Beauty Pick Me Up - Ombre Nails

Are you tired of the same manicure again and again? The same reds and pinks, the same white french tip. Or maybe you're the type that just can't decide what color you want to paint your fingers and spend way too much time trying to pick one out at the salon.

Well here's a little manicure pick-me-up that's fun, easy to do and will guarantee to turn some heads! Ombre nails is the latest thing in nail trends and any girl with a nail polish collection (so ... all of us ... ) can do this at home, or just ask your fave salon to give it a try!

Just find 5 differing shades of a color, making sure that the gradient from each shade to the next only differs by one shade, no more than two.

Paint each nail a different consecutive shade from lightest to darkest.

Apply a top coat for extra shine and to prevent chipping and you've got yourself a pretty, ombre manicure!
