Ombre, two toned hair is so last summer, going into 2012 it's all about ombre nails. This trend allows you two different options to really make a statement. The first ombre nail look is when the color fades from light to dark on each individual nail. The shades can be from the same color family or totally opposite, the secret is the blend in the middle. The second look is when the color fades from one nail to the next. For this you need five different nail lacquers from the same color family but with different graduated shades from light to dark, you can even throw in a glitter finger for extra show.
Our latest arrival, The New Black, makes creating these looks super easy. Instead of investing your time, energy and money in multiple full size bottles that you're not sure go together you can purchase ready-to-wear ombre nail sets at wallet conscious prices. All of the shades offered are straight of the runways keeping your nails fashion forward at all times. Some of my favorite The New Black ombre nail polish sets are:
Black Ice - Glimmer Twins 2 Piece Set
Black is always cool, especially when you can have sparkly tips. This kit makes it easy to do two graduated shades on each nail.
Horizon - Ombre Nail Polish 5 Piece Set
For the other trend, I think this blue inspired set is gorgeous because of it's greyish-blue gradual transition.
I'm slightly obsessed with Sara Happ products and am literally dying of excitement when she comes out with a new Lip Scrub flavor. Sara has been listening to her obsessive-compulsive gloss appliers out there and has made her uber popular Lip Slip Balm into a Lip Slip Gloss that comes in a finger-free easy to apply tube. It's the same formulation, rich in nourishing ingredients of Jojoba and Macadamia Nut Oils, but with an added bonus of extra shine! We all like to have the option of a jar or a gloss and now you can collect them both. Keep one on your bed side table and one in your purse so you always have some lip moisture with you at all times.
