brummingbird Gradient nails using the @FormulaXNail #InfiniteOmbre polish set: For this manicure I used the base color, #PlatinumPrime, along with all 4 of the color shades- #LimitlessLemon, #BoundlessBerry, #TimelessTeal, and #InfiniteIndigo. I sponged the 4 vivids over the base color (using a makeup wedge) and then stamped over the ombre gradient (an idea I got from @shifrahtema), once again using the Platinum Prime base. I really like how this manicure turned out. This set is actually OK, at first I didn't like it because the packaging says you can create "never-before-seen nail art with a simple stroke of the brush," heavily implying that anyone can achieve the beautiful nail art depicted on the box with no tools other than the polishes themselves. This is simply not true. Even an experienced nail artist like myself (if I can even claim myself as such..) can't achieve all of those looks using NO tools; as you can tell, I used a makeup wedge, Bliss Kiss Simply Peel latex barrier, a stamping plate, stamper, and scraper all for this one look. Once I realized that I did need tools to make my manicure look decent, I started having way more fun with these polishes. So there's my takeaway from this set: Do what you want with it, not only what the packaging says you should do.

  •   shifrahtema Look great!! Just want to mention I was not the first person to use the silver for stamping, I saw a few others do it, but I can't remember who. 3mon

  •   tlcnaturalhair Looks great. Can this be done with traditional nail polish? 3mon
  •   brummingbird @tlcnaturalhair I would say probably, but it has to be a specific kind of polish- like a more sheer, jelly-like color. It wouldn't work if the color were a creme or opaque. 3mon
  •   tlcnaturalhair Thanks for your response. I will buy this kit and try it out. 3mon

brummingbird #SplitOmbre nails using the @FormulaXNail #InfiniteOmbre polish set: I used #TimelessTeal and #InfiniteIndigo for this manicure, over the #PlatinumPrime basecoat. I like the concept of this polish set but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. The semi-sheer ultra vivid shades are a little too thick and not quite sheer enough to accomplish a true ombre look. If you can't tell, I have Timeless Teal vertically on one half of the nail, Infinite Indigo on the other half, and in the middle the colors are somewhat blended together. I think this manicure looks more "watercolor" than "ombre," personally. The Platinum Prime basecoat is not a color I would ever wear alone, but it does have great opacity and it dries quickly, plus a tiny bit of silver shimmer shines through the sheer ultra vivids and makes this manicure a little bit more interesting.
