Dang! Hillsie Lauren Conrad has been switching up her beauty game like CRAZY as of late, and we are (very joyously) going along for the ride! Just last week Lauren Conrad dyed her bright blonde tips punky shades of pink, purple, blue, and green, and yesterday she debuted a lighter, "more wearable version" of blue ombre hair. Her barely there periwinkle strands not only matched her summery, color-blocked Rebecca Minkoff dress (currently on sale for $195!), but ALSO rivaled her uh-mazing blue gradation manicure, which mixes up nail art in a subtly creative way.
We've seen celebs sporting ombre hair since last summer, but the overgrown brown to blonde roots look is being swapped for brighter and bolder colors for 2011—even Snooki is sporting hot pink hair these days! While we're super sad to say good-bye to LC's bold tips *sniff sniff*, we LOVE that she took this trend a step further with her light blue to navy gradation nails. Matching hair with nails is a trend that MTV Style is a pretty major proponent of, but the best part about this nail trend is that it's SO DIY-friendly! Peep the image below for four gradation nail looks you can re-create in a snap. It's a fun, easy look that adds a little somethin'-somethin' to any outfit without feeling monochrome—and a way to play with as much color as possible. And nothing is more summery than as many colors as possible!
