Ombre Nails


And here I thought I was so creative and original! I’ve since seen this idea on another blog, as well as in a magazine [or so I hear…I haven’t seen the magazine myself yet] But in both places, the ombre was done pink-to-orange [which I love] so I will continue to think of myself as original and creative with my blue-to-green nails. This look brings me back to that time when I was six years old, and finally allowed to wear nail polish, so I painted each nail a different color. Doesn’t this look like a more grown-up, sophisticated version of that childhood moment? [Am I alone in that memory? I feel as though it is a rite-of-passage for every girl; A self-initiation, of sorts, into the wonderful, colorful world of nail polish.] To me, it’s what summer is all about: exploring your inner child and letting your hair down [theoretically, of course. If you’re living local than you know the heat in these parts has not made wearing your hair down even an option lately]. And if you make subtle enough changes nail to nail, dark pink to light pink for example, it can even be an office friendly way to celebrate summer.
