Over the weekend, I spotted an ombre cake that made my heart skip a beat.
But, since there are no weddings in my future, and even I don’t think I could pull off serving something like this at our next dinner party, I decided to re-purpose the concept for today’s Manicure.
For ease, I opted for a gradient manicure rather than a true ombre effect. I grabbed a few of my favorite taupe, gray and silver polishes and went to work. This is an oh-so-easy manicure to do yourself, and I found the finished look to be surprisingly glamorous.
Grab any hues you have on hand in complementary tones or take inspiration from my shades of choice: Jessica Goddess, Cheeky Monkey Hangover, Essie Glamour Purse and Deborah Lippmann Waking Up In Vegas, all topped with CND’s Super Shiny Topcoat.
