I'm sharing my tutorial for ombre nails over on Amy's summer blog party today! Her blog party is going on all week and so far, the posts have been great! My pal, erika shared the yummiest recipe for mini key lime cakes yesterday that I'm going to have to try out soon. Erika is also doing something fun this week! She's celebrating pink week on her blog pinksuedeshoe. There's even a pink giveaway.
Special thanks to my friend (and fellow nail polish addict) Tisha for being my hand model for this post. It's really difficult to take photos with wet nails, so she saved me!
I've done this manicure a couple of times and thought it was time to share my knowledge with the masses so try it out and let me know what you think! I would love to see what color you try it with.
For those of you that really want the specifics of the supplies I used in the post. I'll share them here.
Nail Color - Ulta Creme Salon Formula Nail Laquer in Eye Popping Poppy
White Nail Polish - Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On
I say to use nail polish remover for cleaning your brush in the post, but to be truthful that only works a little bit. If you're going to be using this technique a lot and want a flawless brush cleaner get thee to Sally Beauty Supply and pick up some nail brush cleaner. It's my new favorite thing.
On a completely random side note: You all know my new last name is Beach, right? Whenever Sheldon's family all gets together, one of the siblings inevitably yells out "It's a party Beaches!" So now every time someone talks about a party I want to yell out "It's a party Beaches!" No one else gets the joke so I can't, but I ALWAYS want to haha.
Happiness is post is coming up later this afternoon!
