I do gradient nails all the time. So how come I haven't done an ombré until now?
It's a bit streaky, because I did it by layering more and more coats of Butter London - Stroppy, a sheer purple jelly with shimmer, over the light purple creme of China Glaze - Light As Air.
It was hard to get even coverage, especially on the one-coat and two-coat nails, but I really like how it turned out! Very subtle, but still noticeable, and it was one of those manis that feels "chic" on your nails. Do you know what I mean? Of course you do. You're reading my blog, after all, you must be nuts like me.
I definitely wanna play more with ombrés now! But I would probably have a hard time trying to pick out polishes that work together instead of doing the layering thing. Hmm... We'll see!
Tonight I will be seeing my favorite hockey team, The Chicago Blackhawks! They will be beating the crap out of Dan's favorite team, the St. Louis Blues. Be sure to watch the game and try to spot us in the crowd! HA!
