All about the Ombre

 Ombre (Gradient) Nails
I'm actually in love with the new Ombre nails! there all the craze for nail lovers at the moment.  Inspired by the 60's, 70's, and 80's ombre is the fad of dissolving shades from the nail base to the nail tip. You don't need to spend loads of money in a salon to achieve this look you can do it at home, all you need is:

.  Base coat either colour, clear or matt
.  2 pots of nail polish
.  A super shiny top coat
.  make up sponges or kitchen sponge
.  Cotton buds 

And those are just the basics ladies!  You can jazz up your nails with glitter, stick on's, nail art it's all about you. To achieve my Ombre nails I used:

.  Rimmel London (500 Disco ball)
.  Rimmel London 60 seconds (620 How do you lilac it?)
.  Rimmel London Pro (500 Peppermint)
.  Rimmel London Pro super wear (Ultra Shine Topcoat)
.  Cosmopolitan Perfect finish Make-up Sponges
.  Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish Remover

I also used a nail file and cotton buds to tidy around my nails for that perfect prep and finish.  For more info follow the link below and feel free to leave your comments on my ombre nails. Thank's for visiting. xx
