We loved the foolproof technique and instant style update it gave to a monotone mani - stick to darker colours to avoid the rainbow effect, choosing two shades that compliment each other or your outfit.
HELLO! Fashion takes a look at how to recreate the ombre nail trend at home...
SCROLL BELOW FOR THE FULL HOW TO
1. Base coat
2. 2 nail polishes
3. A small sponge
4. Nail topcoat
1. Prep nails and paint on your base coat.
2. Apply one coat of the shade you wish to start with, without letting this dry.
3. Using your sponge, apply two thick lines to both polishes to the sponge and then blot over the tip of the nail, repeating until you have the desired ombre effect.
4. Finish with a colour-sealing topcoat
For a low-commitment alternative, try out the trend before painting with the Elegant Touch Press-on Nails in Ombre Merlot, £7.10.
