Ombré hair which features dark to light colour is extremely trendy at the moment.  Yours truly is not as trendy in the hair department, but I played around with some nail colours and came up with my takes on ombré nails – pink, blue and purple.

Pink Ombré Nails


Featuring Bourjois So Laque! Rose Lounge (yes, the one worn by Kate Middleton on her wedding day – which I wore on MY wedding day which was way before hers so I am indeed a trend-setter LOL), FACE OF AUSTRALIA Luxe Nail Enamel Cotton Candy*, FACE OF AUSTRALIA Luxe Nail Enamel Beauty Queen, Sally Hansen HD Digital and CoverGirl Continuous Color Midnight Mauve.

Pink ombré nails are right up my street!!!  Massive love for this!  But I am biased because pink is my favourite colour.

Blue Ombré Nails

Featuring Nicole by OPI Diva Into The Pool*, Rimmel London I Love Lasting Finish Azure, FACE OF AUSTRALIA Luxe Nail Enamel Ocean Villa*, China Glaze First Mate* and MUA Shade 1.

Ooooh, blue ombré nails turned out really well.  Sounds silly but it reminds me of the sea and crashing waves.  See, told you it was silly!!

Purple Ombré Nails

Featuring Primark Nail Polish Lilac, Mode Cosmetics Midsummer Dream, FACE OF AUSTRALIA Molten Metallics Amethyst*, FACE OF AUSTRALIA Luxe Private Jet* and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Pat On The Black.

My purple ombré nails need a bit of tweaking methinks.  Not too happy with the poor quality lilac polish I own.  Reminds me of Autumn for some reason.

Which one is your favourite ombré nails – pink, blue or purple?

    Why haven’t I seen the FOA Luxe range before? Love those colours! I think the blue mani is my favourite 🙂

    I have had a few questions about the L’oreal lash renew serum so I am hoping to look into that today. I like the double mascaras that add fibres too, I actually use the body shop one quite often so I will mention that. Thank you for the feed back.

    All the best,
    Voe.

      @Voe, Totally agree that the L’Oreal double mascaras are really good!

    Personally, I think it looks a little untidy, it might be more polished to have the tonal change on each individual nail rather than colouring each a different shade. Maybe using max. 3 colours on each? Thoughts?

      @madico, My nail polishing skills are very untidy!! I wish I was skilled to be able to do the tonal change…I have seen lovely photos of ombre nails done like that. Might try it one day 🙂
