|Sunset Inspired Nails|
How amazing is the weather at the moment? Winter has finally left the building and it now truly feels as if summer is on its way at long last. I know I always harp on about how much I prefer autumn and winter fashion to spring and summer, but even I am craving the warmth and sunshine now.
Inspired by the gorgeous sunset I saw the other night, I fancied doing something a bit different with my nail polish choice for the weekend. Sunset ombre effect nails! I went through my varnish collection and selected 5 colours, which could replicate a pretty British sunset. I decided to go for the warmer tones of a sunset - yellows, pinks and corals as opposed to the more tropical pinks, purples and blues.
I've decided to use a different brand for each nail, and have chosen a Barry M, Essie, Fearne Cotton, Bourjois and Mavala. Here are my colours:
|Barry M Textured Effect in Station Road|
|Bourjois No Chips in Number 4502|
|Fearne in Coral|
|Mavala in Beirut|
|Essie in Tart Deco|
Then I just applied the colours as they would appear chronologically during sunset - the bright yellow of the sun, fading into a soft orange, into a pinky coral, into a darker coral and finally a deeper red. I think the effect is really pretty and I might try out a tropical sunset theme next week, using my beloved lilacs, purples and pinks.
What do you think of the final look? Is it something you would try? Enjoy x
