New Nails: Purple Ombre



Models Own Purple Passion / Illamasqua Jo'mina / Models Own Lilac Dream
Topshop Parma Violet / Models Own Utopia

I'm not really a fan of ombre hair but I'm totally loving ombre nails. Its such an easy way to make your nails look a little bit special. The only hard part is rummaging through all your nail polishes to find a good gradient of colour. I am also in love with this dia de los muertos style skull ring from Galibardy. They've got some fab rings in at the moment, I wish I could buy them all!

  1. These look awesome, I really love ombre nails especially in pinks and purples. I just wish I had a big enough collection to be able to do it! xx

  2. Turkish Delight looks like an amazing colour! I don't have enough nail polishes to make the gradient effect work, so instead I get 5 pastel coloured ones and make a rainbow instead :) Lots of effort but the result is so cute! x

  26. hi caroline, thank you so much for following me. much appreciated! i love this post, ombre nails are such a lovely way to showcase colours - the only thing i never commit to a series of colours! at best i think i have two shades of green, oops.

    the topshop nail varnish there is by far my favourite shade.
