Twinsie Tuesday - Ombre Manicure

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

For Twinsie Tuesday, I had to create an ombre mani!  I love ombres, they are a simple way to create nail art, for those of you like me who struggle in that area.  I've done a couple of ombre manis before which you can see here and here.  I don't use five different polishes.  I use one polish and add more and more white to make the colors fade across the nails.

For this mani, I decided to use Barry M Indigo.  I'm a bit annoyed that the colors didn't photography accurately.  Indigo is way more purple.  I should have expected it though because I had the same problem when I swatched it the first time.  You're still able to see the color fade on the nails though, so I decided to stick with it.

Here are the pics.  I used no top coat for this manicure.

I wish there was more of a difference between my ring and middle fingers.  There was one in person, but it was hard to capture on camera.  Still loved this mani though.

Have you ever tried an ombre mani?  What do you think of this look?

Don't forget to check out my twinsies and see their ombre manis!  I'm looking forward to seeing what they came up with.

  19. This came out great! I'm pretty scared of mixing polish because I never know if I can get it right. I did plan an ombre mani with 5 different blues and I think I'm gonna do it soon. You inspired me! Oh and I think you are very good at nail art!
