Holiday Ombre

Inspired by the Christmas festivities all around me, I decided to do a fun holiday manicure. I revisited one of my favorite ombre manicure techniques (originally posted back in July).

This time I used no base color. I applied a sparkly red called Cranberry from e.l.f. with a sponge to create the ombre effect. I deeped the color very tip of the nail by painting it with the brush. Once that was dry, I applied a small amount of a glittery gold e.l.f. polish called Golden Goddess. I'm out of Seche Vite (sadface) so I used my OPI topcoat to seal it all up. Ta da!
