ombre ole'!

Alright, so we've all seen the ombre look for a couple years now...... when I moved far far away from my home-girl-rockstar-hair-sista I had lots of grow-out time between color jobs, which equals like six inch roots. Then I went ombre. Which works fabulously because the whole idea is outgrowth. Awesome. And since I've been loving the locks I decided to take it on down to the fingernails.

Check it ladies: Ombre Nails
idea from here.

All you need are 4–5 shades of nail polish in the same color family (which is actually lots easier than you think, especially if you have a top-secret box full of fingernail polish under your bathroom sink). Two (or three) coats of each in progressive order and holla! You've got yourself some sweet nails, Ombre!

Excuse me while I have a post-Cinco de Mayo veggie egg roll with my man on lunch break. Lata dudes.
