I do apologise for not having blogged in a week, work has been a little bit insane and I've also had social engagements every single day, so I've barely been home! I did sit down to write this post on Thursday but unfortunately, I accidentally deleted all the good photos! As you can imagine, I was a little upset, so I decided to take a little break to get over the disappointment.
Anyway, here are some photos of my first attempt at an ombré gradient manicure. I do apologise for the quality of the photos, but these are all I had left after inadvertently deleting the rest (I couldn't take more photos either as I'd already removed the manicure)! :( Oh well, I'll just share what I do have with you, and take more photos the next time I do another gradient manicure.
I used Zoya Valerie for the basecoat, and sponged on Zoya Arielle and Essence Sparkling Water Lily over it for the ombré gradients.
I was quite happy with how it turned out, but then I got to wondering what it would look like with a glitter overlay, so I applied a layer of Essence Time for Romance over all the nails, and voilá!
What did you think of my first ombré attempt, lovelies? Do you prefer it with or without the glitter overlay?
I hope you enjoyed that little post, and I will have more upcoming posts to share soon, so please stay tuned!
