I’ve been wanting to do an ombre mani for a while now but every time I dig through my stash I can’t find 5 shades of the same color that I think go well enough together. Finally I decided on 5 purples that I think compliment each other pretty well. I had to use one of my striping lacquers in order to have enough! First time I’ve ever used a striping brush to paint my entire nail!
The colors aren’t quite showing up right in the pictures. The ring finger is the one that I used a striping lacquer on and it is much brighter than it appears in the pictures. And the middle finger is much less blue than it appears in these photos. When I first started seeing this mani popping up everywhere I wasn’t so sure about it but now that I see it on my nails I really like it!
The other day I bought a package of nail art striping lacquers. The one in the package that I was really drawn to was a purple and blue glitter. I couldn’t wait to try it and I thought this was the perfect opportunity so I added some stripes.
