Nail addicts represent!!
This video is hilarious!!!!!
Also... can just about ANYONE have a duet with Kanye West these days?! Boy, that guy is a fucking song whore! Soon enough there might be more songs ft. Kanye West than actual Kanye West songs... :P (seriously, type "ft. Kanye West" on youtube, it's RIDICULOUS!!)
Anyhow, let's go on to some nail trends shall we!!! You thought ombré was a hair trend only?! Think again! Here's the How To, courtesy of Seventeen Magazine!
How-To: Start with shaped and buffed nails. Clean nails thoroughly with acetone polish remover. Do not use a base coat, as the blending for the ombré look will not work as well over a base coat. Work with one nail at a time so polish is wet enough to blend. Starting at the cuticle area, apply a polish in a thick layer, using a dabbing technique, about 1/3 of the way up the nail. Using a lighter shade, immediately polish, starting where the darker color ends, and "drag" the end of the darker polish up the nail to the end with the lighter color to create an ombré "fade" (so the colors look like they fade into each other). Continue this application with all nails. Seal nails with a quick dry top coat.
Sounds easy enough, no? To see pictures of what it looks like, click the Seventeen Magazine link above, it's the second picture in the slideshow.
