Valentine's Day Inspired Ombre Nails

I've let loose yesterday and I've created two Valentine's Day inspired ombre nail designs which I hope you'll like because they're ridiculously easy to make. I did not have enough patience with all the cute, tiny heart designs and my ombre never lets me down. First ombre combo is set on the red, white and glitter theme. I've used the white Catrice nail polish as a base. One things though, this particular shade (Snow Motion!) is really hard to work with because it's really streaky and I had to use three coats which left quite a mess. Luckily, the next two steps camouflaged all that mess. I took a small sponge (even a bit of the kitchen sponge will do), poured some Revelique High Shine polish in the fire engine Adrenalin on the covers of an old magazine, soaked the edge of the sponge and dabbed away on the nail tips, progressively to the middle of the nails. When my red tips were dry, I topped it off with my trusty Essence Topper in Circus Confetti! Fun and easy, this combo is an eye-catcher. I used following shades to recreate this nail look:

Jucer sam se prepustila i kreirala sam dva nail dizajna inspirisana Valentinovim za koja se nadam da ce vam se dopasti iz razloga sto ih je nevjerovatno lako napraviti. Nisam imala dovoljno strpljenja za slatka, malena srdasca a ombre tehnika me do sada jos nije izdala. Prva kombinacija se zasniva na crvenoj i bijeloj boji te mnogo sljokica. Koristila sm bijeli Catrice lak za nokte kao bazu. Jednu stvar moram napomenuti a to je da je sa ovom odredjenom nijansom (Snow Motion!) jako tesko raditi posto ostavlja vidljive prugice a ja sam nanijela tri sloja koja su izgledala prilicno neuredno. Srecom su slijedeca dva koraka uspjela da zakamufliraju taj nered. Uzela sam malu spuzvicu (moze vam cak posluziti i komadic obicne kuhinjske spuzve), izlila sam malo Revelique High Shine laka za nokte u jarko crvenoj Adrenalin nijansi na korice starog casopisa, natopila ivicu spuzve i u slojevima utapkavala lak sa spuzve po rubu, prelazeci do sredine noktiju. Kada su vrhovi bili suhi, sve sam zavrsila sa svojim pouzdanim Essence sljokicastim nadlakom u nijansi Circus Confetti! Zabavna i jednostavna, ova kombinacija privlaci paznju. Koristila sam slijedece nijanse lakova za postizanje ovog izgleda noktica:

Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer / Snow Motion! (470) 

Revelique High Shine Nail Polish / Adrenaline (40) 

Essence Nail Art Special Effect Topper / Circus Confetti (02) 

The second Valentine's Day inspired ombre nail design is a bit muted, perhaps more fitting for those who don't enjoy all the extra attention but still wish to celebrate Valentine's in a romantic way. I used Chanel Le Vernis in Rose Paradise as a base. This soft pinky hue with light golden shimmer is beautiful on its own and suited the following nail polish perfectly. Next step is the same one with the sponge. I packed the edge of the sponge with Deborah Milano's Pret-A-Porter nail polish in Purple Batik, a shimmery and vibrant fuchsia. Tips were finished in a few dabbing strokes and I was ready to finish the entire nail look with a wonderful shimmery top coat from Revelique in the shade Milky Way (combo of silver and golden specks). And that's all there's to it. A bit of ombre and a bit of shimmer make a perfect duo every time. The best thing about these nail designs is that you can wear them whenever you wish, not only for Valentine's, although they give a bit of love-is-in-the-air feel. For this nail design I used:

Drugi nail dizajn inspirisan Valentinovim je malo prigusenih boja te je mozda prikladniji za osobe koje ne uzivaju u dodatnoj paznji a ujedno zele proslaviti Valentinovo na romantican nacin. Koristila sam Chanel Le Vernis lak u nijansi Rose Paradise kao bazu. Ova mekana ruzicasta nijansa obogacena njeznim zlacanim glitterom je sama po sebi jako lijepa i savrseno se uklopila sa narednom nijansom laka. Deborah Milano Pret-A-Porter lak Purple Batik je sljokicasta boja fuksije. Vrhovi su zavrseni u par poteza utapkavanja ove nijanse spuzvicom te sam odmah nakon toga bila spremna da kompletiram noktice sa krasnim glitterastim Revelique nadlakom u nijansi Milky Way (kombinacija srebrnih i zlatnih sljokica). I to je to. Malo ombre prelaza i malo sljokica uvijek tvore savrsen dvojac. Najbolja stvar vezano za ova dva nail dizajna je to sto ih mozete nositi kada god pozelite, ne samo za Valentinovo, iako imaju u sebi malo tog ljubav-je-u-zraku feelinga. Za ovaj nail look sam koristila:

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish / Rose Paradise (185) 

Deborah Milano Pret-A-Porter Nail Polish / Purple Batik (15) 

Revelique Glitter Nail Polish / Milky Way (10)
