I was super excited to try out the ombre effect from PINK's Covergirl campaign ads in magazines right now. One of my favorite parts of reading magazines is checking out all of the AWESOME ads in-between reading all of the stories. The PINK ad caught my eye right away, especially her AMAZING ombre nails. I took me awhile to be able to collect all the colors, but now that I finally got my hands on all of them, I attempted the ombre look for myself. I am super pleased with the results, and I will show you guys how I completed the look :)
All of the colors come from the Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss Collection.
* The colors to create this effect are Black Diamond, Midnight Magic, and Perfect Penny
I also tried out a new product that I am hoping will redefine the time it takes me to compelte a manicure. I picked up the OPI RapiDry Top Coat nail polish formula from Ulta the other night, hoping that it would significantly reduce the drying time on my nails (I have an extreme lack of patience in that area lol). I think that it works pretty well, and aside from the imperfections I caused myself from a lack of patience, I think this formula worked quite well! It was a little steep in price though (I believe normally $12.99 or so for a top coat)... But I didn't have to use much, so hopefully this lasts me for awhile :)
Step 1: Apply a base coat all over the nails for the polish to have a foundation to build off of. I prefer to use my OPI nail base coat polish.
Step 2: Apply "black diamond" all over the nails as the bottom most layer of the ombre effect. Let it dry for a couple minutes before you apply the next coat.
Step 3: Apply the "perfect penny" polish to the tips. Doesn't have to be exact at all. Remember that the ombre effect is looks like a gradient, where the colors gradually change to another color. Again let this color dry for a couple minutes before applying the next coat onto the nail.
Step 5: Once the last layer dries a majority of the way, apply a top coat to the nail. For this application, I choose my new OPI RapiDry Top Coat formula for more of a rapid dry solution to my normal "ruin my nails" problem. Any top coat will do, I just prefer my nails to dry quicker than the norm.
Step 6: ENJOY THE AWESOME EFFECT IT CREATES ON YOUR NAILS :)
