Happy Friday! Today is so special, because as you may have heard, the date is 11/11/11. There will never be a palindrome date like this again until…oh…11 days later. #Fetch
On to today’s fun nail look! You’ve heard of ombre hair color, the trendy look in which hair color is applied in such a way that the darker roots blend into a lightened mid-shaft and end. Ombre translates to “gradation” in French, and can be seen all over the runways, in both the clothes and the hair.
And now…on nails! Here’s what I did to create this fresh look.
Step 1: Choose a starting color. This time I decided to go with a skanky purple polish. You’ll also need a white and black polish for your tint and shade.
Step 2: Use some kind of makeshift item as a palette (I used a shave ice or snow cone cup) to do your polish mixing. Add in drops of the polish and mix the colors to your liking.
Step 4: Carefully, before the paint dries on your ghetto palette, apply your mixed color to nails, saving one nail for the original polish color. I painted the original color (we’ll call it Purple Skank) on my index finger.
What a fun, original look for your nails! A little stressful to recreate at times, but hey, that’s the life of an artist, right?
