Ombre Nails

At the moment I am LOVING ombre hair and nails! It gets me very excited for summer and has a very sunny/coachella/hippy feel to it.

If anyone saw Lauren Conrads dip dyed pink hair recently thats the kind of look I am currently in love with.

Recently I came across a tutorial for ombre nails and I had to try it out. I am a complete nail newbie, and also a terrible clutz, yet the tutorial was unbelievably easy and took me about 5 minutes to master! I went for a pinky/purple look.

Firstly I got all my items together, for my look I used Barry M Bright Pink 279, Ciate Nail Polish 0711, a clear nail polish for my top coat (one that i've had for yonks), and finally a make up sponge.

I painted all my nails in one coat of Barry M Bright Pink. Once this had dried I applied a line of Ciate Nail Polish 0711 to the tip of the make up sponge and dabbed it onto paper to remove the excess. Then I dabbed the sponge onto the tip of my nails to create a tie dye effect. Once this had dried I applied a top coat of clear nail polish to blend the colours.

This was the finished look. I am really pleased with them and it was so easy to do! I hope you enjoy and find this useful :).

Lots of love,
Charlotte x
