31DC2012: Day 21 Inspired by a Color

Day 20 of the challenge is a bit late. This is definitely the strangest day of the challenge, a color is a very simple thing to find inspiration in so I kind of got lazy and just went for a purple ombre. So I guess you could say I was kind of inspired by purple?! I've never actually done an ombre manicure before and I really struggled to find the right colours for this one.

Stop by Let Them Have Polish and Nails and Noms for some pretty manis!



The colours used from thumb to pinky are:
Sally Hansen Plum Night
Cult Nails Vicious
E.L.F. Purple Pleaser
Color Club Pucci-Licious
Sally Hansen No Hard Feelings
I topped it off with a top coat of Seche Vite. My first bottle is starting to get thick and I can see the shrinkage problem starting to take hold!

  2. Sometime simple is best- I love this. And seeing this post has made me realize that I have never done an ombre mani before!

  3. I was just noticing the same thing from my first bottle of Seche Vite and I ordered some Seche restore online so here's hoping that helps!

  4. All five of those colours are pretty in their own right. I think I would have trouble trying to get the right five colours for an ombre out of my collection. You did well!

  7. That's really nice, I'm sure it also can be beautiful with blue nailpolishes.

  14. Even when my Seche Vite starts getting thick, wrapping my tips with it seems to help prevent the dreaded shrinkage most of the time

  15. What fabulous shades of purple!

  16. Seche Restore did work well for me. I was incredibly drawn to the shade on your ring finger...perhaps because I own it, one of my fave polishes. Silly me, I was thinking "ooh, I need that color." Now I finally understand why people have spoon collections and nail wheels.
