Nail Tutorial: Glittery Purple Ombre Nails For Spring

Here is a fun nail tutorial to go along with the spring inspired eye shadows look I posted on youtube last night. This nail tutorial is soooo easy to do and trust me you will get lots of complements on this look. I had clients ask me, where did you get your nails done? I love your nails, and when I tell them I did this at home their reaction is like OMG!! Can you show me how? So, today I will share my simple secret on how to create this look. This look is so simple you can do this with any color!

products used:

Orly Nail Defense With Protein

Nicole By OPI: Light a Candle

Sephora by OPI: It’s Bouquet with me

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat .5 fl oz (It really dries fast!!)

NOTD: Sephora By OPI’s Under My Trench Coat

Okay. . . I am a sucker for trends at times and this one I could not resist. I received an email from Who What Wear and they were talking about the taupe nail trend. The polished featured was of course by the house of Chanel and I love Chanel!! I was intrigued because I was already on a hunt for a neutral nail color to wear for work anyway. In there article they talked about how:

“Kate Beckinsale and Gwenyth Paltrow each proved that this lacquer does indeed add a luxe finish to red-carpet style when they accented their fancy frocks with toasty nails for a sophisticated evening look. Additionally, Dree Hemingway attested to the go-anywhere-ness of this shroomy shade when she took her nails straight off the runway (she walked at Chanel) and paired them with her glamorous Fendi leather-and-cropped-fur ensemble. Finally, songstress Lily Allen not only rocked the stage as performer at Chanel’s spring show, but also ushered in this brand new hue with a white shirt and nubby knits, affirming this beloved polish is equally as elegant with daytime wear.”

The nail polished mention for this trend was Chanel’s Le Vernis Nail Colour 505 Particuliere  for $23. Indeed and beauty color, but I did not want to spend $23 on a nail polish at this time, so I decided to check out Sephora to see if they have something similar and they did! The color that I found was a Sephora by OPI nail polish called “Under My Trench Coat“. This color is very pretty with it a hidden shimmer in the polish and when applied in 2 coats, I love it!! I have been wearing this color all weekend and people have been giving me compliments on it too! So, if you are looking for an alternative definitely check this color out!

NOTD: China Glaze Retro Diva Collection (Stroll Nail Color)

[ReviewAZON asin=”B002IUTO6Q” display=”inlinepost”]

I am loving this new color from China Glaze’s Retro Diva collection!! It available online at amazon for sure and Sally Beauty Supply too! I first came across this collection in my Nails magazine subscription and when I saw it I just had to check it out. So, I was at my local sally beauty supply store to purchase some lashes and then I just remember. . .  Check out the new collection of China Glaze and o my suprise they had the collection out on display. So I decided to purchase my favorites which was  stroll and Let’s Groove. Stroll is like a dark black red color with a lot of shimmer. So pretty.  Let’s groove is more of a dark purple color which I can’t wait to put on tonight so that you can see how that one looks too. If anyone was looking to purchase these colors from this collection I  hope that this helps you out!!

I love adding the black detailing to my thumb nail with Maybelline Express Finish Advanced Wear Anti-Chip Color, Onyx Rush 895, and I have a feeling this may turn into a nail art project because I also picked up some jewels to decorate my nails too! So, if that happens, stayed tuned for a tutorial for sure 🙂

NOTD: Finger Paints’ Art Dealer Teal-er

Ever since I had decided to grow my natural nails long (I mean without acrylic nails) I have become nail polished obsessed! I am not kidding I was just going through my growing nail polish collection and it has grown from just 20 fun shades to over 50 fabulous colors for any occasion. Well, I was going through my collection of polish and I came across Finger Paints nail polish called Art dealer teal-er and !I was thinking this would be a fun color to wear over the weekend. It’s fun & summery looking, and totally reminds me of the Caribbean for sure!  So I decided to give it a try since I have never used it yet. If you watch my youtube videos I purchased this color in my April haul video when sally beauty supply was running their buy 2 get 1 free promo and I believe that promo is still going on. I also decided to give the Seche Vite dry fast top coat a try too and let me tell you it is awesome!! It literally drys your nail in minutes!! But here is the look.

NOTD: China Glaze’s Strawberry Fields

Lately I have been so nail crazed it is unreal. I have never cared too much about how my nails looks until I started watching youtube tutorials. If you have watched them before you may notice many gurus showing nail designs and the latest on nail color trend. I was so impressed that I started to grow my nails out in order to decorate them and make them look beautiful again.

Ever since then, I have been so crazed about nail color and nail art that I literally polish them 1-2 times per week! I am not kidding. It is just so much fun emulated the seasons colors on my nails and toes that I can not help myself. lately, my new nail color find for today comes from one of my new favorites, China Glaze nail polish.  The color I chose for today is a fun and spring look is  China Glaze Nail Lacquer with Hardeners in Strawberry fields from their summer days collection:
