Lilactric ombre

Lately I'm into nail designing again... I don't know why. Maybe because I'm addicted to all these videos on YouTube. (; Before I was at a workplace where nail polish isn't allowed, so maaaybe I'm catching up on this now.
Ok, on to the nail design: A simple light violet ombre! :D

Actually this is the first time I did an ombre nail design... sounds strange, right? Because ombre is everywhere and it's already so 'old' that I feel dumb. The reason I did this design was... I bought new nail polishes~ haaaa! I love these two colors. Below you can see how gorgeous they are. *0*

Because I couldn't decide which color I should take as base color I decided to take both. (;
A short step-by-step again:

You need: 2 or more different nail polishes (I took 2), a simple make-up sponge (you can cut it in smaller pieces so you can re-use the sponge for other designs), top coat

1.) Use the color you chose as your base color and paint it on your whole nail. Maybe you'll need two coats. I used two different colors as base coats and alternated on each finger.

2.) Use the other color and drip a few drops of polish on a piece of paper. Take your sponge, dip it in the color and now just dab it on your nails.

3.) Try to create a gradient by dabbing more color on the tip of your nail. To blend the colors and have a beautiful shine use a clear top coat. Done! :D

Easy-peasy! (;

Awww~ these colors are so pretty and I'm in love with my nails! Color #1 is Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer '30 Lilactric', #2 is essenge color & go nail polish '173 over the rainbow'.
My camera couldn't catch the gorgeousness of both colors but on the last picture you can see the shimmers a little bit. The dark polish is a blue-ish duochrome violet, the light polish is a really light violet with greenish-yellow-golden shimmer. *0*
Are these colors your cup of tea?
