'Ombré' Nails.

Good evening!
Whilst I was avoiding doing any revision yesterday afternoon, I decided to paint my nails in an 'Ombré' style. Now, I'm presuming this is the right word, but I'm not sure, hence the ''. I did blue because I know I have enough colours to do it right, I think. Does the transition from shade to shade work?
Incidentally, in the pictures, my thumb and forefinger look practically the same colour. They are not. That is my camera being stupid. In reality they're very different colours.

All Barry M. From left (thumb) to right: '306 Blueberry', '295 Turquoise', '294 Cyan Blue', '291 Cobalt Blue', '292 Navy'.

Even though I painted them less than 24 hours ago, yes, I have already chipped one of my nails. AND I used a topcoat - the one used in this post. Clever me!
That aside, what do you think?

I know I usually do 'Music Monday' today, but I wanted to show you my nails! I might post music tomorrow instead :)

  2. Pretty colours! I might try this - I didn't fancy mixing my own colours especially as my white has gone gloopy!

  6. Awesome :D I love painting my nails in different shades of the same colour, it looks great. And blue is one of my favourite colours for nails at the moment. I feel like it's sort of a forgotten colour for polish.
