Nail style #24: Dark ombre with a peacock accent.
While tooling around on Pinterest, I came across this little guy:
I painted my ring finger nude (Essie Sand Tropaz), then my pointer fingers, middle fingers and pinkies in Essie Butler, Please. My thumbs are Sally Hansen Golden-I.
To make the ombre, I poured some black polish (Essie Licorice) onto a plastic surface (I used my nail polish placemat…shiny business cards work, too.) and dipped a clean eyeshadow brush into it. Then, I dabbed the black onto the tops of my nails, thicker and top and thinner toward the middle, to create the ombre.
For the peacock accent, I followed that photo pretty much exactly. After a few attempts, I scrapped the accent on my right hand and just painted it solid gold, like my thumbs.
What do you think?
