Day 25: Inspired by a Fashion

7:45 PM Laura 9 Comments

So, I'm going to go ahead and admit that I've been getting lazy with my inspiration because I'm kinda busy and it's hard to do nail art every day! But I'm tryyying so you love me anyway right?

Forgive me! Meow?

Anyway, so the trend I chose to draw inspiration from is ombre. Which is French and therefore probably has some fancy pronunciation, but in my head I keep saying "ohm-brrhhhhh" which is kind of a hard sound to express in letters. But I think it's actually "om-bray."

It basically refers to fading. Like so:

 So of course I decided to do it in blue. That's kind of my go-to color scheme, I really should branch out more. But not today!

From thumb to pinky, I used: OPI I Vant to be A-Lone Star, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue Away, H&M Deep Sea, Ulta Blue Streak, OPI Roadhouse Blues


sun (sorry, this is after tipwear and I tried to patch it up for you guys)





So I think it's kinda cool. Maybe not the most exciting nail art ever, but I'll try to get back into the cooler stuff. Would you believe that a few days ago, I didn't even have time to change my polish! *gasp* Quelle horreur! I was so tired of it after the second day.

Anyway, I want to know: what fashion trend would you have chosen? How would you have done it in mani form?


  1. I love to see ombre nails! Months ago I tried it a few times with pink, but it never worked out for me and now a few weeks ago I did it from black to light grey! Still don't know if I should post it, but I did like it! :)

    So yes, I do love this easy nail art thing! :) I only did the challenge for a few days, because I saw it wasn't that easy, so I have no idea what my fashion inspiration would be xD

  2. I probably would have done this! I've actually done blue ombre nails and I really liked it! :)

  3. I really have no idea what I would have done-I'm not into fashion so don't really know the trends!

  4. Totally loving this mani. I'm a sucker for blues.

  5. Blues are always pretty! I like your version of ombre and I absolutely love that picture of Puss in Boots :)

  6. I love those colors together!

  7. You have a blue addiction! :-p


  8. @LimitedAddictionNails: Of course you should post it! Ombre nails are great.

    @Fingers: Yeah, I really only picked this one because I had seen people do it before and I couldn't think of anything else!!

    @Let's Get Nailed: I love Shrek. I feel like such a goofus (yes, that is goof + doofus) saying that but it's true!

    @Vintage: Addiction? What addiction? ;)

  9. I am big on OPI Road House Blues. Funny - when I first started reading nail blogs - blues were pretty somber in my nail stash - a major quiet corner - Now I have some great ones that work with my skin tone and I honestly can say I am growing in my love for blue polishes. When I first started to read blogs - I thought way too many of you all were into blues & greens for my taste! You all have helped me grow - but I still love my fuchsias/magentas and REDS!!!
