Ombre Nails

ombre nails diy

Today's nails feature a design I've been wanting to try out for a long time, ombre! To create this look I used 17 Sweet Kisses, Topshop Parma Violet & Rimmel Aqua Cool much more appropriate for Summertime than the ridiculous amounts of rain puring down outside today.

Although this design is really easy to create (all you need are your polishes, water & a makeup sponge) the clean up afterwards took forever. As you can see in the middle photograph you end up with quite a mess which isn't the easiest to clean up so you have to be patient with that. I decided for once I'd show you my finished left hand instead of the right as this time around to my surprise it actually looked nicer!
I'm not going to do my usual step-by-step guide because to be honest you'd be better off following the detailed one over on The Beauty Department, which is the same one I used (loosely). Even though they took up a large amount of my afternoon I really like this look and am excited to try it out with some different colours.
