Hello beautiful people and happy Friday!
Since we are in the middle of summer, I thought it would be so nice to do a bright summer manicure. I decided to go with pink since I had five varying nail polish colors in the pink color palette. If you only have two colors in the same color palette don’t be afraid to mix a couple drops of the darker nail polish with one of the lighter to get an in-between color on a sheet of paper. Then repeat this with two drops of the lighter color and one drop of the darker to get a variety of shades in the same color palette. I did this to tone down the dark mauve shade of my middle finger so it could look more cohesive with the other shades. Today’s look is a pink ombre dream of my own creation.
I used Essie-Poppy Art Pink (*similar) on my pinky nail, Essie – Let It Glow* on my ring finger, Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear – Mauve Over* on my middle finger, Nicole by OPI – Great Minds Pink Alike pointer finger, and Essie – Berried Treasures* thumb.

I must say there is something about having a fun manicure that makes you smile. I found myself writing a post, responding to an emailing, or texting a friend back and noticing my colorful nails. I never would have had the guts to wear this to my corporate office especially since I would not want to risk streaking documents with nail polish. Yay work from home perks!
I hope this post can inspire you to add a little bit of fun to your day. It really is about the small moments of gratitude right now. Would you ever wear an ombre manicure?
