Ombre Nails for Christmas

I spotted this trend back in the Spring but never got a chance to try it out. Whilst looking for my next set of sparkly nails I was pondering over which colour to choose from my O.P.I Burlesque little teasers set when it hit me. I had the perfect selection to create an ombre look for Christmas!

Here are the colours I used from left to right:
  • Rising Star - Lustrous glimmering gold
  • Take the Stage - A warm spotlight shimmer
  • The Show Must Go On! - With this deep pink shimmer on your nails!
  • Ali's big Break - This glowing red shimmer breaks through in style

Here is the finished look in Blue Peter style 'One I made earlier' (The pictures don't do the colours any justice they're delicious)

My right hand - Starting with 'Rising Star' (I alternated the 'ombre' sequence on each hand)
My right hand - starting with 'Ali's Big Break'

I actually really like these colours together it reminds me off a sweet shop. As per usual I'm once again eager for them to chip so I can take them off and apply my next polish idea!

What do you think? Yay or nay to these nails?

  1. I love these colours (and the film!). I do love glittery polishes but rarely go for them as they're such a bugger to get off - you'll have to let me know how easily they come off with remover! x
