The Ombre Manicure

Ombre. n. A French term meaning "shaded." 
"...with colors graduating from light to dark"

This gradiation from one shade to another
is very in right now. 

How to do it :  Basically you use 2 or 3 colors.
Usually its your main color, black and white.
You mix up a darker version or lighter version
of your main color and paint each finger from light
to dark. Its fun, simple and cute : ) 

Or use 5 different shades of the same
color if you have lots of lets say blue 
polishes. Then you dont have to use
black & white. 

Great for any nail length !
