DIY: Ombre nails

8/20/2012

tutorial on ombre nails

Hi guys! I know I've been a little bit missing in action these days and I'm sorry about that but a recent loss in my family made me take a few days off the computer.

Now I feel ready to resume blogging and before I share with you my next outfit post, i just wanted to show you a nice nail design that I've been liking to do lately.
black nude and clear nailpolish
You need:
-colors of your choice
-clear topcoat
-sponge
-piece of plastic (or paper)
-cotton buds
-nail polish remover
apply a coat of nude nailpolish
 
 put a drop of black naipolish on a piece of plastic or paper
 use a sponde to dab the black nailpolish at the root of the nail
 use coton swab to remove the nailpolish on your skin
 
 finish off with a topcoat
Voila! You can also do it with different color combinations and why not add more colors to the design? I can picture this look in a gradient of deep blues or reds or any other colors that you have in different shades... Get creative!

Nonetheless, i have made a few mistakes while doing this :
-first off, for this particular color combination, I should never have done it on short nails cause it made them look even shorter…
-second thing, and this applies to any color combination, I should have mixed the two colors I chose to create a third one that would work as a bridge color between the two first and make the ombre effect smoother... 
 voila! diyed ombre nails
*here is another example of ombre nails that I did on my sister*
another example of ombre nails in red and orange

I hope you liked this ombre nail tutorial and also let me know if you want more beauty related posts in the future...
