Oh Mon Dieu 2 - Ombre

Hello lovelies!

The OMD2 challenge is back again and I have a quick post for you guys today since it's late and I need some sleep. 

Onto the nails!

But I must say today's nail art is awesome, I love it so much!

Here's what I used:

I've never actually done ombre nail art before, but luckily I had a bunch of polishes that worked together.

These nails were inspired by this pattern by Serena Olivieri. Each nail got 3 coats of My Vampire Is Buff and some time to dry. I then used a large dotting tool to add the dots moving from the lightest polish on my index finger to the darkest color on my pinky. The little dashes were added in with black acrylic paint and a detail brush.

I think I'm going to have to do ombre nails again sometime soon because I really like the effect of the darkening colors. I'm really happy with how these nails turned out (:

Thanks for reading guys!

  1. Awesome ombre nails! I like that you made the design ombre and not just the nail polish base color.
