Topped with Copper Shimmer from CND Effects
The other day, a friend asked me if I tried ombre nails. I didn't, but it was a nail idea that had been lingering in my head! To make sure I chose the right colors, I had to whip out a piece of paper and swab each nail lacquer on it. My goal was to make my nails look like a natural transition from one color to the next. I hit a couple bumps while doing this.
The I Believe in You from SpaRitual wasn't as bright as I hoped it would be and Poppy from American Apparel (the middle color) didn't have its own shade. It blended with my base color (I Believe in You) and formed a color that was between orange and pink. As soon as I placed Sooki from Zoya on the tips of my nails, I noticed that the color change wasn't gradual. To fix this, I slabbed on a layer of Copper Shimmer from CND Effects. Thus, the end result above.
