Purple ombre nails with BLACK GLITTER!

Hey everyone! I have been busy the last few days and as a result haven't had the time to paint my nails nearly as much as I want to. Since I haven't done any nail art in a few days I thought I'd pull this purple ombre mani from the vault to show you guys!

I did these nails quite some time ago (as you can tell since they're long and round instead of stubby and square haha). I remember being too tired the night I did them to do any nail art but not wanting to just wear one color  They were super simple but I really liked wearing them! The only thing that bothered me was that my ring finger was a more red-toned purple than the rest, but it wasn't nearly as obvious in real life as it is in these pictures.

The colors I used, from lightest to darkest, are:
China Glaze Light as Air
OPI Planks a Lot
Essie Play Date
Sephora by OPI Domestic Goddess
OPI Funky Dunkey

The black and gold glitter on top (which I LOVE) is Fergie by Wet n' Wild Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night.

What do y'all think of these? I think they're a nice compromise between arting all over my nails and only painting them one color. I looove black glitter too AT ALL TIMES and I think it kinda ties the colors together nicely!

  3. That black glitter is BEAUTIFUL! This is such a cute mani! The only time I did an ombre` look like this (also purple!) I just used one colour and added more white to it for each finger :p

  4. I don't know if you can really call that "glitter"... but it sure is beautiful!!! It's like little coal snowflakes on your nails.

  5. Haha. For some reason I laughed really hard at the ring finger. Non-conformist ring finger refuses to be the right tone.
