Blue Ombre Mani

•••
I decided to play around and make my own blue ombre mani. My right hand turned out better than my left hand, surprisingly (because I'm right handed), so I tried taking pix with my left hand. Big mistake! Anyway, here are the polishes I used! Thumbs: Milani Beach Front Cult Nails Hypnotize Me Candy Lacquer Princess Bride (1/2 the nail) Pointer:[...]

I used Cult Nails Get it On base coat and Out the Door top coat. [...]

Luxe Banana Mani

And while it's supposedly one[...]
