China Glaze Ombre "Chasing The Sun" Kit (Nail Polish Pictures, Swatches, Review)


Nail time! I admittedly bought this China Glaze Ombre set from Sally's with no intent of actually 'ombre-ing' with it- I figured since the set was on sale and I had a coupon, it was a great way to buy 4 polishes. After I got home, I realized that it came with sponges to do the gradient/ombre effect. I started reading the instructions and figured I may as well give it a go at least once.

Colors included (L-R) White On White, Sun Worshiper, Pool Party, Flying Dragon

 After painting my nails white and then sponging on the colors, I topped it with China Glaze Fairy Dust and then some top coat:


Very 'sun-setty', no?

Now that I've tried this and actually enjoyed the outcome, I have a feeling I will be ombre-ing it up with other color combinations!


If you want a better understanding of how to achieve this type of effect, check out my pal Nory's video tutorial here:  http://www.fiercemakeupandnails.com/2013/07/sparkly-summer-gradient-video-tutorial.html

Have a fun day!!

Which Is lucky for you because I can NEVER get ombré right, ever. But we bought these with the same intentions.. I wasn't going to do the ombré either. It's just a great deal .. Lol.

  10. I bought this and OMG is it gorgeous. It is so much more pretty in person. The neon polishes are SOOOOOOOOOOO neon out in the sunlight. While I was driving my car I couldn't stop staring at my nails lol. I'm going to have to try putting a glitter topper on it....like China Glaze Fairy Dust.
