Twinsie Tuesday: Monochromatic

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  It is Tuesday so that means it is time for another Twinsie Tuesday!  This week our theme is monochromatic!  I honestly wasn't sure what this meant, so I went to Google and did a quick search for "monochromatic nail art".  I found dozens and dozens of ombre manicures as well as different nail art using different shades of one color.

Now you would think after knowing what it means and seeing dozens of ideas it would be easy for me to come up with a design, but it wasn't.  It took me a whole day to figure out what color I should use.  Then once I figured out the color, I had to pick out the different shades.  And then finally, one I had the shades, I had to figure out the design.  It was one thing after the other, and I'm pretty sure I changed my mind twenty times.

I finally settled on a purple dry brush grunge-y looking manicure.  Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • Five different purple polishes which I cannot remember at the moment and really should have written down
I know, I know, I failed with the whole not remembering what purple polishes I used.  I'm sure if I went over to my Melmer and opened my purple drawer, I would be able to figure it out, but since I'm already past the color section in this post, I don't feel like going back.  Laziness at it's finest.

After my base of white polish was dry, I used a light purple polish and did a few dry brush marks.  I then added more streaks of slighly darker polishes until I got to the darkest shade.  It looks more variegated in real life, my camera just stinks at picking up the different shades.

Overall, I think it's a monochrome look.  I probably should have just done a regular ombre design and called it a day, but I wanted to try something different.

What do you think?  Pass or fail for today's prompt?
