L'Ombre Rouge

Ombre, or 'to shade,' is all the rage these days! It's on the runway.

On the red carpet.

 On our nails.

And even in our hair.

Obviously, I am hooked on this ombre trend.  What can I say?!

Here is my little rendition of Ombre nails, which by the way, is a lot harder than it looks.  Although the shades of red may look great in the bottle, it is difficult to find the perfect the perfect crescendo of red.  Admittedly, I'm still working on it.

First, start with inspiration:

Then use a 3x5 card and play around with your reds to make sure they are similar in shade.

Then line your preferred bottles in order and get to work!
