Nail Trends: Ombre

Nail Trends: Ombre

[vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Hello everyone, in keeping with yesterday’s tone, we are keeping things bright today on our nail special, but a wee bit different. Two toned nails have been around for quite some time. To achieve a set of perfect ombre nails, you need a good nail artist like Harsha. But if you’re precise with application, you can achieve this look on your own too. I feel it’s also a bit like modern art, so it’s OK to colour out of the lines.

But before you get started, start off by cleaning them.

The basics:

It’s very important you make sure your nails are clean, buffed and filed before you start any nail tutorial. For me, Harsha, the nail artist at Imperial Salon prepped my nails Apricot Kernel Scrub, Potpourri Aqua Soak and Hand Butter. She also used sanitizers as well as a cuticle oil for healthy, strong nails. If you’re big on nail art at home, I suggest you buy basics like nail hardeners, cuticle cream and oils to make sure you do it right.

How To:

  1. Cover the top half of your nails with High Tea Tulip from Purples and Lilacs Collection.
  2. Feel free to do so in an angle, at a slant or any other way of your choice. Be concise with application to avoid the colour covering the entire nail.
  3. Now use a brush to colour the bottom half of your tips. You can use a complementing shade of mauve or purple too; we decided to with a shade of pink that had undertones of purple–Grapefruit cocktail from Pinks collections.
  4. Since this is kind of like shading like we did in school, you may want to make sure you use another coat of both nail paints to make sure the colour is even on all your tips.


Last word: This look is bright, and fun and is great for girls in their twenties. Soon to be 30, I sure would sport it over weekends!

About Bio Sculpture

One of the differential factors that make Bio Sculpture a touted brand is because it is the ONLY brand to have undergone an independent clinical trial and to have received a 5 star safety rating. The spa collection (can be used at home) has a variety of collections, and each of these pigments lasts for about 10 days (without fading). On the plus side, the spa collection contains botanicals, vitamins and anti-oxidants. With a highly trained staff, the Imperial Salon is a great place to try The Bio Sculpture Gel Range. The coating is flexible, protects and conditions your nails and lasts for about 3 weeks.  All nail polishes are toluene free, DBP and formaldehyde free.
