NOTD – Cath Kidston ombre rose

NOTD – Cath Kidston ombre rose

by on July 13, 2017 · 14 comments

Today’s NOTD is inspired by Cath Kidston. I love her designs and if I could afford it would kit my kitchen out in all her lovely prints. I’ve been wanting to do ombre nails for awhile but I had to build up my collection to do so and I realised the other day that I definitely have enough to play with!

So from left to right I used all Barry M: Spring Green, Strawberry Ice Cream, Bright Pink, Shocking Pink, and Raspberry.

I used three coats on each with the exception of Strawberry Ice Cream which needed 4 coats. I have very ridgy nails on both my ring fingers and if I don’t use several coats with the lighter creme finish nail polishes it creates a stripey effect. I’m loving the Shocking Pink which to me is more the a rose shade. I added the Spring Green at the last minute and I’m glad I did it’s so bright and happy.

So what say you ladies yay or nay?

Strawberry Ice Cream is SO gorgeous! 4 coats is a bit much though.

I know but it could just be my stupid ridgy nails that are the problem!

I love this mani! I think a more minty green would have went down nice as well :)

I agree but I don’t have one if you can believe it! I did think about using Model’s Own Grace Green but it looked a bit dull. Thanks for the suggestion! x

Hey Stacie – I’m glad you’ve seen this, it’s not as good as your awesome nail art though! xoxo

Definitely yayyyy!!!

What a lovely combination! I’m not into nail art in general (sometimes too tacky, can’t pull it off) but this style is so pretty and fun! Oh and it also justifies having a lot of different nail polishes. [See, mother?] lol

Aww thanks hun – yes it does justify having lots of polishes. I explained to Jamie over and over again that you can’t do ombre nails unless you have the right colours. I think he just rolled his eyes at me! :D
