nail polish in order (from 2nd pic): “nothing else metals” by essie, “play date” by essie, “luxurious” by ME by dermelect, “nice is nice” by essie and “to buy or not to buy” by essie.

it’s been a while since i’ve shared a mani on the blog! sorry!!! the ombre manicure has been done OVER and OVER but when i saw how many shades of lavender i had in my collection, i HAD to do it. i’m tempted to try it with all of my colors…ha ha.

    I love how this turned out! I really like how you did the colors randomly, giving it a fresh twist. The scary part is that with all of the nail polishes I’m hoarding errr I mean I have, I don’t have any of those colors!

    I think it turned out great! I haven’t done ombre nails before (I’m way too lazy/pick it off way too fast) but every time I see them I want them!

    Love how this turned out. I’ve never been much of a lavender fan, but the color is winning me over more and more. I love the pop of metallic. I need to get that color!
