I am loving the new Ombre Nail trend for spring. I did a warm chocolate ombre nail for this past fall where each nail had a gradient effect. Each individual nail faded out from a deep chocolate, through a bronze shade, and ended with a beautiful gold shad at the tips. This spring it appears that the trend is to have your whole nail be one single color, with each individual nail representing a gradual fade of color from the thumb out to the pinky fingers.
Below are the images and information for the products that I used in this manicure.
I always start any manicure with my base coat. Last summer I was the unfortunate victim of badly stained nails, and I have since started using a base coat to protect my nails. Essie Rock Solid has provided a great barrier for preventing stains, and acts as a nail strengthener as well.
I painted my thumb and pointer finger on each hand. I used this Wet N Wild shad called Red Tape. It is a very orangey based vibrant red. I had to use two coats to achieve the shade in the video.
For my middle finger on both hands I used this BEAUTIFUL coral shade by Rimmel Lasting Pro called Sunset Orange. This color was in my March 2012 Favorites video. It has a very unique brush, if you would like to see that go ahead and click for the video. I had to use three coats of this shade to achieve the look used this tutorial.
For each of my little pinky nails I used the Wet N Wild Mega Last polish in Sugar Coated. These polishes have the same type brush as the rimmel lasting pro polishes. I used two coats of this polish in the tutorial.
Last but NEVER least, is my Seche Vite Fast Dry Top coat. What is a manicure without a super shiny, ultra fast dry top coat? :-)
