Five Shades of Green: Ombre Nails

Green polish seems to have become an unintentional theme here on the blog. I do  love my green polishes and last week I wanted green but had a lot of trouble choosing which shade to go for. I had a couple of them lined up on my desk and with a flash of inspiration decided to do a graded ombre on my nails.

I choose five complimentary shades of green. From light to dark:

Essie Fashion Playground /Rimmel Round and Round the Garden / Essie Fall in Line / Max Factor Aqua Marine / Essie Stylenomics

Green Ombre Nails (4)

I created an ombre look by applying the lightest shade to my pinky finger and going darker towards my thumb. Given the fact that these polishes aren’t even from the same brand, they work well together although the darkest shade would ideally have been just a tad lighter.

 I love the way this has turned out. So fun! Perfect for people who want something a little different, but do not have the patience for nail art.

    Great idea! I have loads of pink nail varnishes and this is perfect for those days when I can’t choose just one!

      Thanks! It works best with your favorite color, since you will have most polishes to choose from 🙂

    I really like it, too. It’s a fun way to use shades of a single color. Thanks for the idea!!

    I feel like I never look to grab a green polish. But on the rare occasion I do, I love it. Then I don’t do it again for another couple months!
