As I've said before, I'm a bit of a massive nerd. So, I thought I'd combine two of my loves, being a nerd and painting my nails, in honour of the release of the Hunger Games movie (going to a midnight screening tonight. Excited!) Here is my tutorial for Katniss Everdeen inspired 'Girl on Fire' ombre nails!
video from Pixie Polish that demonstrates fantastic blending.
Step 4: Blend in your next colour. I originally planned to just blend straight from red to orange, but I found that the orange wasn't quite strong enough to show up on the black. This is where the yellow came in handy. I added a little yellow along the top of my nail, then layered the orange over this and it brought out the orange colour a lot more, and also created more of a gradient. Then blend the orange and red together, about halfway up your nail, like you did the red and black.
Some examples of my blending process.
Now, go out there and show the Capitol what you're made of!
