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.
Face Oil's are the new moisturizers ladies. It's now not only something you adorn your body with to try and get a nice tan but oils are now available that are changing our face's delicate skin for the better. Whether you're using Rodin olio lusso's Luxury Face Oil, Adara's Organic Coconut Oil or Shea Terra's Argan Face Oil all of these product's ingredients are rich in vital nutrients your skin needs needs to replenish and heal itself.
The latest brand to be added to our luxury shelves is Marula The Leakey Collection, which specializes in one key product, Marula Oil. This brand was created after the healing benefits of this oil were seen on cancer patients as well as the lives of women and children in rural East Africa. Marula Oil contains a higher level of antioxidants and Omega 9 than seen in argan or grape seed oil. This means your skin will experience maximum and long lasting moisture and protection against environmental stressors which leads to signs of premature aging. Marula Oil is suitable for all skin types and has a light, non greasy texture that makes using it a dream.
