Ombre nails made easy (but messy). In order from cuticle to tip... OPI DS Refelction, Essie Exotic Liras, OPI DS Sensation, OPI Strawberry Margarita, and Essi Luxe Effects Shine of the Times. They were painted onto the make up sponge, and then 'stamped' onto the prepped nail (ridge filler as a base coat). I repeated this for each nail.
I then used q-tips and a thin angled paint brush to clean up the polish from my fingers themselves (you WILL get a LOT of polish on your fingers doing it this way). It's a little time consuming, but the end result is pretty!
Afterwards I brushed on a very thin coat of OPI DS Sensation since it is very sheer and a coat of the Essie Luxe effects. A clear coat was added to protect all that hard work.
You can do this with any color combo, but I was feeling in a very Kaylee Pink mood today. I call these the Layer Cake nails ;-)

What an interesting technique and some very subtle nails.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
