Twinsie Tuesday - Ombre Nails

Good morning, dear readers! :D

Today is Twinsie Tuesday!!

Ombre nails are the theme for today.

For this manicure I had a tough time finding polishes that matched really well for the ombre look, so I made mini ombre patterns (the middle, index and thumb, and the middle, ring and pinky) going in each direction from the middle nail.  Does that make any sense? : /  I then tried to make gradients on each nail.  I then added a couple coats of Color Club Covered in Diamonds.  After that, I tried to paint around the nail art in black acrylic paint, but my hand wasn't so steady and the bumpiness from the flakies didn't help.  So here is my confusing mess of a manicure! :D

Don't forget to check out these lovely ladies blogs for their Twinsie posts! :D

  6. This is completely wonderful! I just can't get over how beautiful it really is!
