Electric Ombre Gradient
I wanted to see if I could recreate some nail art from Picture My Nails on Instagram. She created this using polishes from the Formula X Infinite Ombre collection. (We all know this is a gradient, but sigh…!)
I don’t have those polishes and they don’t sell Formula X in the UK (grrrr…even though it’s made here!!) so I chose a couple from my stash which I thought were similar.
OPI Push And Shove
Dior Topcoat Tie Dye
As Royal is relatively sheer and Dior’s topcoat is a good shade match, I think I did quite well. I think that the Formula X polishes must be in between these two for opacity – Royal is on the opaque side and needed very little, where as the Dior was very sheer and needed two coats. It was also quite thick – a lot like the OPI sheers from last year.
Overall I was pretty happy with how it turned out, but felt it needed something extra. I decided to stamp over it using Essie No Place Like Chrome and Born Pretty Store’s lace stamping plate.
