Ombre nails

Posted by Buls on 5:54 PM in , , , ,

I try some nail art every week but for the past 2 weeks I have not done anything. This weekend I decided to try something complicated, absolutely new and exciting- ombre nails. 'Ombre' means 'shaded'. It means multi coloured with colours graduating from light to dark (or vice versa).
The technique is actually quite simple. Take 2 colors... any 2 colors. I used pink Colorbar and purple Inglot nail paint. Put a few drops of each colour on a plastic... even a polythene will do. Place them next to each other. Take a wet sponge (I used a make up sponge)... dip them in the colour such that both colours come onto it. Dab them on the nails. Ensure that one colour is on top and another on the bottom on each nail. I had to do it 3 times and got the nail paint around my nails. Once it is dry, apply a top coat. I used the Inglot gel top coat. The top coat will make it look even.
Now take a cotton bud, dip it in acetone and clean up around the nails. Tada.... ombre nails are done.

The only difference is that I did not paint my nails first. Actually, I did but used the purple nail paint which is much darker and the pink was not visible. You can skip the bottom coat.
