Ombre Hair? That’s So 2010. This Year, It’s All About Ombre Nails

Last year Hollywood had a love affair with the grown-out ombre hair trend. Everyone from Drew Barrymore and Ashley Simpson-Wentz to Rachel Bilson and Alexa Chung sported this look on the red carpet at some point. It seems though that the enthusiasm the style has faded (get it? Ha!), but there is a new color gradation fad on the horizon: ombre nails. We first spotted one of our fave vloggers, Miss Glamourazzi, doing a how-to video during the holidays on a Nutcracker-inspired purple mani, but now it would seem that the trend is starting to really take hold. Prime example: earlier today OnSugar blogger LesleyKat posted her tips on recreating a Valentine’s Day-themed nails. Minus the hearts (Lesley, what were you thinking?), it is so pretty—and certainly no easy feat. She used four, yup four, different types of pink polish to get this effect and even a makeup sponge to help blend. Even though I am pretty adept with lacquer, I am secretly hoping Sally Hansen comes out with Salon Effects ombre polish strips so I can partake in the look with just one simple foolproof step.
