10 Day Challenge: Day 10 - Ombre Nails

Oh My Goodness Babes, we have made it to day 10. I was seriously frustrated on some days but I had a blast through it all. Up today for our last day is Ombre Nails which is basically a gradient that fades on each finger versus on one finger. I had to re-do these twice and they still came out ugly but hey you win some you lose some. I used Bettina Art Deco Aqua and Nature Clouds to do this mani. What I did was I painted my pinkie with ADA and then with each finger I dropped 3 drops, then 6, then 9.... The first time I only did 1-4 but you couldn't see a significant difference in the pictures so I went back and tripled it instead. I really think its just the color I chose, I should have went with a primary color. I'm definitely not giving up on this, I will revisit it until I master it. Well onto the epic fail formerly know as my gradient mani lol.
