Nail art challenge - Day #7

When I heard ombre nails I thought of sponging the colour on to my nails, and then later realised, I like many others had got ombre confused with gradient. Rewind. I saw others' posts of their gradients, and many had got one polish and added white to make it lighter, and black to make it darker. I did a cheat's version and used five different shades of neutrals to brown. I really like these shades and hadn't used them for a while so it was a good chance to use them again.
Starting from my thumb - left to right - I used:
* No7 Stay Perfect in So Simple
*Models Own in Naked Shimmer
* 17 Supreme Shine in Mink
* Rimmel in Posh Trash
*Get the Look in Fawn.
The Rimmel looks darker in the bottle so I am not sure it was on the right nail for the ombre, but it gave a nice shimmer anyway. The Models Own Naked Shimmer was my favourite to put on as it glided on easily.

OK, only just managed that before midnight! Please do let me know what you think of these colours and ombre design.
