Fall Nail Trend Alert: The Ombre Effect
I’ve been thinking about doing “ombre” nails for a while now and, finally, when I opened the September issue of InStyle and saw the ombre idea in a spread on fall nail looks, I knew it was a sign that it was time to put the look to the test. Ombre is the term for a color look that fades from dark to light. You’ve probably seen ombre on dresses, tops and accessories since it was a big trend this past spring. I like the way it looks and I like it on my nails even more! The easiest way to achieve this look is to pick five nail polish shades in the same color family and have them set aside for your manicurist before she gets going on your mani. I learned my lesson the hard way after making her stop the treatment so I could run around and find the best shades. Everyone in the salon was buzzing about what I was doing. I’ve already received a lot of compliments although I’m sure some of you will think it’s a little out there! My next ombre nail look will fade from black to white, with shades of gray in between!
