I'm Cuti-CLUE-les and I'll be standing in for Kelly today! I couldn't for the life of me think of a design for today's post. Finally I settled on a blue ombre look and I think it came out fairly decent. I'm not one for sponging (it never turns out well) so I kept things pretty simple and used striping tape instead.
I started off with 3 coats of Catrice Sold out forever (the pale pastel blue version, not the original Chanel dupe) Once that had dried I sectioned off the nail into thirds using striping tape. I added on 2 coats of Barry M Blueberry ice cream around my cuticle, Barry m Cyan blue in the middle and Sinful Colours Endless Blue on the tips. I topped it all off with a glossy topcoat and that was it!
The only really time consuming part of this design is waiting for the base to dry before adding on the striping tape. I'd say stick with a 2 coat polish so you don't have to wait ages for the next step. If the base isn't dry before you add on the striping tape is tend to peel off with the tape and it ruins the look of the design.
I hope ye enjoyed this little post and thanks for reading!
What an awesome design! I love the ombre effect it has! So cool. Thanks again Roisin for helping me out!
