Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador, Madeline Poole, takes the latest fashion trends from the runway, to your nails. In time for festival season, her non-traditional ombre was developed for Monse‘s spring/summer 2017 NYFW show. Her inspiration for the look was the bold coloration of this season’s catwalks and the ombre-dyed hairstyles found on many chic New York women. How did Madeline create the look?
Poole first applied two coats of Sally Hansen Color Therapy in Auran’t You Relaxed before using a makeup sponge to lightly apply the line’s Robes and Rosé. Poole concentrated the color towards the middle of the nail and blended upward towards the free edge.
Tip: To create a smoother blend, Poole poured out a small puddle of Sally Hansen Color Therapy in Auran’t You Relaxed and applied a mixture of bright pink and darker pink (Robes and Rosé) to the center of the nail where the two colors meet.
Next Poole repeated this process with Sally Hansen Color Therapy in Teal Good, blending colors until she was satisfied with the transition. After allowing the nails to dry 5 minutes, she applied Sally Hansen Color Therapy Top Coat to further blend and seal colors together.
