Green Ombre Nails The Supplies

Left to Right: Essie Grow Faster Base Coat // Julep Susie// Nails Inc. Haymarket // NYC Tudor City Teal
Julep Emilie // Forever 21 Green (old, but this color is similar) // Seche Vite Top Coat // Sephora by OPI Quick Dry Spray (I LOVE this product!)

I’ve been meaning to try this style of ombré manicure for a while and last Sunday I gave it a go. I finally accumulated enough different shades of green for this to work (side note: you guys, I have so many polishes in the mint green family- that’s how obsessed I am with that color!) There’s no technique involved here- I just painted each nail with a different shade of green. I feel like this is perfect for spring because it reminds me of green things growing!

    I’ve been wanting to try this myself but I don’t think I have enough of any shade yet! Your nails turned out beautifully!

    I ombred my nails just a few days ago, Nnenna! In almost the same colors as you did! Great minds! :)

    Hmm I don’t have enough green for this… maybe pink?

      I would be so pretty in pink- I might have to try that too!
