Lazy Days of Summer: Summer Ombre

I have another LDoS challenge mani for you.  Ombre's are so much fun.  They are a little work if you are like me and don't have a large stash of polishes with different shades of the same color.  I used just one polish for this mani.  You can see my other Ombre HERE which has a link to the tutorial I used.  However, I had to go a different route with this color.  Turns out you can't add black to an orange neon.  Ask me how I know!  So, I started on my thumb with the color at full strength and then added white as I went to each nail.  I like how it turned out.  The color is a little out of my comfort zone but when it isn't so "in your face" it's a nice touch of summer.  What do you think?

Base Coat:  Rejuvacote
Base Color:  Color Club Lava Lamp
Top Coat:  Seche Vite

I have such a hard time photographing my right hand.  I can never get my fingers to line up how I want.  This is the best I could do, sorry.  I will keep practicing and hopefully it won't look so awkward.

Thanks for stopping in to see my nails!!

  1. Can't say your picture looks akward! (it just a bit small ;-)) Love the ombre and love the colors you used!

  2. Very nice job mixing your colours--the ombre is so subtle and pretty!
