The latest trend to hit the nail industry by storm is ombre nails. Here are some of our favourite ombre nail looks.
Navy and Black
This stunning nail art consists of a deep blue and black shade working together. To recreate, start by painting your nails a dark blue. Paint a lighter blue nail polish on to a sponge and gently dab at the tip to recreate the ombre style. Finish by painting the tips in black for this cool contrast.
