I've wanted to do an ombre mani for ages, but haven't had the right combo of colours with a similar finish to use. Then when I was looking through my stash for inspiration the other day I realised that I have enough cool toned lilac/purple cremes, so here it is! I had trouble getting accurate colour in the photos, IRL they were slightly less blue, and the thumb was less pink.
Slightly 'worn' but better colour accuracy.

I wore this over the weekend, and slapped a coat of Nubar 2010 ontop this morning, but it chipped before I could photograph it. It held up surprisingly well seeing as we went fruit picking at a farm yesterday and I was digging up beetroot with my hands...I know I shouldn't use my nails as tools, but fresh beetroot? I couldn't resist!
Have you ever tried an ombre mani? I'd like to try black-grey-white next :)
