This is an ombré nail with a rose gold eclipse moon at the base of the nail.
The moon was achieved by painting the nail entirely with the metallic polish (butter London: fairy lights; it photographed more golden. In person the color is a softer rose pink) this polish is extremely reflective, gorgeous! The only criticism I have is that it becomes a bit duller when a topcoat is applied and - if your nails are ridged or bumpy, the polish will enhance inconsistency in the nail bed because of it’s reflective quality.
Next I applied the deep navy color a few millimeters from the edge of the metallic color.
The ombré effect was created by mixing the fuchsia color with clear polish on a paint mixing tray.
I applied the translucent color very carefully in layers with a larger square artists brush making more opaque blends for each layer and allowing ample time for the polish to dry between coats.
Finally, I top-coated for shine and to give the illusion of a flawless gradient.
Inspiration for this nail style came from Christopher Kane’s resort 2012 collection.
