ombre nails?

um, yes.

So, the ombre tresses trend is still going strong. Who would have thought that nails would be seeing a similar trend? Not I, said the fly. Leave it to the Parkmonchoo Fall 2011 show to debut a nude base with a dark, marbled tip. Fade into black anyone?

The look is supposed to be messy and decomposed. It’s easy to do yourself, too. Just paint the base in a nude-ish color (or any color you choose). Let dry. Then paint a *very* heavy layer of clear polish over it. Then, while the clear coat is still wet, take a heavy brush of magenta, black or some dark dalliance and stroke the brush this way and that from the tip to the middle of your nail. Let the paint smudge and land where it might. That’s the point. An organic positioning of paint.

Will you be trying the trend?
