How to make an ombré drip mug

Home manicurists will love this project, as nail polish is the medium for creating an ombré drip mug. As an adjective, ombré refers to the gradual increase or decrease of colors in the same family as they blend into one another.
This mug's design is simple and won't overwhelm a room's decor. Choose any group of colors, but we think a mug done in blues — such as the one in this tutorial — would look nice holding toothbrushes or a guest washcloth in a bathroom.

Instructions
1. Wrap painter's tape around the top of the mug's circumference. Set the mug on its side on the piece of paper or cardboard.
2. Apply a generous amount of nail polish along 2 to 3 inches of the bottom of the tape where it meets the mug. Stand the mug up. Let the polish drip down the mug.
3. Repeat step 2 for the second polish.
4. Lift the mug slightly from the paper and repeat step 2 for the third polish, turning the mug as you go. Finish the circumference with the second nail polish color. Let the paint dry.
