Mani Friday: Ombre

Happy Mani Friday! My ombre look this week sprung from indecision. I wanted to wear a purple but I couldn't choose which one, and I happened to have 5 different shades at my desk. So there you have it, purple ombre (also, I think I might own too many purple nail polishes).

What mani are you sportin' this weekend? Show & Tell in the comments!


Sidenote: I'm experimenting with new hand poses; what do you think? I don't know how I feel about this one.

I like the new hand pose!  Also really liked the one from last week with the bronze/silver mani! Smiley Very Happy

Sexy colors O_O

Still rocking the out-of-season but NHL playoff-appropriate Zoya Raven + Zoya Gilty.


I know the cuticles are bad.

And for the record, I love the purple ombre.  I've tended to do purple myself since I have way too many purple polishes myself!

Thanks ladies! Cute nails, Starletta! I was thinking those were Steelers colors, but then I read "NHL", lol. What team is that?


@drrragon - yup, I used a matte top coat. I thought it would make them more interesting Smiley Happy

They would be appropriate for the Steelers or the Pittsburgh Pirates as well, but it's time for my annual Pittsburgh Penguins playoff nails!  The guys get to have fun with playoff beards, so I always have fun with playoff nails.

@starletta - Wait, do ALL of the Pittsburgh teams have yellow and black as their team colors? I didn't know that! Sure makes it easy to show off your team spirit though, I have to do different colored nails depending on what playoff season it is! Smiley Happy

@candacebt- Yep, all of the Pittsburgh teams rock black and gold.  It's one of the many great things about the 'burgh.  It also makes showing love for my beloved hometown easy when I no longer live there.

Love the ombre mani!  I had a little time earlier, so I had the chance to do my nails before the weekend Smiley Happy

I love the purple ombré., I will try this myself this weekend...I too have many purples.  


(Reminds me of The know, the Superbowl champions--I'm from Baltimore and all this Steelers talk is too much ;-) lol)

@makeupobesessed I will refrain from addressing your stolen superbowl win from us 49ers this year and go on to say.. I agree! I love purple ombre too and have way too many! Smiley Wink 


Candace your ombre nail makes me want to take my polish off and do a whole new round of color! I wonder if I have enough green for an ombre effect- I certainly have enough purple and pinks!

I really like it! What is the color on your middle finger, the light purple one?

As for the hand pose its fine for nails where all fingers are the same, but for this one I can't see the color on your thumb Smiley Surprised Oops haha


~We are all beautiful~

Oh Diana!  Was not a steal at all, the 49 ers almost got away with that power outage and stole it from us, the momentum was way off after that but the ravens still managed to ill a win.  Now I'm routing for Jacobi Jones on Dancing with the stars!
