With that said, I give you my "Pantone Nails!" (or muted ombre nails. whatever you want to call them)
|I wore these for a good week and a half haha!|
and to find out how I did them...meet me under the cut!
Now, my favorite part about these nails? Two polishes. Yeah. You read that right. TWO.
Warpaint Slime and Wet n Wild Tropicalia. With just these two colors, I made a bunch of colors inbetween just by mixing!
First I painted the pure polish colors on either pinky. Slime on one side and Tropicalia on the other.
|Like so! (CND stickey underneath as usual!)|
I used a fan brush:
and I plooped two same-sized blobs of color from each onto a piece of paper and mixed like the dickens!
|This color is the halfway point between pink and aqua.|
Then, I mixed the thumb color with the green to make the middle finger color, the thumb color with the middle finger to make the pointer finger color and the middle finger color with the pure polish to make the ring color. If that was confusing....
It is exactly the same for the other hand. Just with pink. Start by getting the half and half from pink and aqua, then mix in that order above!
YOU WILL GET MESSY.
|very. very. messy.|
but then you clean up and all is well!
MUTES! :D the browny gray can be off-putting at first, but once they're all together they look great!
And because this whole mute thing may not have made perfect sense... ART LESSON TIME! (remember the color wheel? hahaha)

That's all this time! I hope you enjoyed my Pantone Nails (graphic designer mom joke!)
Until next time, nail friends!
same nail polish time, same nail polish channel!
