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?
