More Simples Catch up ~ Ombre

Hello Dahlings!
1st ~ Sorry about not posting yesterday!
I've been traveling da last 2 weeks & got home yesterday
from Salt Lake City & da Stampin' Up! annual convention. 
I was too pooped to even contemplate doing my nails.
I will have this week's Freaking Color Combo up for you on Wednesday. 
(I've worn da SAME mani for da last 2 WEEKS!
Fatigue is da only thing that can squash my craving
for something else on mah nails!!!)
2nd ~ Here I was thinking I was pretty much on top of scheduling manis...
then I realized that I hadn't done today's post ahead of time
so I wouldn't have to think today.
Oh well, at least I had all da prep work done for today's post. LOL
 Week 3 ~ Ombre
There was some debate as to what an ombre is:
a light to dark of da same color over 5 nails
light to dark of da same color on one nail
Da consensus was that it's a light to dark of 1 color over 5 nails.
To do it on 1 nail is a gradient.
 Da final line up ~ Orly Harmonious Mess (pinky),
L'Oreal Royalty Reinvented (ring),
Wet N' Wild On A Trip (middle),
Sation Super Nail-tural Powers (index),
China Glaze Queen B (thumb)
plus L.A. Colors Blue Paradise as a topper.
All of this was finished with a coat of Seche Vite.
Originally I used L.A. Colors Illusion on my ring finger,
but it was a dup for On A Trip.
They didn't look all that close in da bottle!
>^. .^<
You left me home? Really?

Egad! I forgot to add da link to da
Nail Polish Bloggers Connection GIVEAWAY!
Where was my brain?
Oh yeah, still sleeping off all da traveling.
My Bad!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. ooo I love ombres, but never seem to have the right colours. I really need to go to the la color store in town

    1. The easiest way to ombre is to pick a color & then on plastic add white & black to create the 5 tints/shades needed. I did it the hard way, as usual. LOL
