow and made two nails white. I only swatched this but I will definitely try this out as a full mani sometime soon, with different colours of course, gotta change things up! ;)
Have you tried an ombre mani? What colour scheme did you choose?
