Honestly, I’m not a fan of the ombré hair…it looks like someone just let their roots go waaaayyy too long. But the makeup and nails I’m totally on board with.
So, for today’s Try It Tuesday, I decided to do just that: ombré nails.
I found this on Pinterest:
It seemed easy enough, and given my last nail art fiasco, I needed something easy and hard to screw up.
The directions said to use three colors that would look like a natural gradient. The only three colors that looked well together were these three:
I did just as the site said and painted the sponge and “stamped” my nails. I LOVED how easy it was! Yeah, I got some polish on my skin, but I just used the other end of the sponge to wipe it off. It was so simple and I loved how it turned out:
I also tried another Pinterest find! How many of you have seen the claim that spraying Pam on your nails will get them perfectly dry in five minutes?
If you’re like me, you scoffed. “Can Pam really dry my nails in five minutes?” So I decided this was the perfect time to experiement. I tried it (I was a little afraid it wouldn’t work because I didn’t have original Pam. I used the olive oil kind) and five minutes later I had dry nails!
Now, granted, I did use quick dry nail polish (the darker pink/purple) so that may sway the scientific findings. But still—it didn’t mess up my polish so I can have confidence next time I want to paint my nails with slow drying polish!
