The idea of an ombre manicure is pretty simple. You choose (or make) 5 colors in the same color family from dark to light and paint one on each of your nails. I chose the black/grey family for mine.
Here are the polishes I used:
Thumb: a-England Camelot
Index: OPI Suzi Skis in the Pyrenese
Middle: Essie Power Clutch
Ring: China Glaze Recycle
Pinky: China Glaze Pelican Gray
All of these polishes are cream finish except for Suzi Skis and Pelican Gray. They both have a very slight, hidden shimmer. The shimmer in Suzi Skis is so slight that it is almost imperceptible... but it is indeed there. In general, I love grey polish! Don't you?
