How to: Ombre nails

Heya everyone,

How are you guys? Long time no speaky (nope? no black books fans??O.K. then :P)!
So, this post has been in the works for over a week now. I was questioning how I was going to go about it and when I would find the time to sit down and work on the nails and the pictures. Finally, I took the plunge last night and here are the results of my hard work ;)

p.s. you can use 2, 3 or 4 colours(even 5 if you want and you have the nail bed for it)... ;) 

Some colour ideas

Now, I thought I should also make a list of the colours I used as a reference.... (all colours are listed from top to bottom as seen on the nail)

1.  Orly "Pixy Styx", China Glaze "Peachy Keen", Chanel "June"& Model's Own "Lemon Meringue"  
2. Salome "No 29", China Glaze "Peachy Keen" & Essie "Watermelon" 
3. OPI "Ski Teal We Drop", OPI "Thanks a Wind million"& Essie "Mint Candy Apple" 
4. Essie "Lilacism" & Essie "Mint Candy Apple"
5. Barry M "Boots LE No 24"& Barry M "Strawberry I/C" 
6. Essie "Coral Reef" & Nails INC "Chelsea Square" 
7. Chanel "June", Nails INC "Copacabana" & Revlon "Pretty in Papaya"
8.  Essie "Watermelon"& Sally Hansen "Lucky Plum".

I wanted to keep this post short and sweet really however I would love you know whether you are planning on rocking the ombre nails and whether this post helped at all...!! ;)
