I decided to try a gorgeous ombre manicure and here is the amazing result that I achieved when creating this look.
I was recently inspired to do an ombre maniure when I came across a blog post by Kristi from www.alligatortoe.com. I absolutely love her gorgeous blog and after reading this post I decided to give an Ombre Manicure a try for myself!
This look was a lot easier to create than I initially thought. I thought that I would have trouble creating the ombre effect and that it would be quite messy, but if you have the right tools it can be done quick and easy.
Step 1 – Start by putting your two nail polish colours on a piece of paper or any surface that you don’t mind getting dirty.
Step 2 – Using a sponge applicator (I used my eye shadow sponge applicator), dip the tip into the nail polish. Make sure that the colour you want by the tip of your nails is on the right side. I try to get the colour 50/50 on the tip to get an even ombre effect.
Step 3 – Now you will apply the polish to your nail. I find it best to use a dabbing effect to get the first layer on, making sure I get the ombre effect on.
Step 4- After the first layer has dried, you can apply your second layer to get a deeper colour and effect.
Step 5 – You can seal in your ombre look with a clear top coat if you want to.
