The 'ombre' effect has been the 'in thing' to do for the past year or so, firstly trending from fashion magazines and taking off every where else. If you don't already know what ombre/ombre-ing is, it's basically a graduation of colour, starting from dark to light, or light to dark, in the same tone of colours or completely different! From hair, to clothes and even extending to finger tips, the ombre effect didn't really appeal to me at first, but I have seriously grown to like it, LOVE it even! I haven't been daring enough to dye my locks as yet, but I gave it a go on my nails..

And instead of each nail a different colour, I've also really been liking the thumb and index finger painted the same colour, the middle and ring finger painted the same of another colour, and the pinky, on its own, painted yet another. I somehow feel this way style of ombre is slightly more sophisticated compared to the first photo's?!

Whatever the tones and shades, mix it up, have fun with it! I will definitely be experimenting a little more, with different colours, so expect more blog posts like this one! I thought these shades were perfect for the Autumn weather and I can't wait to wear them more often!
What is your take on the ombre effect? Have you tried it out in any way shape or form?! If not, will you be giving it a go?
