It is becoming increasingly obvious that I really like cream polishes in neutral/nude/beige colors. I’m ok with that. It made this ombre mani really easy. :)
- Essie – Sand Tropez
- Essie – Chinchilly
- China Glaze – Below Deck
- Milani – Art of Silver striper
- Essie – Miss Fancy Pants
- 3mm Square Nail Studs
- base & top coat
I painted each nail like so:
I also added a square metal stud to my thumb for a bit more…pizzaz? I used a little dab of top coat to affix the stud before coating the whole nail with topcoat to finish.
This midweek mani looks an awful lot like an ombre mani I shared a little over a year ago, except that I achieved the ombre effect for that mani by adding varying amounts of white polish to the same base color. This time, I didn’t necessarily follow an ombre pattern in going from left to right/darkest to lightest and instead I used different polishes but made sure to keep the colors all in the same color-family (so much easier). I really didn’t pay too much mind to achieving any kind of gradient effect.
Thanks for reading!
