Pinspiration ~ Ombré French

By now I think we can agree that Pinterest is a wonderful time suck and amazing spot for all kinds of ideas and inspiration. I heart going to my mani board for new ideas, including this one! What a simple, but beautiful new take on the French mani! I traced it back to the creator and it seems to be a gel Japanese mani.

I started with two coats of China Glaze Sunset Sail. A peach nude with a hint of silver shimmer. I then mixed Sunset Sail and Sinful Snow Me White for the gradient with a makeup sponge, doing to rounds of sponging on each nail. I always need a hint of glitz so tried to stamp the animal print French image from plate with the holo hunkyness of China Glaze I'm Not Lion. It wasn't dense enough to pick up the full image but added the tiniest particles of holo on the tips which I'm good with too!
