St. Patrick`s Day Mani!

5 years ago

Did you wear green for St. Patrick`s Day? I did...on my nails =D I had a hard time trying to figure out what color green I wanted to wear, so then I decided to just do ombre nails. This is my first attempt at ombre nails and I`m quite pleased with the outcome. The transition from light to dark needs to be improved but I received a lot of compliments about it.

The polishes I used are all of creme finish. If you are going to do ombre nails I think it`s best to stick to one finish. I personally think sticking to one finish helps the transition and not one nail stick out from the other.

I used three different polishes...From Left to Right:
<strong>China Glaze "Re-Fresh Mint"</strong>: Light pastel green
<strong>Sinful Colors "Olympus"</strong>: Sea foam green; green grape
<strong>Sinful Colors "Envy"</strong>: Jade green
>> As well as Sally Hansen`s Hard as Nail Base Coat and INM Out the Door Top Coat

On my nails:
<em>Thumb</em>: 2 Coats CG Re-Fresh Mint
<em>Pointer</em>: 2 Coats of SC Olympus
<em>Middle</em>: 2 Coats of a Mixture of SC Olympus (3 drops) and Envy (2 drops)
<em>Ring</em>: 2 Coats of a Mixture of SC Olympus (2 drops) and Envy (3 drops) ~ I should have mixed in one more drop
<em>Pinky</em>: 2 Coats of SC Envy

The ombre trend was really big last spring. From what I see this spring nail trend is a lot of half moon and cloud manis. I personally like the ombre mani a lot more and will definitely try it again, maybe an orange ombre.
