Recently, my friend Steph told me how she did her amazing ombre nails & gave me some great tips! Mine didn't turn out quite as well as hers do, but I'll share what I've learned :)
here's the look we're going for!
Start with a base coat of a light colour & let it dry.
(I definitely did mine before bed so they're a bit sheets-imprinted lol)
Choose a dark colour. I used two but you can use three colours for a smoother gradient.
Take a makeup sponge & rip off a piece to use as your "brush"
dab some nail polish onto your sponge
and then dab it on your nails in a thin coat!
CAREFUL NOT TO BE TOO HEAVY HANDED!
start by dabbing a very thin layer on & build from it so that the tips are the darkest.
do each of your nails the same way & don't worry too much about the mess!
they might be a bit textured at this point....
but a coat or two of clear top coat should cover up the texture!
and there you go! ombre nails!
it's pretty easy to get the look, try it out with different colours!
