Hey you! How was your weekend? I totally forgot about Cinco de Mayo this year. I know! I had plans for cute DIYs and a nail tutorial. At least I'll be ready for 2014! ;) This weekend was rainy, and my only venture out was to get my eyebrows professionally "done." Turns out, it was a huge waste of money, because I've been doing everything I'm supposed to with my brows anyway. I haven't waxed my brows in years, preferring instead to have them threaded, as the last time I waxed I had an allergic reaction. The same thing happened this time, and I looked crazy. I had a blogger event I wanted to attend, but cancelled once I saw Crazy Swollen And Bumpy Face. Instead, I headed home and painted my nails a sparkly peach. Speaking of nails, I'm sharing these Easy Ombre Tips. If you want to sort of fake the ombre effect very subtly, check these out. Enjoy!

- 2 similar polishes
- base and clear top coat
T E C H N I Q U E
Paint a base coat and allow to dry.
Paint a coat or two of the base coat and allow to dry. It should be the darker of the two shades.
Paint the tips of the nail the lightest color and allow to dry.
I find it easiest to hold the brush and slowly rotate my nail to paint the tips straight as possible.
Repeat if needed.
Seal with a top coat.T I P S
- I was feeling minty the day I took these pics, but feel free to use whatever two colors you like.
- Holding the brush still while rotating the nail is the easiest way to ensure a straight line.
What color is on your nails today?
