Preen.me is partnering with Sephora Formula X and I was lucky enough to get the chance to check out the new Sephora Formula X Infinite Ombre kit. Not familiar with Preen.me? It’s a 100% user generated beauty website- you can make an account to upload your own looks (and list which products were used) or just browse existing looks.
The Sephora Formula X Infinite Ombre kit contains 4 colors (boundless berry, infinite indigo, timeless teal and limitless lemon) along with the accompanying base and top coat. Here’s some information from the Sephora site about the kit:
Pull off ombré nail looks with this innovative set that makes nail art easy. It features a kaleidoscopic array of five lacquers, uniquely designed to fuse with one another while wet, allowing you to blend, stripe, dot, and marble your way to never-before-seen nail art in a few effortless brush strokes.
Simply layer the colored lacquers over the Platinum Prime silver base once dry and watch your mani transform instantly into any effect of your choice—from ombré to tie-dye to water color effects—the design possibilities are infinite. This set includes an illustrated, step-by-step tutorial for three eye-catching looks so you can paint on eye-catching color hybrids that revamp nails into stunning works of art.
For the nail art look I created today, I started with the silver base coat. You need less polish on the brush than you think you would, it’s pretty opaque in one coat. It is streaky but it gets covered up anyways so don’t worry too much about that.
Once that was dry, I applied a coat of the yellow, then a light coat of the green. I took the brush of the purple shade and pretty much wiped off all that I could from it before using it to drag across the nail diagonally to reveal some of the layers underneath. I chose not to use the red and it enacted it’s revenge around this point by tipping over and spilling all over my desk, grrr.
Anyways, I thought this would make a really awesome base for some stamping so I used Konad white and a design from the Messy Mansion MM21 plate to stamp on top, then finished everything up with Out The Door top coat. I also shared a quick tutorial of this on instagram.
Overall, I think this was fun and I can’t wait to play around with these some more. They were definitely more pigmented than I was expecting so you can really use a lot less than you think you may have to. Have you tried out the Infinite Ombre kit yet? What do you think of this idea? Let me know in the comments!
