  1. Sweet mint gradient nails

    Pastel teal ombre manicure

    I created this manicure with only two nail polishes — pale blue (as seen on my thumb) and pastel green (as on my pinky). The rest of the colours were achieved by mixing these two nail polishes.


  2. Blue Ombre

    I created this gradient effect with an ordinary make-up sponge using three nail polishes listed below.


  3. Halloween Manicure — Bloody Fangs

    During my transition from long oval shape to short square shape, I decided to and play around with different shapes and sizes. As a result I came up with a very extreme nail design for Halloween.


  4. Pink Glitter and White French Tips

    To create his glamorous gradient from pale pink glitter to white, I used Beauty UK: Glam Nails — Pink Glitter No.74 as a glittery base for my manicure (I applied two coats). Then, using Madeline Poole’s technique I applied white nail varnish to my tips. It doesn’t really matter what nail polish to use, as soon as it’s pure white and opaque. But here I used W7 — 34 White.

  5. Black Crackle on Green French Tips

    I made this mani because I wanted to try out my new nail polishes: Color Club — Twiggie, Color Club — Wild Cactus and W7 — Earthquake Black. Since my gradient from pale to emerald green came out not very good, I had to cover it with black crackle nail polish by W7. Crackles came out even and fine, that I liked a lot.

    I’m officially obsessed with gradients! Moreover, I love the process of mixing nail polishes to achieve the right shade. It makes me feel so arty and creative. This time I combined two of my favourite techniques — Ombre and Stamping — to create simple and not boring nail art design. (more…)


  7. Classic French Ombre

    I don’t do classic nail designs often. Most of them seem to me a little bit boring and dull. Than’t why, even if I’m in a classy mood, I make something that is more interesting than pink base and white tips. That’s how I came up with this classic french ombre nail design. (more…)


  8. Fifty Shades of Grey Manicure

    Grey ombre nails

    I do not have five different shades of grey nail polish. These shades were achieved by mixing grey nail polish with black and white polishes. Only the middle finger is painted with original Rimmel: 60 Seconds — 805 Grey Matter. The most boring part about making gradients is that you’ll need to apply two coats, which means that you’ll have to mix polishes two times for each shade. (more…)


  9. Flamy Ombre Nail Art

    Flamy orange red ombre nails

    Despite the fact that shades of orange, brown and yellow are my least favourite colours, today I was in the mood to create something fiery, flamy. Thus, I came up with the gradient, from the darkest shade of brown (almost black) to the lightest orange. (more…)
