This was my first time trying ombré nails, and I really like it! I've been sick for two days now (though I still have to go to dance - can't miss any rehearsals with the show coming up next Saturday!) and even though it was late last night, I had already been wearing my last manicure for three days and it was getting pretty chipped. I wanted something fast and easy that was still more interesting than a plain mani, so I finally decided to try this.
From thumb to pinky I used Sally Hansen Black Out, Orly Shockwave, Grey franken (2 parts Zoya Dove, 1 part Orly Shockwave), Zoya Dove, and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.
I like the look of the colours transitioning from one to the next across the fingers! I was a little nervous about having to mix a colour for the middle finger, but I think it came out just right. I actually ended up liking the colour so much that I might make myself a mini bottle of it!
I also went a little crazy with the nail file last night, they feel like such nubs after how long they've been the past few weeks! Oops!
I'm working on collecting some stuff for a giveaway soon, because lots of exciting events have all seemed to converge! I just passed 300 blog followers, I'm getting close to 5000 Instagram followers (@emmaclarem), my next post will be number 100, and it's my 17th birthday next Friday, November 16th! :)
