My attempt for Ombre nail polish- Attempt 1, what I learned from my mistake

Advertisements

It was a total failure. So before you read further I thought to warn you in advance.

Well I started growing my nails back around 6 months back. They are kind of mid length. Ombre nails I wanted to try from quite sometime, so last week I thought to give it a try. It was a total failure, and I had to remove it to again try next day. So before I remove I clicked a pic to post a blog series on it. Like my attempts to learn ombre nails. What I thought and what mistake I did etc etc

There are so many things lets discuss one by one

  • Color- making a choice in color was the first thing. I am all into bright neons green and lemon green is my favourite. So I chose this two.
  • I am all neon these days hence these two color from neon formulation
  • I wanted a matte finish for it
  • So I collected all supplies like green nail polish, lemon green nail polish, latex peel off, base coat, white color nail polish, matte top coat, top coat, q tips, nail polish remover, cotton balls, sponge

Now when everything was at one place I started trying the ombre nail. I will mention step by step and my mistakes too.

  • Firstly I applied the latex peel off coat around my nails. It was first time I was applying the latex coat. I didn’t knew much except what I saw n number of times on many videos on YouTube and other places. It was not at all neat. I applied in on corner of nails too
  • I applied base coat
  • After that I applied white color nail polish. Idea was on white color base colors will pop, I anyway use white nail polish under any neon polish or pastel polish. But what mistake I did was I didn’t let it dry completely. It was dry but not complete dry. Remember for every coat the previous coat has to be completely DRY especially in ombre else you will not get result at all while using sponge.
  • I applied the both nail polish on sponge and pressed on my nails. Well as the white base was not completely dry, the nail polish application was not successful infact the sponge took some white nail polish also.
  • I repeated the process 3-4 times but in vain. As I was making mistake of not letting it dry.
  • So at last I gave up and applied both nail polish directly and clicked pic
  • I watched some videos on it and all set to give my second attempt.

I know it’s very bad but I should share my failures too with you guys. The second attempt will be up on the blog very soon.

Born Pretty Fluorescence Neon Nail Polish Banana Milkshake F01

Price- Rs 350/- from http://www.ilovemypolish.com

I really like Born pretty nail polishes their formula and price is so reasonable. I so wish they come to India too so that we can have choices from their full range.

ALSO please note I use Neon Nail polish on white color nail polish background. That way nail polish look more bright and neonish. I do the same for pastel and other bright light shade too. In my reviews whenever I have done the same I have specifically mentioned it.

In swatches below the nail polish is applied on a white background nail Polish.

Now coming to my views-

  • Formula is neither too thick nor thin. Many times I see neon nail polishes are thin
  • Staying power is good stay for almost 4-5 days.
  • Neon nail polish without any white base will look sheer you need to apply atleast 3 coats. But if you are using white base 2 coat will give you awesome result.
  • Its a very bright neonish color which make your hand look brighten too.
  • Though the name say banana milkshake I thought it to be more on yellow side of green yellow color. But it’s more on green side of yellow green color. Like lemon.

Born Pretty Ultrafine Tiny Blue Holo Nail Polish 051

Price- Rs 300/- from http://www.ilovemypolish.com

So finally I tried a Holo nail polish. It was in my wishlist from long time and in the Holi sale of http://www.ilovemypolish.com I purchased this and many more. Expect many nail polishes review in coming days. Though due to lockdown in India i got my parcel 2 weeks back only. But the wait was worth. I am in love with all the shades. Today I am going to share swatch and quick review of Tiny blue holo nail polish.

  • So as the name suggest its holo nail polish and has got microfine particle to give holo effect
  • Though its kind of opaque in 1 coat only, but for proper look I will recommend to go for 2 coats
  • Drying time is standard not too quick not too late
  • staying power is good, stayed on my nails for 3-4 days straight. I was so bore that I even tried nail art on it. I have shared a quick one here.
  • Its blue in color but not like regular blue, its so different dirty slaty grey based blue. If only I am describing it right.
  • This color will look good on every skin tone. Infact I do feel that this can be used as formal wear shade too.

Now here are the piccies

Quick and Easy Nail Art-5

Studs/rhinestones/crystal/ stones etc can really give a makeover to any nails. Just simple or complicated.

To my Indian readers you can even use those shiny small bindis or crystal bindis.

How I do

  • applied base coat
  • one coat of nail polish

  • let it dry completely

  • second coat

  • when it’s semi dry applied the stone

  • let it dry

  • sealed with top coat

Stayed on my nails for around 3 days

Do give it a try

Enjoy the piccies
