This is my first Ombre!  Believe it or not, my stash is pretty small compared to many others.  I like to play and experiment with nail art more than I like to collect polishes.  I might have 200 polishes.  I haven't counted in a long time.  For my ombre, I chose pink because that was really my only option.  I have tons of blues and greens and lots of other stuff, but none that really worked well together or were all the same finish.  Pink it is!

You know me, I can't just leave it with plain old polish.  I had to play with it.  I started with a framed ombre, but wasn't all that happy with it.  I like my pinkie, ring and middle fingers, but the index and thumb colors are just too close.  You can't really see the framing.  So I started over on my other hand.

Again, I couldn't leave well enough alone and went with a gradient ombre.  I got the idea from The Swatchaholic.  Her illustrations look much better than my nails do.  I actually really like all but my middle finger.  The colors are just too contrasting so it doesn't make for a good transition.  To be honest, I liked each mani better before I went all nail art on them.  While I do like both results, I should've stopped white I was ahead.

The polishes I used are: Sinful Colors Easy Going, OPI Pink Friday, Milani Pink Hottie, LA Splash Blowfish Purple, Sally Hansen Berry Tantalizing Creme, Color Club Reddy or Not and China Glaze Velvet Bow.  I finished everything off with Poshé top coat.
