Glitter Ombre

Today called for me to use my favorite polish. Only, I have a few favorite polishes…namely, ones that I think I can actually wear on their own and have them qualify as nail art. This ombre uses three of them.

Although my very favorite polishes oscillates, 3 of my top 5 are present in this manicure. I love large glitter jellies in bold colors! The three that are my favorite are on my ring, middle, and pointer fingers. My pinky was made by layering a different glitter with some red polish, while my thumb is two coats of glitter over a dark green. I need to get myself a pink or red glitter mix at some point to do this for real!

  1. As I had mentioned, it seems to me the “choosing” of polishes may be as hard as the execution of a design. You did well “choosing!” Looks very pretty in deep colors!

    • thanks! I tend to enjoy jewel tone polishes more than anything else, so if I’m going to splurge for a $15 polish, it is going to be a dark color!

      • I ordered some sale polishes from butter London and it seems the same organization either owns or manages Barielle. I signed up for emails and got a 50% off offer on their polishes that had a pretty nice spread of types so it was irresistible, once again, but, as you will agree, life can’t begin and end witih Wet ‘n Wild!

        Maybe there are ways to get to give feedback on many polish merchants’ new lines which gives you the discounts so it doesn’t cost $14 or more per bottle. Do you communicate with that set to review/swatch particular polishes you don’t have to purchase? Or why else do the ongoing favors to merchants who profit from their increased sales?

        BTW, I can’t figure out what a jelly is? Is it a thinned down creme that doesn’t need to be lamp-cured or what? I’d love to play around with that concept but all I used was lots of sec he Vite between layers which worked well in terms of being able to work fairly quickly. Also, the glitter looks so much nicer buried down instead of on the surface.

  2. These are stunning! All of them : )
