Burberry Summer 2012 makeup collection Iconic Nudes includes five products, a limited edition compact for face and four new shades of the sheer lipsticks Lip Mist.

I really like this Sheer Nail Polish collection from American Apparel.  These nail polishes  are described as sheer, quick drying and long lasting. So I assume it should not be difficult to get the ombre-ish  effect as shown on the photo mess-free.
