The Lazy Days Of Summer Challenge: Day 2- Summer Ombre

I'm on day 2 of The Lazy Days Of Summer Challenge!  Today's theme is "Summer Ombre".  The first thing I thought of was the colors of a summer sunset:

So those are the colors I had in mind when I chose my polishes:

 L-R Zoya Kalmia, Myrta, Rory, & Chloe, Julep Kate


I did Julep Kate on my pinky and then topped her with Zoya Chole.  For each of the other nails, I used just 2 layers of polish.


Here's a shot with my thumb.  I used the same colors, but striped them on instead:

Here's the other themes I will be working on soon!

  4. This is so pretty! I interpreted it as a gradient one each nail but I did an ombre like yours with various pinks and I loved the final look! I also love that little twist you did with the thumb it's pretty creative and it looks really cute! And that picture is absolutely beautiful. Next time try ombre with cream finish polishes it looks even more polished and chic!

    1. Yeah, gradiant/ombre are pretty interchangeable I think. I did a creme version with teals about a month or so ago and loved that too! :)
