Ombre nails! I love it![ Edited ]
So, I have been playing with all the new ideas for doing nailpolish (curse that pintrest board). I came across the sponging technique to get an ombre effect. I picked two pretty safe colors for my first try... but was looking for some unusual combinations (but still pretty). Any suggestions?
This was my first try:

Pretty!! I'm with beautytester, if it's just two colors you can pretty much do whatever you want. Another thing that is fun to do is use a matte topcoat over the gradient, especially if you use polishes that contain some shimmer. It ends up looking like satin. Here's one that I uploaded to here during the summer:
What do you on your cuticles? Some of mine are tough, and it's hard to get them pushed back as far others.

If it's 2 colors, you can pick pretty much anything. If it's 3 colors, any color in the same family or close to it will work (green/blue/purple, yellow/orange/red) or any classic pattern (camo: gray, green, brown. Seaside sunset: blue, bronze/orange, and either green or reddish orange).
I don't have a spong and was too lazy, so I just used a solid blue polish, then a sheer/med purple on top. Applied directly to nails, but multiple coats of purple towards the end for the gradient effect. (pfft, the only clear pic I can get of it with my phone is of my pinky, so here it is).
