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.

#31DC2013 – Inspired by a Colour

Good evening!

What has everyone else got planned for this fine Saturday night? We’re going out for dinner, so I thought I’d better post this first, in case I fall asleep early on the sofa again, haha!

I guess I’m not the only person who picked their favourite (nail) colour for this prompt? Well, I love pink-leaning purple, and I’ve never done this type of mani before, so I went for it 🙂

I have a bit of a problem with the term ‘ombré’ for this mani, partly because I live in France, and I’ve only heard the word ‘ombré’ used in a literal sense, as ‘shadowed’, like if a window is shadowed by an overhanging tree. So I’ll have to ask the boyfriend if this is a misappropriation, or if it actually can mean this kind of colour progression 🙂 he’s likely to glaze over as soon as I explain it comes fomr a nail art technique, though… maybe a French reader could help me out?
