Midweek Manicure // Halfsies

I found a bunch of super bright neon polishes the other day and wanted to try some out! Here’s the first go-around.

Half and Half Neon Manicure

After a base coat I painted half of my nail with China Glaze White on White so that the neon would POP! After it dried I painted two coats of Funky Fingers polish in the color Pop Art. Then, I painted a line of gold Stripe Rite across the line between the pink part of my nail and the unpainted part. Voila!

Midweek Manicure – Ombre Two Ways

My friend Leah is getting married in two weeks (!!!) and she has asked me to paint her nails for the special occasion. I painted her nails a few weeks ago, and this time we will be creating an ombre effect. In preparation for the event I tried out two different ways of creating an ombre effect on your nails:

Ombre Shades Manicure

Ombre Shades Manicure2

For this style, I mixed China Glaze Foie Gras with varying amounts of China Glaze White on White so that the color got lighter and lighter as I painted each finger.

Ombre Gradient Manicure

Gold Ombre Manicure

For this I first painted a base of China Glaze White on White. Once that dried I painted a strip of Zoya Jinx at the nail bed, then Orly Luxe in the middle and a stripe of the White on White again at the tip of the nail, then I blended them with a cosmetic sponge until I achieved the desired effect.

A while back I posted my first attempt at Ombre, which I think I had more success with:

Loving Ombre right now! Can’t wait to share with you how Leah’s nails turn out!

Happy Wednesday!
