Ombre Nails

My boyfriend and I celebrated our third year anniversary earlier this month. He somewhat surprised me (he's kinda bad at keeping surprises secret) with a beautiful ring. It fades from red rubies to hot pink, light pink, and white sapphires. I love my ombre ring, which inspired me to create an ombre nail look.


This look fades from a hot pink/red color on my thumb to a light baby pink on my pinkie finger. This ombre look is great if you tend to purchase a lot of the same colors. I can't wait to try this look my purple and blue nail polishes.


 Sorry about the poor paint job. I totally lost track of time and was running late for a movie (we saw 30 Minutes or Less) so some nails got a little smudged.

  8. @Anonymous- Kiss on the chic is one of my favorite polishes! I don't remember exactly how many coats I used, but I want to say I probably used three?
