Ombre Mani

Hi everyone!!  I hope the week is going well for all of you so far.  Friday's almost here ;0).

Today I wanted to share with you an Ombre mani that I tried out recently.  An Ombre mani is a manicure where the colors fade across the five nails from dark to light.  I was inspired to do this by four very talented people I follow on twitter: Tera (http://nailsinnippon.blogspot.com/), Carolina (http://www.coloresdecarol.com/), Marta (http://www.chitchatnails.com/), and Marketta  (http://pinkpolishaddict.blogspot.com/).  They were a part of a nail challenge that included this mani.  I decided to try it, not only because I loved their results, but also because I thought it was something that I could actually accomplish.  As I've mentioned before, I'm not very good with nail art.

For this mani, I used Sinful Colors' Savage and Sinful Colors Snow Me White, starting with only Savage on the pinky and adding Snow Me White more and more as I continued with the other nails. 


I used Sally Hansen Double Duty for a base coat, two coats of polish, Kleancolor Sparkle Emerald, and Seche Vite fast dry top coat.  Of course, I added glitter to this mani ;0).
Here are the pics of the mani:

I wish the difference wasn't as subtle between the ring and middle finger, but it works ;0)

I really like the way this turned out.  It took some time to get the colors just right, but I was very happy with the result.

Here's another Ombre mani I liked:
