Ombré nails- sunset boulevard

If you have seen my posting on Facebook, you would know that I am crazy about ombré nails.

Basically you use shades of nail polish of similar family colour and sponge them on your nails.

1) apply them in strips on the dpi for (tip: sponge is 50%wet- not dripping)
2) sponge once, re-apply the colours and sponge again
3) I repeat this thrice in order to have intensity and opaqueness.
4) apply topcoat, I use Seche Vite!

Base coat- Chinaglaze
3 colours- Essie Cute as a Button, Mavala Waikiki orange, Mavala Vegas Pink
Top coat- Seche Vite

Cupcakes- yummy...

Desserts... Glorious sweets...

I decided to do a manicure that my son will approve of. Mini cupcakes with sprinkles. Top that off with a red cherry!

I did a few variations because I was having 2 minds out it.

Looking at the pastels, you realize I used darker colours, which is a pity... Pastels will be likely a better choice! If pastels are not within your reach, just mix white! Easy!

I had a bit of problem with the white, it was dry, but after smoothing out with topcoat Seche Vite, nice!!
