How To Get Ombre Nails - Black Nail Polish Trend

Try This Super Easy Fall Nail Trick

>> Spotted backstage at the Parkmoonchoo Fall 2011 show, this inky ombre manicure is a fresh way to wear dark nail polish this season — and getting the look couldn't be easier. You'll need three nail polishes: an opaque nude color, a super-dark hue, and a clear topcoat. Start by painting nails with the pale hue, and let dry completely. Next, paint a very thick layer of clear topcoat over the nude color. While the topcoat is still wet — and working one nail at a time — use short strokes and a heavily-loaded brush to dab the dark color just along the tip of the nail. It's all about creating a painterly effect here, so be sure to lay it on thick and don't worry about being too precise; the two polishes should run together to create a marbled effect. Let nails dry completely, clean up any mistakes around the nail with nail polish remover, and finish with another layer of clear topcoat.
