Ombre mani

Morning guys!! Now as some of you may have seen on TV, or fashion magazines, Ombre hair is a pretty big trend now, and I've seen Ombre nails done quit a bit on Makeupalley.com, so I went ahead and tried one as well. I chose to do a Black to White ombre. Ombre, is just going from the lightest of a color to the darkest.

Here are the colors I chose:

Thumb - OPI Alpine Snow Matte w/ SV on top, sorry, I completely forgot to take a pic of it :( I FAIL
Pointer - Dr. REMEDY Heather Grey
Middle - Pure Ice Kiss Me Here
Ring - Franken of Kiss Me Here & Sinful Black on Black.
Pinky - Sinful Black on Black




So what do you guys think? Have you done an Ombre mani? I was actually really loving this mani!!

  2. Sooo beautiful! I really said "ooooh" aloud xDD, so I HAD to comment.
    Would you try this one in some other colours?
    At least I am alone so nobody heard me talking alone ^_^UU

  3. Ahhhh, I LOVE this! I don't think I have two grays similar enough to do this, though. I probably have enough blues though!

    I'm not a big fan of ombre hair, tbh. Sure, Drew Barrymore can pull it off, but I'm not sure many other people can. If I saw a chick in my town with hair like that, I'd just think she needed to fix her dye job, LOL.

  18. This is so pretty! I always thought I didn't have enough colours to do it in, but I like that you layered one over the black to make it darker! I will definitely have to think of that!

    ReplyDelete

  23. Hi Ericka! I really love this gradient mani! I always wondered how the word "franken" got it's meaning?! Do you know?! lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like this trend cuz you can showcase multiple polishes lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. I really like this one! I think it would look cool with Konad on top. The dot pattern in silver would look awesome.

  28. I love it! Yet another thing I need to try. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh I definitely want to try this! I think I'm short of one shade to complete the ombre look though. But I saw that your ring finger is a franken. I'm not sure if you've already posted a tutorial on this but can you teach us how you franken your nail polishes? :) Love this look!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is too cute. I love the idea. Now I won't feel so guilty about buying similar shades of blue :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've done this with purple except I mixed a really dark purple with white polish to get the in between colors. It looks great in grey!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I really like this look. I like Ombres. I like them better than skittle nails, which I like also. I'm one color short of green to try this.

    ReplyDelete
  38. love it! I'm gonna try it with pinks and grays! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Very cool!! I like this a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love this mani! I will definitely have to try to do one.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thanks you guys!!! I will def be sure to try this with different colors!!

    Amanda, The term 'Franken' comes from Frankenstein. Since you're taking different colors to make a new one :)

    Annette, all I did for this was, grab a plastic bag, and drop a few drops of black on it, then a few of the grey, and just mix enough on the bag, to do 2 nails.

  42. great color choices and awesome job on making a good ombre!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love it!! I so wanna try this now with blues

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi, Erika! I have all of the colors, minus your franken. Do you think Sally Hansen's "Grey Area" would work on the ring finger? Or, I've also got Zoya's "Kelly". Or do you think these are too purple?
    I'm on a kickball league, and our first game is tomorrow. Our team color is charcoal, so I'm planning on doing this mani tomorrow!!!! Thanks for the great posts!

  46. I adore everything about this! Grey is my favourite colour (I know, I know, how boring of me!) so this is just perfect for me.

    Katie, I think they might be slightly too purple. I have Grey Area, and almost used it, but decided not to.
