Nude & Blue Ombre Nails!

Hey guys! I'm so excited! Turns out I've been featured on The Crumpet's blog! I was one of her options for her "Blogger of The Month!" I definitely gained a few more followers because of that, so thank you!!

I have a simple but kind of funky mani for you today. I actually really love it, even though it had a few flaws, I had to re-do some a few times because I was apparently extra-klutzy that day. Also the striping tape a used left a strange yellowy color only on my ring finger nail...figures.

I also have a fun mani I did on my cousin's tiny nub nails to match the dress she was wearing to a graduation party. I did it very quick and loose and I absolutely love it.

First are my nude nails with blue ombre diagonal tips





I used:
  • OPI: My Vampire Is Buff
  • Essie: Mint Candy Apple
  • Essie: Where's My Chauffeur?

I also did my cousin's nails to match this dress:



I used:
  • OPI: My Vampire Is Buff
  • OPI: Can't Find My Czechbook
  • OPI: Dim Sum Plum
  • Essie: Tart Deco
  • Essie: Bond With Whomever

    1. Thanks!! I knowww, I had it off for a while and got so much spam, it was driving me crazy. I'll try it again though!

  4. I love the design! Don't have many mint shades, as I really don't like them on their own (on my own nails at least), but I may try to recreate the idea with some other colours! Plus, my vampire is buff has to be one of my favourite polishes ever. Definitely need to buy a backup soon!

    1. Yes! I almost did this with purples, I'd love to see it! My Vampire Is Buff is amazing, I'm thinking of buying a backup as well...

  5. The second manicure is just like an ikat! It's a pretty hard technique if you ask me. Nice job!
