It seems every week the internet is fusing two existing looks into an entirely new trend. This week ‘Colombré’ – that’s colour plus ombré, if that wasn’t already obvious – is the talk of the online town, jumping off the pages of Instagram and into your salon, stat.
This new take on rainbow hair is courtesy of Hollywood colourist Danny Moon, styling for Pravana, the colour brand who previously brought you the alluring Sand Art hair look. The Colombré trend is centred on the ombré effect utilising rainbow tones, meaning instead of lightening the bottom of your clients’ strands to blonde or a softer brunette – think teal or lilac instead.
Our shellac nails should remain shiny and chip-free for 14-to-21 days, if you take care of them responsibly. Don’t worry about your day to day activities: taking out keys, working on the computer and (light) cooking are no match for the combination of traditional nail polish and gel polish that is shellac. When your days fill up with chores and outdoor fun, remember these three rules of shellac-maintenance.
If you’re going to be washing dishes, scrubbing floors or gardening, you should reach for a pair of gloves to protect your nails and your delicate skin. Wearing gloves is especially important if you’ll be using any harsh detergents or chemicals such as bleach, which can cause the shellac to lift or chip at the edge of your nails.
