(L-R) Faded Jeans, Boyfriend Jeans, Dark wash Jeans
I decided I wanted to wear all three, so I did a combo ombre/gradient/sponging on each nail. This was my first time doing this, and I'm pretty happy how it turned out!
I started out with Dark Wash, then sponged a layer of Boyfriend, and finally Faded. I then topped it off with a coat of Butter London Matte topcoat--jeans aren't shiny!
I was in a hurry that day so 2 of my nails got messed up pretty badly. Instead of taking off the polish on those 2 and starting all over, I just patched my jeans ;)
For the patch job, I just did some quick, light and random brush strokes instead of using a sponge and it came out pretty much the same. The only thing, the Boyfriend Jean doesn't show up as well....I think next time I may layer Faded between the two darker shades, like worn-out knees ;)
I really like this mani, you can't really "mess up" on it. And it's got a kindof laid-back, grunge feel to it.
I love Nubar's polish, the brush, the whole 9 yards....and I love their "single color" collections (Chocolate Truffles, Risque Reds, etc). A great way to load up on colors if you don't already have a lot of these in your collection. I think I will probably wind up wearing these three together for manicures in the future.
Do you have either the Chanel or the Nubar--or both?
