Every week, Polish-aholics Annonymous on FB runs a challenge. I've been participating in the challenges, but I haven't done a corresponding blog post about any of them...until now. Today's challenge was ombre/gradient nails. In case you don't know, ombre means having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark. Don't worry...I didn't know the exact meaning, either. Yay! We learned something today. You can go back to bed now. :)
On to the pics, shall we?
I initially tried a white to black gradient, but it didn't turn out so well. I had to hand mix two shades and it just didn't work. So, I went back to my Helmer and dug around a bit - and viola! Here's my purple gradient nails!
I didn't get a good bottle/thumb pic, so check out this swatch HERE for a good representation of the color.
So...there ya go! What color(s) would you have used if you had done an ombre mani?
