The Fashion Magazine 'Ombre Outline' manicure is a new take on the ever-popular shaded trend. Using the ombre on both the outline and the middle of the nail, this tutorial shows readers how to get the most cutting-edge version of the style.

Using three different nail polishes, this may not be the easiest look to achieve. Provided that a reader has the right varnishes in several shades already, however, the effect itself is easy to achieve. To get the gradually changing appearance of the hues, the tutorial recommends the use of a triangular makeup sponge to slightly smudge and pick up some of the polish.

Marvelously offbeat while still remaining feminine, this nail fad is an up-to-date version of the ever-popular ombre look that's been dominating the past few seasons. Stats for Bordered Gradual Nails Trending: Older & Average
