Red Ombre

Last week I mentioned doing my nails to match a red dress. This is the other half of those nails. This took, oh, 5 minutes? Fastest nail art ever!


Ok so maybe calling it art is a bit of a stretch. I don’t know that I think nothing but an ombre is art. So I added studs. I’m going to pretend it counts :-p




  • Light red: Pure Ice – Siren
  • Red: OPI – All I Want For Christmas (is OPI)
  • Dark red: Revlon – Valentine
  • Darkest red: OPI – Visions of Love
  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black


The best part? I think all of these ended up being two coaters (mostly because I was careful). Enjoy!

  1. This is such a great mani!! The colors and design and execution are totally perfect! Congrats!

  2. Oh this is so lovely! I love that addition of the gem on each nail. 🙂

  3. Nice. I love the colours – it’s so simple and clean looking. Annoyingly enough, have you ever noticed how your simpler designs get the most attention? It’s always like that for me – I’ll spend two hours doing something totally intricate and then everyone loses their shit over something that took me 10 minutes!

    • I KNOW! well, for me its like divergent curves. If it takes under 20 minutes or over an hour and a half, people love it. If it is anywhere in the middle (most of my designs take between 45 min and an hour) people…like it, but don’t seem to care. It makes me growl.

      • Precisely! Or every now and then I’ll do something and think, “Oh, man, these are the nails that are going to set the blogging world on FIRE!” and then it’s like *crickets.* Or just one cricket.

      • believe me, i hear you. i can’t decide if i’m disappointed by it, or if it means I just have to acknowledge that my sense of “holy shit awesome” is slightly off-kilter!
