A few months ago Sally Hansen released a collection of glitters designed to help you achieve an ombre glitter effect. I call it a glitter gradient, but they are the same thing. The Insta-Ombre is created by following the directions on the back of the bottle.
Apply one coat and wait one minute.
Apply second coat from mid-nail to tip and wait one minute.
Apply third coat to nail tip.
Here are the results. I applied each following the directions and without a base coat.
I really think the only thing "insta" about this glitter is the directions. You can use these directions with any glitter and achieve the same effect. I do like that the glitters are fine which creates a nice delicate effect. I would also use a base color because the glitters don't provide full coverage. Lastly, you can't beat the price!
This limited-edition Insta-Ombre™ collection, SRP $5.99, is now available at chain drugstores and mass retailers nationwide.
