Kind of an hombre?

I haven't played around much with hombre nails.  Mostly because I feel like I don't have enough colors in the same range that would create an hombre effect.  Anyways, today I made horizontal stripes in pink! I used OPI Bubble Bath as a base pink.

(Yes, that is my right hand.  Weird. And for some reason the nails on my right hand are larger than my left.  I hate it.)

Was debating whether I should have the dark pink on the tips, or dark pink on the base of the nail.  I seriously couldn't decide.  I figured light pink at the tips might take on a french manicure look.  But I thought it would look cool with the darker on the tips.  So I did both! I taped off my nails and added my mid-way pink.  It is called 'Sexier' and came with a Lily of France bra that my grandma got, and gave me the nail polishes.  Weird? Maybe a little. But my grandmas awesome so its okay.  

This was the resulting effect.

I waited a while for that to dry (I ate dinner, Old Spaghetti Factory leftovers, they were delicious)
And then added my last pink OPI's Strawberry Margarita.

Please ignore the mess up on the pinky.  It looks terrible from here, the picture makes it look way worse than it is hahaha.  Anyways, that was the final effect.  Do you guys like it? To be perfectly honest, it just didn't do it for me.  There is something that isn't my favorite about it.  Thoughts?

For Audrey Part Two

So I woke up and still LOVED the Tiffanys blue that was on my fingers.  I remember seeing pictures of for audrey before I got it and always thinking it wasn't exactly Tiffanys Blue.  However, here I am proving myself wrong.

Thats so the perfect color! 

So later on, (tonight) I decided to add white tips to see what it would look like.  I did it super quickly, without the intention of leaving it on, so yes it looks terrible.  Don't judge.

I really like the way it looks!! What do you guys think?

For Audrey!

So I know I am like years late on this, but I went to my local Sally Beauty today and got China Glazes For Audrey.  I have wanted it forever, just never went ahead and got it. (Plus China Glaze is like super hard to come by in my area.) I absolutely love the color, and am so excited for everything that could come of it! I think it would look really good with white tips, or with white stamps, also, if you painted white nails and used For Audrey as the tips, I think its a great color!

P.S. Terrible pic....I was in a movie theatre before the movie started and had an argument with a friend over chubby fingers...which resulted in me taking a picture of my hand to send.  Nonetheless, while my skin looks ghostly, I think it is pretty accurate of For Audrey, Such a gorgeous color! While I was putting it on, a coworker walked by and said "Ooh looks just like tiffanys."
