a/k/a Money Tips. haha. Needed green in my life.I’ve been thinking to attempt this for a while.
Ombré French derivation. meaning shaded. It is used in relation to textiles (a) as an adjective to describe fabrics with a dyed, printed, or woven design in which the colour is graduated from light to dark;
shaded or graduated in tone: said of a color
Do you realize how difficult it is to find five shades of the same color family that GRADUALLY move from light to dark??!?!?! Try it. -_- Still easier than creating the shades myself though.
I have three other color families to attempt.
OPI “Gargantuan Green Grape” OPI “Green-wich Village” China Glaze “Four Leaf Clover” (showing up more blue in the photo than in real life) China Glaze “Starboard” OPI “Jade Is the New Black”
My nails wanted to make a statement. Wanted to be “heard”.
So I pulled out bold and bright primary & a couple secondary colors in the loudest temperature I owned. And let them scream.
For some odd reason the blue base in the purple is so strong it’s difficult to differentiate it from the blue in the pictures. If I can get a clear picture to show PURPLE instead of blue, I will post asap!
concept better than reality: Nicole Miller “French Vanilla” (base) OPI “Green-wich Village” & dark pink acrylic paint (applied w/nail art brush") Color Club Nail Art Striper “Crème de Razzery” & “Glitter Hologram”
Reality better than expected: OPI “Sparrow Me The Drama” green acrylic paint & Color Club white nail art striper inspired by: TopCoatIt’s "argyle nails”
new attempts: OPI “You Don’t Know Jacques!” Color Club Nail Art Striper “Crème De Razerry” Stripe Right green nail art striper
i love it.
