Ombre, relatively meaning ‘shaded’, has been around in many forms for a few years now. It has been seen on the catwalks of the likes of Alexander McQueen (see dress below); it was even the theme of Gwen Stefani’s wedding dress,also pictured below (a bit OTT if you ask me!), however, most of us are probably more aware of the ombre, or more commanly named ‘balayage’ hairstyle, as perfected by Rachel Bilson, below. Given it’s popularity in fashion, it was only a matter of time before it was extended to nails and I have to admit I love it! I’m not usually one for funky multi-coloured nails but having been introduced to the Ombre nail trend my a good friend of mine I have become slightly obsessed. It’s great fun and a great way of adding a pop of colour to an outfit, especially in the summer months.
Here’s a link to a good guideline of how to achieve Ombre nails, but beware, it is only recommended for a rainy lazy day where you have all the time in the world as it is time consuming.
Below are some of my favourite combinations as well as my own attempt (spot the difference).
Happy painting (or should I say sponging) 🙂
