I've wanted to try out an ombré manicure for a while, but the trick was choosing a color scheme to work with and somehow accumulating five different hues of that color polish. It's not surprising that I ended up choosing purple; along with blue, it's one of those polish colors that I think is wearable in its lightest and darkest incarnations, as well as every shade in between. 

Thanks to my Pinterest addiction (follow me!), I'm constantly finding new nail art ideas I want to try out. Take it from me, this is pretty much the easiest way to achieve an interesting, trendy manicure without having to fumble with a tiny paintbrush or place individual specks of glitter with tweezers (ugh).
