I Tried It: Ombré Nail Polish Trend

Ombre Nail Polish Trend in Pink

After Nicole guest posted about Ombré Nails - I have been wanting to try the trend! I decided upon going with a pink color scheme and I set out to put together the most fabulous combination of colors! However after looking through my whole collection (all 52 bottles!) and talking with Katy about my current selections I discovered I need to make one last trip to Target in order to get the correct spectrum of light to dark colors. What I ended up with is the finished product above! I love the look of this - it's so different and super fun! The colors I used are as follows:
My selections for pink ombre nail polish
shades from left to right: OPI Bubble Bath, Sinful Colors Glass Pink (my purchase from Target), OPI Arose at Dawn Broke by Noon [probably my favorite color ever] Sally Hansen Baby Doll, Confetti in Get The Party Started (found at CVS)
Ombre Pink Nails

So what do you guys think? I am totally in love - the next color scheme I want to try is blue. Or I was thinking about trying this Lauren Conrad twist and going from baby pink to RED:
Lauren Conrad's Ombre Nails Pink to Red

How fabulous! Thanks Nicole for a new and exciting suggestion! If you guys try either of Nicole's or Katy's nail suggestions send them me (bedazzlesafterdark@gmail.com) I'd love to feature them on the blog! xoxo
