Happy Sunday!

I love the look of ombre anything – ombre hair styles, ombre clothing and definitely ombre nails! Ombre nail art was one of the very first techniques I learned to do. Although it takes practice to make the look entirely seamless, even a beginner can get a fantastic look. If you missed my OMBRE nail tutorial, you can see how I create these nails by using a makeup sponge HERE.

Today I was having a look at my Essie fall and winter 2013 collections (see swatches HERE) and realised how fantastic the bluey/green toned polishes from these two collections looked together (Essie Vested Interest from the fall collection and Essie Mind Your Mittens and Parka Perfect from the Winter collection). I decided I wanted to use these colors together in some nail art and knew they would be perfect to create a winter ombre look.

I then thought it would be fun to play with some nail studs I got from Claire’s and designed my accent nail to complement the look. I designed the pattern on paper first and then put it on my nails.
