Hot Pink + Ombre DIY

This weekend I opted for a little neon nail art. Since I couldn't decide on a color I went for a hot pink ombre. Ombre is actually one of the easiest nail arts I have done, all you need is a light base color, a few accent shades and a cosmetic sponge. 
Step 1: Paint nails with a light colored base. I opted for OPI Alpine Snow. 
Choose 3 accent colors, from left to right OPI Miami Beet, Ate Berries in the Canaries, Elephantastic Pink
Paint colors from dark to light in a row on a paper plate and blend where colors meet.
Dip sponge onto polish and then onto nail. Repeat until color reaches opacity desired. 
Clean up edges with nail polish remover and paint 2 coats of clear to help smooth texture and add shine. 
OMBRE nails.

This weekend we headed to wine country. We walked around cute little shops in St. Helena, ate lunch at the delicious Fremont Diner and stopped by my favorite winery, Frog's Leap, for a tasting. 

There is something I love about lounging around on a warm afternoon drinking rosé with friends and feeling completely carefree. Rosé is honestly my summer beverage of choice, it just makes me feel giddy, also its pink so what's not to love. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
