When I first started getting into nail art, Ombre nails were all the trend. Even though they aren’t as popular as they once were, I still think they’re a great look. I hadn’t done ombre nails in a while so I decided to give them another try. I was feeling a purple manicure, so I grabbed five purple polishes as close to each other in tone and created a quick ombre.
The polishes I used for this manicure were:
- Essence Beauty Beats Baby Ooh Ooh — thumb.
- Essence Color and Go Break Through — pointer.
- China Glaze What a Pansy — middle.
- ACO by Ardene Purple Rain — ring finger.
- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure I Lilac You — pinky.
- OPI I Snow You Love Me — glitter placement.
- Essie Go to Go Top Coat.
Plus side of owning a TON of polish–makes it easy to match a few up to create a quick ombre which still looks like the colors are supposed to go together. I also added some glitter to create a rhinestone look, just for an extra little something-something. It just pulls the whole look together for me.
So what do you think of these ombre nails? Like I said, I still really love the ombre manicure so I could see myself doing this with all sorts of different colors. Also I’m really digging I Snow You Love Me for all the glitter placement possibilities. Plus from a distance it looks like rhinestones on the nails (but without the worry that I would knock them off in about 2 seconds at work.)
Also I’m seriously addicted to the Skinny Caramel Macchiatos at Starbucks. I go through waves of being addicted to certain drinks, and they’re my drug of choice right now. So delicious.
