Good morning lovelies & happy SEPTEMBER! Kind of crazy this year is down to the last three months… & thank god for that! But September is here, & that means that it is time for me to fully embrace all things Autumn. & I thought the prettiest thing to start my “official” Fall designs with would be a Fall ombré look!
You might remember how last year, the skittlette/ombré look took off, & I love that this super easy nail art look is still super popular! For those who don’t know, the idea is you paint each nail of a finger with a different polish colour; you can either stagger them in a gradation, like I have, or you can just pair together different shades you love! For today’s look, I decided to pair together some red/burgundy shades together that just scream Fall to me.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- OPI A Great Opera-tunity
- OPI First Date At the Golden Gate
- OPI Just Beclaus
- OPI I Sing In Color
- OPI Lincoln Park After Dark
- Essie Shine Of The Times
It’s been a while since I last got to play with my bottle of Essie Shine of The Times, but it is such a perfect topper for Fall, so I thought it would look amazing over these shades. Also, it kind of brings all the polishes together on the nail, which I love when I do a ombré/skittlette look. Plus, I mean, Shine of the Times literally looks amazing on every single polish ever made. I’ve yet to find one it doesn’t look beautiful on!
What do you think about this Fall ombré design? Now that’s it’s September, will you start with some Fall designs or polishes, or will you hold onto Summer a little bit longer? Personally, Autumn is my favourite time of year, so I am so ready for all things Fall! I seriously can’t wait to start decorating my house with some Fall decor as well, & baking! Bring on the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies & pumpkin muffins!
