Sometime in the past few years, I became obsessed with painting my nails. I have a ridiculous amount of polish in an overflowing shoe box, some of which I should probably get rid of. One of the handful of fashion-type blogs I read, Refinery 29, recently featured the ombre nail trend; I decided to try it out. In hindsight, if I'd chosen a bit of a darker color to start with (second finger color), it would have come out better. Perhaps next time. /being girly.
