Today we bring to you this Ombre manicure. You don’t need an appointment with the nail tech to get this manicure, trust me, it’s easily doable at home.
Ombre in French is ‘faded’, and this design is a creation of a basic gradient. The process involves the gradual blending of colours of one hue or different shades together in one nail. You can get his look by following one simple rule – move from a darker shade to a lighter shade or vice-versa from the top of the nail to the tip nail.
Things you will need:
White Nail Polish
Dark Peach Polish
Light Peach Nail Polish
Acetone/Nail Polish Remover
Matte Nail Polish
Nail stickers ( optional)
Start off with a base polish to prevent your nails from staining.
Next, apply two coats of the lighter white nail polish. A white base helps colours pop even more. So if you want your manicure to look vibrant and bright, ensure you apply a white polish! Now apply liquid palisade or glue over the cuticle area to ease the cleaning process.
Take a clean cosmetic sponge, measure it on the nail and paint the ombre (dark & light peach polish) colours directly onto the sponge either horizontally. Remember to add enough nail paint, so the sponge covers your entire nail.
Now dab the sponge lightly over the nail. Ensure you are covering the entire surface of the nail. Repeat this step a couple of times, until the colours have blended uniformly.
