Ombre and Gradient-Fall Nail Polish Trend

I know nail art is huge right now. With the post-recession economy still suffering, more and more people are looking to fill their time and keep their wallet full by expressing their fashion senses through the tips of their fingers.  In fact, there are blogs wholly dedicated to the art of nail painting!

Although I lack both the skills and time to foray into nail art, that doesn't mean I can't admire from afar (and print out the images for my talented manicurist to mimic).

Here are some of my favorite nail art.  Particularly, I am fascinated with ombre and gradient designs.  They're simple but the dichotomy in balancing the two perfect colors just nails it!
