Pink Ombre Manicure

I tried something new today, yaay! A few days ago I saw this super cute pink ombre manicure at Esmerald Sparkle and I fell in love with it - how couldn't if I adore pink! I had in plan to test my new Konad plate, but I had to try it on my own.

I watched a couple of videos on youtube and at Seventeen Magazin and I give it a try.

You can start with one color and add it white or black nail polish to lighten or to darken the shade, or you can pick 2 polishes and mixed them together. I picked the last version.

Nail Polishes I used was a Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Bubblegum Pink (a light bubble gum shimmer pink) and Conffeti - Vava Voom (a berry creme pink).

I mixed them on a piece of paper with a toothpick. First I add one drop of darker one in 3 drops of light one. I totally forgot that I need a clean brush so I had to do first step twice. ihikhik And so on! On thumb I add Bubblegum pink and on pinkie Vava Voom.

This is how it looks like.senyumkenyit Btw.. weather is still so bad, so it's really hard to take good pictures!

My ring and middle finger look almost the same, I should mix darker shade for my ring finger.fikir

You should mix enough nail polish to add 2 coats on 2 nails, don't forget!

So, have you ever tried it? Do you like it? I'm sure I'll try it again but I think I'll choose one darker color and I'll lighten it with white. senyum

Happy day!
