Cupcakes and Cashmere’s ‘Gilded Fade Manicure’ contributes to the widespread obsession with ombre nail art. The metallic shades blend into one another expertly, mimicking the style of a rainbow but with dark haunting shades.

Blogger Emily Schuman has teamed up with the Estee Lauder and Marie Nails brands to produce this posh manicure concept. She notes that the look is exceptionally appropriate for fall as it is sophisticated and warm.

The short clip breaks down the dual application process. Lighter gold shades are painted on as a base and are later embellished at the tips with dashes of a silver-hued or black nail lacquer. The fading in and out of the colors can be pulled off in a surprisingly short amount of time.
