Often, ombré nails go from the pointer of the nail toward the base. But for two shows this season– Jason Wu and Retrofête– the ombré looks were a bit more inspired.

For Jason Wu, editorial manicurist Jin Soon Choi picked a reverse ombré. “I informed [Wu] that we’ve done [ombré] from the suggestion,” says Choi, creator of the JINsoon Spas and JINsoon Nail Lacquer. “We haven’t seen [reverse ombré] at programs much, so we chose to do it a bit differently.” The style went from the base of the nail with a deep black cherry into nothing however a clear polish at the top, with the polishes combined into each other utilizing a little sponge. Choi adds that this look extends the nail. Ombré “can be boyish if you do from the idea,” she states. “But this one is a more lengthened look, so extremely soft and feminine.”
