Ombré is the new black

Ombre Nails

Also known as gradient, the ombré technique has been a huge hit in beauty salons for almost a decade. Usually used to create a beach-like hair, with strands going from light brown to blonde, the effect has also been consistently applied on nails for the past couple of years – only with a wider color scope and a lot more glitter.

Shades of pink, transparent to brown, white to shimmery green… Adopted by A-listers such as Rihanna and Alexa Chung – big nail art lovers, by the way –, ombré has surpassed being a mere trend and is now a style on its own right.The effect is usually achieved with the help of a sponge: stripes in different tones overlap and are then dabbed on the nails two or three times.

As usual, Vanitee‘s own beauty artists are up, running & ready to add ombré to your repertoire next time you have your nails done. Pre-book an appointment on our app today!
