Twinsie Tuesday: Ombre Manicure

Welcome to another fabulous installment of Twinsie Tuesday! This week's theme is ombre manicure. Ombre is the French word for shadow, so for an ombre manicure you do polishes in the same color that advance in tone from light to dark, creating a gradient or shadow-like effect. For my ombre manicure, I opted to use one of my favorite polish colors: pastel green! I figured I'd have a large enough variety of this color to create a decent ombre effect and I'm really happy with how it turned out!




I've done an invididual post on all of the polishes I used for this mani except one, so you can click on most of the names below to be taken to that polish's post if there are any colors in particular that you'd like to learn more about. The polishes I used are:


Well, that about wraps it up for me today! Head on over to the other Twinsie Tuesday blogs for more ombre action!

    1. I like the softness these types of colors have too. Anything green with a bit of grime or a hint of pastel tends to grab my attention!
