Week 23: Ombre

Ombre

Ombre nails have been such a big deal recently and I'm so sad I'm late to the party! These were quite fun and easy to do and visually interesting. It's fun to try and pick colors to use to create the ombre effect or to mix them yourself!

Here we have Week 23 of the 52 Week Challenge:

Week 23: Ombre
This one is a little more color accurate although it's warmed up to get the colors to show purple and not blue.

Week 23: Ombre

I used Julep Anne (middle finger), Sally Hansen White On (pinky), and Petites Night (thumb), and mixed the colors for the other two fingers.

Dupe?

Is it just me or does Julep Anne + Petites Night look a little like Chanel Paradoxical minus the shimmer? I fiddled with it a bit and got a few that are really pretty, but I can't really tell if it's close or not to the real thing... Makes me wanna franken!

  2. Cool! My favourite colour is purple, so I just had to check this out! The best way to get those "in the middle colours" is to mix your light and dark with your colour :) Great job :D

  3. Ombres were more fun to do than I initially realized! My boyfriend's sister didn't get it though lol, "You painted them all different colours, so?"
