If you read CF regularly, chances are you are pretty familiar with ombre hair and clothing. Long maxi dresses in graduated colors and two-tone hair have been seen all over college campuses, so let's discuss the hottest new trend in ombre: fingernail polish.

If you are uninspired by your monochrome fingernails at the end of summer, the ombre look is a bold way to spice them up. The manicure consists of five different colored fingernail polishes - each a progression of the same shade from light to dark.

Lauren Conrad in particular has made ombre fingernails a buzzing topic around the internet, but are they a look you would consider painting on your own fingertips? While most college girls can't afford to buy five different bottles of nail polish in only slightly-different tones, you can create this look for less by mixing a dark tone with increasing amounts of white polish.
