ASBMF Challenge #6- Ombre

On to the sixth challenge! I can't believe I'm moving along so quickly now!
So an ombre design means staying with one color and simply doing a gradient with it. It can be done one of two ways. You can do a gradient on each nail with different sponging techniques, or you can do what I did. I chose to go from light to dark on one hand. Take a look:

I chose the color blue with which to do my ombre. I just love blue. I really thought I had more blue options to choose from, but what you see are what worked best together. My pointer and middle finger look like the same color in this picture, but in real life, they look nothing alike. I had to use my flash and it skewed some of the colors, but I think you get the idea. Also, fun fact of the day, the color on my index finger (Zoya Breezi) is my new favorite color. I had gotten it back in December when Zoya was doing all of their amazing flash promotions and never used it! It's amazing. If you don't have it and you love blues/teals- get it!

Here is another shot of the ombre:

Lastly, here is what I used to accomplish this fun look:
(From left to right- Orly Bonder (as base), Seche Vite (topcoat), NYX Girls Blue Ink (it's a jelly!), Zoya Breezi, Zoya Yummy, Orly Snowcone, and Nubar Blue Hydrangea

Hope you enjoyed,
Thanks for reading!

  1. Lovely! I wish I had enough shades of a colour to do a proper ombre
