Ombre Nails

My orange/red/pink polishes

Ombre Nails is a trend I've been meaning to try for a while now, not the multi-coloured single nail but 5 different coloured nails. I might try the single nail trend but will have to wait until I have the patience.

I knew I wanted to do something around red, preferably using my favourite OPI Big Apple Red...
Option #1 - Orange to Red

So I considered orange-red-maroon...
Option #2 - Pink to Red

And pink-red-maroon...

But I couldn't decide.

Option #3 - Pink to Red to Orange

So I decided to do both. My maroon polishes are icky anyway.

Pretty happy with how they turned out (ignore the mess of my middle finger). I think it's a trend that looks edgy yet subtle. Big Fan.

The Claw does show this trend best. Looking forward to seeing how they look in sunlight rather than camera flash too...

Big day tomorrow, first ever professional spray tan and I have an appointment to get my hair dyed blonder. My ombre fingers are crossed that it looks as good as I'm hoping for.


  1. Looks great! I might give this a go myself :)
    Don't worry about your spray tan, they've come a long way since the omper lomper days!

  2. Love the look! I'll jump on the bandwagon too next weekend I think!

  3. Wow, you've got loads of nail polishes in red! I like how you mixed up the colours btw, never thought of that.. Looks great!

  4. I love this!!!

    Looking forward to seeing hair / tan!

  5. I am looking forward to seeing your tan and your hair !!!!
