Wanna learn how to paint your nails ombre? Ombre – yes, it’s still all the rage. The ombre trend that seem to start with hair color has now spread like wild fire to everything from t-shirts, birthday cakes and well – NAILS!
How to Paint Your Nails Ombre
Here’s the supplies you’ll need to get started with the ombre nails.
- 2 color polishes and a topcoat
- Pick 2 nail polish colors that compliment or that clash – whatever fits your style. I personally love the 2 pinks in the photos.
- A make-up sponge
- Dollar tree has these and the quality is just the same of the ones I purchased at Target.
- A plastic sheet
- Saran Wrap works just fine.
- Nail polish remover
First paint your nails the lightest of your 2 nail polish colors.
Next, lay down the plastic wrap and pour a small puddle of each of your two nail colors right next to each other.
Using the toothpick mix the center of the two nail polish colors together to create a gradient (hence ombre nails!). Make sure not to mix the 2 nail colors totally,
Wet the make-up sponge and squeeze the water out. Take the sponge and dab the gradient nail polish mixture.
Dab the sponge onto your painted nails creating the ombre on your nails.
Place a few layers of the top coat onto your nails. The top coat will help smooth out the bumps that the sponge may of left.
Place some nail polish remover onto your q-tip and clean up all of the excess nail polish around the cuticles.
Enjoy your pretty ombre nails!
