Lazy Days of Summer Challenge - Ombre


For this challenge, I worked hard to make a blue > green gradient, hunting down the right polishes without mixing one color with black or white (That's too boring/easy). 

Then somebody on the Summer Challenge FB group reminded me that ombre is usually strictly one color, not a shift from one color to another. So after doing that hard work and picking out 5 colors to gradient, I couldn't just discard the research.

I did a proper pink ombre on my left hand, and I had a blue > green ombre on the right. Then I put China Glaze, Fairy Dust, over the whole thing. I loved it so so so very much!

Without further ado, here are the two pictures I captured, one of each hand. I loved the look. It was cool, one side was very feminine and the other was a touch more edgy.

Left hand. I sponged gradients every other nail
from 1 color to the next. 3 colors used total.

This is the right hand. Ignore yellow hands in
favor of color accuracy on nails, sowwy.


  1. I love both hands!!! Lovely :)

  2. Both hands are so pretty I like the right hand. I love blue nail polish right now.

    1. Aw thank you! I love blues more myself as well! I shy away from reds and pinks usually....this ombre was different for me!
