Celeb Nails: Lauren Conrad

I’m not going to lie, I love me some LC. I was always Team Lauren on Laguna Beach and I have seen every episode of The Hills (twice). Beyond that, I just love Lauren’s style. It is always chic and classy so I was super excited to spot a very interesting looking manicure she was wearing recently. It’s sort of ombre nails with a slight twist. The colors vary more than your average ombre manicure so I just had to give it a try.

In my attempt to recreate the look I used China Glaze Pelican Gray, China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le, OPI You Don’t Know Jacques!, OPI Sapphire in the Snow and Borghese Mezzanotte Blue. For the most part my polish choices were spot on. The only one that didn’t quite match up was OPI You Don’t Know Jacques. I should have used a less muddy darker gray or perhaps a more purple leaning gray (like Nina Ultra Pro Never Glum Plum).

Regardless, I quite like the way it turned out and it was definitely fun to wear! I like that it’s an ombre manicure but the colors are more dramatic than just a normal gradient of very similar colors. Go LC! I’ll be paying more attention to her nails from now on.
