Do you notice something slightly different about this manicure? — Yup! You got it. The colors of each nail varies slightly in shade as you move from the pinky to the thumb. I’d actually never heard of this until I saw it over on Polished and Refined when KayJay completed this technique in a purple shade.
Gradient coloring is referred to as ombre. This can be done with nails, hair or clothing, I’ve found.
KayJay happened to have also just completed a pictorial on this pretty cool technique. She makes it look simpler and a not as messy as I thought it would be. Check it out HERE.
