Ombre Nails

Whilst I was casually flicking through Heat magazine at the weekend, I saw a sneaky little article about Lauren Conrad's nails and let's face it, I am nail obsessed at the moment - here is the proof.

So I decided to recreate her ombre style nails, but in blues (for some reason I seem to have a lot of blues..). Here are my blues - ok so I started with black because I didn't have the enough - Rimmel 60 Seconds in black, then MAC's Wonder Woman (still my absolute favourite and not just because it's WW) in Spirit of Truth then a random colour I found in Primark, MissTique by Missguided and finally Blueberry by Barry M.

Now I'll be the first to admit it's not the smoothest ombre I've ever seen, but for a first go - just rooting through my current nail polishes I don't think it's all that bad.

Now I have every excuse to go and raid the shops for five shades of every colour.. that's ok right? Are you trying the ombre look on your nails as well as your hair?


  1. I think you have done a fabulous job, pink ombre next?

  2. Pink ombre is definitely next! I don't have enough polishes though - surprising I know. I will rectify that this week. I think brown/greige/natural might also get a shot too.
