Ombre nails - step by step

Posted by A small Cat at 12:06

Hi girls :)

Today I will show you step by step how you can easily do Ombre  nails yourself :)

Before we begin, make sure that we have everything we need.

What do we need :

Two Colours and Top Coat, sponge, film and'' something'' with the sharp end. You can choose and experiment with different colours of nail polish. I have chosen these beauties from Chanel :) any kind of sponge, bath may be, cut off a piece of the whole. The sections do not have to be perfect, as long as one side is flat, it is ok. We also going to need a plastic surface, I use the shirt for documents, but it can be even a bag, or any other plastic. As something sharp I  just picked hairpin but toothpicks are just as good :)

We have it all, now we can start :)

Step 1: First, we use the lighter of the two colours, paint the nails and wait until it is completely dry.

Step 2: On the flat surfaces of the plastic we put a generous amount of colour next to each other. It is important that they only touch the edges.

Step 3: Use the pointed end (mine is hairpin) gently combine the two colours together.

Step 4: Dip the sponge into this pattern.

Step 5: Print the sponge directly on the nail. Gently pushing it up and down. (You can repeat this step as many times as you need. Important that each layer is completely dry before the next sponge stamping, otherwise you can ruin everything.)

Step 6: Add a layer of top coat ! Sponge left'' lumps'', so you may need several layers in order to level the surface.

Step 7: We clean the excess nail polish.

And it's done :) Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did :)

Another good thing in buying and wearing trendy beaded jewelry is you do not want to spend thousands of greenbacks to have people who will appreciate your look and your image. Fashionable beaded jewelry like necklaces, earrings and bracelets are available in wide variety of styles and designs. You'll only spend one or two dollars to few hundred bucks depending on the kind of materials you select for your jewelry.
