Just a quick post today about my latest experiment with nail art. I love the ombre nail look but I decided to turn it on it's head a little and work with colors that weren't even related to each other on the color chart but have a nice Southwestern feel: sandy beige, turquoise, and coral. The base color is the beige and it's a nice neutral and fairly close to my skin tone (still very pale right now, heh, but I'll work on it!). Then I sponged on color just at the tips with the turquoise and coral on alternating fingers. For fun and because I'm such a metallic freak I dusted on some pearly white powder on each tip to give it some sheen.
The result is kind of a cool desert look I think...though it also seems a touch like Easter :) I love the splattered color made with the sponge and this may look dynamite on longer nails...if only mine didn't break so damn much.
What do ya think?
Polishes used were from butter london and Mineral Source :)
