Looking at the nails from fashion week it would appear that ombré is the new "in" term for gradient. The key being to have the transition to different shades of the same color happen seamlessly. Easier said than done for us mere mortals but I really like it, so thought I'd give it a go.

While most of the ombré nails I saw were done with earth tones, I wanted something a bit brighter, more spring like, so I chose to fade from green to yellow. I'd recently purchased China Glaze Sunshine Pop and thought thought it would be a perfect starting point. I covered all of my nails in it and let it dry almost completely. As far as yellows go, it's fairly nice, the texture is quite creamy and fairly opaque for a yellow, it did have a tendency to drag though and took three coats to get an even coverage. What I didn't like at all was the massive bubbling that took place.
|Pretty, but I don't like the "shelf" that the glitter caused and it needs a bit more something.|

So did you have any favorite looks from fashion week?
