Nail Art Tutorial: Fall into Ombré with Julep

Ombré isn’t a new trend–we’ve been seeing it for years, on everything from clothing to nail art to hair. In my opinion, it’s not even a trend at all, it’s really a constant that just happens to be generating more buzz than usual lately. And it’s definitely not fading! Why?

Julep has shared a new ombre nail art tutorial that uses colors from their ‘Fall Into Ombre’ Welcome Box – FREE when you join Julep Maven.
