Pushing The Nail Boat Out - Ombre Nails


Ever get those days where you want to do something a bit more fancy with your nails but can't be bothered getting out the stamping plates or the dotting tools? I do. Which is why when I came across Lily Pebbles simple ombre nails I thought I'd jump on board and headed to my nail polish stash to search for the perfect colours.

I have purposely not shown my thumb as whichever polish I chose didn't flow as well with the others so I shall have to go on the hunt to complete the set but I think the other four look on the same colour scheme. From top to bottom we have the Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Rose Libertine followed by Essie's Cute As A Button. Next I chose the Barry M Nail Paint in Coral and finished everything off with Essie's Fifth Avenue. There's nothing complicated or time consuming with the manicure and it's definitely something I'll be sporting more often now!

Do you ever get fancy with your nails?

  1. Gorgeous! Love those shades, I also really like how it's a bit more of a subtle fade between colours. I quite dislike 'ombre' ones that shift too much between each nail!

    Ahh, loving the ombre effect. Essie nailpolish names never fail to cheer me up by the way! What top coat did you use? It looks like a great formula, super shiny. Or is it just the nailpolish that's shiny?
