Pastel Ombre Nails

Well a Happy New Year to you! I've spent this year so far in a bit of a January-blues-induced huff, to be honest, so thought a simple way to bring myself out of this slump would be to get myself some cheery nails. Why not, eh!

I've wanted to try an ombre effect on my nails for a while so found this tutorial, grabbed some summery pastel colours and set to work. I applied a lilac base, let it dry, then painted pink and blue stripes on a clean make up sponge and dabbed on my nails. In hindsight, I probably should have used a pink base then graduated lilac to blue, but overall it's not too bad for a first attempt, I reckon. It has certainly helped to lift my mood!

Have you given ombre nails a try? Which colour combos work for you?

My Nails:


  1. Pretty! I love the colour combination. I tried doing ombre nails twice before, but I can never get a nice gradient. :( Gonna have a go at it again soon.

  2. Gorgeous nails, I love the colours x

  3. Your nails look absolutely amazing! I can never master the ombre nail art design, it just ends up looking a mess, also adore those colours :)
