Ombre Nails

I became obsessed with ombre manicures  lately.   I love this trend, not only because its fun, but its so easy to do. So what's exactly are ombre nails?  Its a manicure using five different polishes of the same tone, that graduate from light to dark.  Paint the lightest color on your pinky and finish with the darkest on your thumbnail.  This looks great in any shade from nude to bright pinks, or my personal favorite- purples!  Just make sure is to get a smooth gradation of color.  Try not to jump too far when pick colors from one shade to the next, so your ombre manicure looks intentional.

I think it's so fun to do for spring time!!! My problem is that I am so bad with keeping up with my nails! I get too lazy to take it off and let it be lol

@ Yvonne- I'm totally opposite. I can't wear the same polish on my nails for more than 2 days :)

Not surprisingly, I've never heard of doing this, but it's a very charming look, especially in the color pallet you chose. But then, I've always had a soft spot for pinks and purples ;)

very pretty! i've also been wanting to try ombre, like on a single nail it fades from dark to light

I'm such a fan! I love how it looks. It's a fun take on traditional manicures. And...I'm like you...I can't wait to try a new look on my nails after 2 days. =) Thankfully I do my own nails!
