Gone are the days of airbrushed ombré — the new incarnation is messy and imperfect, like this punchy design created by Creme at Yigal Azrouel's Cut25. "This is a loose, messy, hand-painted version of a usually softly gradated nail look done by airbrushing," she says. "It's incredibly easy to do — the messier the better! It's almost woven, very fabric-like."
