Up until this manicure I wasn’t total sold on the gradient, or ombre manicure. I did a post awhile back on how to do a DIY ombre manicure and while I liked the result I wasn’t itching to do it again. Finally I decided to give it another try and I’m so glad I did!
For this manicure I used Ulta Snow White as a base and used just one color (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Caribbean Coral) to create the color fade. Below the jump there are pictures after I did this step and I loved the way it turned out. But me being me I figured, hey, why not add some polka dots to the mix.
Using a DIY dotting tool I added white polka dots to all the nails except my ring finger where I instead added polka dots using Caribbean Coral.
I really loved the way this manicure turned out. The pink fading into the white with the polka dots was a really cool effect and super simple to do. I wore the crap out of this manicure! I even tweeted a picture of it. Finally I had to take it off and that made me very sad. I will definitely be doing similar nail art projects in the future.
I’d love to know what you think about this manicure! Below the jump there are, as I said, pictures of my nails with just the ombre effect as well as more picture of the finished product.
