Ombre Nail Tutorial

Hey y'all! Aren't three day weekends glorious!? Saturday night after a great day of shopping, eating Lou Malnati's and going to see Epic in theaters J and I settled in to watch the Spurs game. While he intensely watched (I'm a Mavericks fan), I decided to try out Allison's nail tutorial from her YouTube channel: Amarixe. The ombre trend is hanging on for dear life and I love it! She used pinks and yellows for her ombre effect, but I decided to fade from dark blue to purple to white. I really love how the look turned out.

This set was made exclusively for Merle Norman back in 2011. It includes Hussy, Alpine Snow, Yoga-ta Get This Blue and a top coat. 

I used Alpine Snow and Yoga-ta Get This Blue for this look.

Final look.
Go check out her channel for a complete tutorial. Maybe try out a red, white and blue ombre in spirit of Memorial Day?
I would like to thank all those (past and present) who have served our country in order protect our freedoms. I am eternally grateful.
Be back soon.

  1. These turned out great! And I can't believe I missed that polish: Yoga-Ta Get This! Love that name - and sometimes I can't tell if I'm putting on the polish because of the name or the color :)
