Summer ombre skittles

Hi, the camera is still broke but hopefully I'm getting a quote of how much it will be to fix it *fingers crossed* it's not too much. I realised I have some pictures that I never put up, I did these nails a couple of weeks ago. 


I had this vision for them but they didn't quite go according to plan as I rushed it so the lines are messy :( but here it is 
No closeup for these ;) they look better from a distance



I used 15 polishes for this! 
Like my carpet? LOL 
1-9 = top row, 10-15 = bottom row
1. Models Own - Lilac Dream 2. Rimmel Pro - Ultra Violet
3. Sinful Colors - Amethyst 
4. Kiko - 345 Jade Green
5. Color Club
6. Kiko - 346 Olive Drab
7. Barry M - Blueberry Ice cream 
8. Barry M
9. Topshop - Airplane
10. Color Club
11. Rimmel - Style Hunter 
12. Barry M 
13. Revlon - Sunshine Sparkle
14. Sinful Colors - Unicorn
15. Kiko - 355 Canary Yellow


All the palest colours required 2 - 3 coats, the middle colours were 1 thick coat and the darkest all took 1 coat. To do this I painted about a third of my nail in the palest colour, it doesn't matter if you do more as the other colour will cover it, once that had dried I did the middle and then the tips which were the easiest. I tried when painting to make sure that the sections were relatively straight and even so striping the black was easier. As you can see I was a bit off with the black lines. If you were to recreate this it would make a lot more sense to use the taping method but I like to freehand as I feel that's the only way I'll become the best!! LOL 


I called these ombre skittles as I feel they are more ombre than gradient hahaha. 


Hopefulllllly my camera will be fixed real quick as I am expecting some awesome nail mail that I wish to share with you :) 


Seeyou soon!

Criminal Nails said...

It's soo cute and fun :) Seems like a lot of work though... and with tape it would have been even more, I guess, for you need your polish to be really dry. Eish... I wish I had time for such a beautiful mani :)
