nail art: flirty ombre

16 April 2014

sometimes simple is best, and today's nails are just that: simple. however, that does NOT mean that they are ugly or plain or even boring!



having just had a newborn, and trying to keep up with a crazy little toddler (i swear he gets cheekier by the day...yikes!), i don't have a ton of time to myself anymore. and if i'm being honest? all i want to do is sleep when i do get a few precious moments alone. haha! but the other evening after Bronx had gone to bed, i wanted to do my nails, and knew i didn't have a whole bunch of time before Tinley woke up, so i grabbed a handful of my pink/peach polishes and a nail plate.


i wanted a more flirty spring look, which is why i went for pink hues (who doesn't love pink?!), creating a fun ombre look. then i threw in the cute flowers on my ring fingers as an accent, and to help bring out a more "spring" feel!

here's the roundup of what i used:


• sinful colors: soul mate (#945)
• new york color: french white tip (#134)
• sally hansen: coral reef (#405)
• china glaze: flip flop fantasy (#873)
• love, charlotte (via charlotte russe): i can't find the name, but i think the number is #11375LPK
• nail color (via forever21): peachy cheeks
• new york color: extra shiny top coat (#271)
• nail plate: konad m20



i always forget how fast and easy the nail plates are. i definitely love that they dry instantly after i stamp the design on, making it easy for me to add the top coat after. <<a HUGE plus for a busy mom on the go!


*what nail color do you tend to use or gravitate towards this spring? me=pink/coral/peach! i'm a girly girl through and through. haha
