Hey guys! I hope you all had a happy and fun 4th of July. Other than dinner at my in-laws, the hubby and I didn't do anything exiting to celebrate since the holiday fell mid-week. We both had to go back to work on Thursday unlike a lot of my friends so, I've just been sitting here envious of all their beach vacation photos they've been posting on facebook ever since. It's okay though... I have spiffy nails that I was able to paint in all my free time.
So for this manicure, I did a variation of the blue ombre nails from a
couple of weeks ago. It wasn't a planned look... it just sort of
evolved. I started out with plain gold nails using Sally
Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish in Gilty Pleasure. Then I
suddenly got the idea to do the ombre look using Essie Nail Polish in
Licorice sponged on with a disposable eyeshadow applicator. And since
I'm never ever satisfied, I topped it off with a coat of China Glaze
Matte Magic and ta dah! Fierce gold and black nails.
I really like the ombre look because it's so quick and easy but still packs a punch. People always notice them and I get a lot of compliments or questions on how in the world I did it. So, do you like the ombre look and what are your favorite color combinations?
Thanks for reading!
