Autumn Ombré Nail Art

Happy Monday ladies!

I hope your week is going well! Mine sure is, we’re both (my bloke and I) off work all week, so we had a lazy morning, then went out to wander around some shops this afternoon. I found a nice, recently opened, hair & manicure supply shop which had some nice stock, so I’ll be going back there again soon! Shame that, as a blogger, I don’t qualify for the pro discount.

Autumn Ombré Nail Art-001


I’m reasonably sure that this isn’t a ‘real’ ombré nail art, since it’s different colours instead of shades of one colour. But, I was feeling inspired by our autumnal walk in the forest yesterday, and wanted to keep it simple 🙂


So this is a progression from the green leaves at the end of summer, to the rich, ruddy maroon of high Autumn.

Autumn Ombré Nail Art-002

The colours I used are all China Glaze, from the thumb to the little (pinky) finger :

I wore them all at 3 coats, so I’m not sure why I still had so much Visible Smile Line, but I guess it’s not the end of the world. They’re all smooth cremes other than Solar Power, which is shimmery. But it’s the only yellow i have, so like it or lump it 😉

    is that really your only bottle of yellow ???????

    • Truth ve told, I have a pastel by Butter London, but that wouldn’t have worked for this mani. And one by Models Own that’s so sheer, it doesn’t count, lol!

        oh my goodness! all those china glazes and no yellows? hahahaaa
        I make a point to buy yellows. It’ll be like a surprise WIN when I finally find a good one. But- I have two current faves right now and they’re both 2 coaters 🙂

    I hate yellow!!! Well, ok. It has it’s uses. But I’ve only ever bought one bottle of yellow polish, and I’m glad to see I’m not alone! I think I own like…3? bottles at this point. Giveaways and stuff. But still. And all of them are either shimmers or glow-in-the-dark
    Also, I love that green.

  4. Love how that green and yellow pop besides the reds!
