With my large nail collection you'd be surprised at how long it took me to try this but finding the perfect colors was a stretch. I had tried before but wasn't satisfied with the colors chosen. When preparing for this blog post I first tried out polishes in violet hues but didn't find them working. I realized my second largest color family in my collection as of lately were oranges so I used the scotch tape trick (shown here) and found the right color gradation for my nails.
If you have a large collection like I do then you can probably achieve this look with going through your polishes and trying which one works. You could also go to the beauty supply store and buy five new polishes that gradate in color but the cheap easy trick if needed is to mix white polish with the previous nail color. I was missing a very light orange so i opted for a white nail instead but if you wanted it true orange you would mix the ring nail color with white. Just like art class in elementary school!
