DIY Trend: Ombre

April 2017

Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador Madeline Poole’s job is to take the latest fashion trends from the runway, to your nails. This month, her recommendation is Ombre.

Madeline developed this vibrant nail-look for Monsé’s spring/summer 2017 NYFW show. Her inspiration for the look were the bold colors from this season’s catwalks, and the ombre-dyed hairstyles of the stylish women on New York City’s sidewalks.  

Want to get the look yourself? Our hack for Madeline’s Ombre mani is simple to achieve at home with no special tools required, just a regular makeup sponge. Featuring Color Therapy in Auran’t You Relaxed, Teal Good and Robes & Rosé , this take on Ombre is the perfect pop of color for any summer outfit. Thanks to Color Therapy’s patented argan oil formula, you’ll have healthier-looking nails too.
