Your nails will be the talk of the town with this hot summer look.
What you need:
– nail polish remover
– base coat
– two shades of pink polish (one darker/one lighter)
– a white or neutral shade for the ombre
– top coat
1. Remove old polish and apply base coat. Give it at least 2 minutes to dry. A good base coat will protect your nails and help the new color adhere better.
2. Apply your pink polish in two coats, then let it dry completely. Make sure you have a good light source so you can see where you’re painting; otherwise you’ll get messy edges. Don’t forget to paint your thumbs! Let the polish dry for five minutes between coats, and don’t do any other activities while waiting—no texting or cooking! It’s called “dry time” for a reason. 😉
3. Dip a small brush into your lighter pink color, and carefully paint a thin line of polish on each nail, right below the tip. You might want to practice on another surface first to get comfortable with how much pressure to use on the brush, how thickly to apply the color, etc. The goal is to create a very subtle gradient effect from
I’m doing pink ombre nails, except instead of light pink to dark pink, it’s red to dark red! I think it looks really good. I’ll show you how to get the look, step by step.
First, take a little bit of nail polish remover on a cotton ball and wipe your nails with it. This cleans them and gets rid of any oils that might keep the polish from sticking.
Next, take your base color and paint your nails with it. That’s the color you want at the tips. I picked a bright pink that glitters a little.
Now for the ombre effect. Take your second color – mine is a darker pink – and paint the bottom third of each nail with it. Don’t worry about being neat; we’re going to blend this part together later anyway.
Next, take your third color – mine is a red – and do exactly what you did with the second color: paint one-third of each nail with it. This will be the part that’s closest to the cuticle.
Paint over everything again with the first color so you have an even coat on every nail. You can see how mine took on a gradient effect with three colors in it, but they’re
Summer is finally here, and you know what that means: it’s time to try out a new nail look! If you love pink but want to go bold this summer, then we have the perfect combination for you: pink ombre nails. By combining a light and dark shade of pink, you can get the hottest look of the season.
First, choose two shades of pink. We recommend Orly Nail Polish in Sweet Surrender (a light pink) and Essie Nail Polish in Bikini So Teeny (a darker pink).
Next, apply two coats of the lighter pink polish to all of your nails. Let dry completely.
Once dry, use blue painter’s tape to create stripes on each nail. Paint with the darker shade of polish, making sure not to overdo it. Too much polish will result in messy removal of the tape, so start with a small amount and add more if necessary.
Let dry completely before removing tape. Top with clear gloss and you’re ready for summer!
Summer is right around the corner, which means it’s time to switch up your nail game. Instead of going for a solid color, try an ombre effect. This trend has been seen on lips and eyeshadow, but it’s now a look for your nails as well.
The key to this manicure is starting with polish that goes from light to dark. The best way to do this is to get three or four different shades of the same color polish and apply each one in order from lightest to darkest.
If you want a bolder look, try adding glitter top coats. Also, feel free to use any color combination you like!
1. Start off with a base coat of clear nail polish. This will protect your nails from becoming stained by the bright pink color and will make sure the polish lasts.
2. Next, apply a bright neon pink polish, in a shade of your choice, to all of your nails. Make sure you apply two coats for full coverage.
3. Now it’s time to do the ombre! Take your second shade of pink polish, which is going to be a lighter shade than the one you used before. Dip your makeup sponge into the nail polish and dab it onto the tips of your nails. Make sure that you use a stippling motion so that the color doesn’t look streaky and uneven.
4. Once all of your nails are done, apply a top coat to seal in the design and protect it from chipping!
For this look, you will need:
* White polish
* Pink polish
* A makeup sponge
* Top coat
1. First, paint your nails white. Let it dry completely.
2. Once it’s dry, paint the pink polish on the sponge and dab it on the bottom half of each nail. The more you dab, the darker the color will be at the bottom of each nail. You can also try using two different shades of pink for a fun look!
3. Let your nails dry completely, then apply a top coat to keep them from chipping!
A perfect summer manicure starts with a great base. Apply two coats of Orly Bonder Basecoat to clean, filed nails and allow to dry for one minute. Next apply two coats of Essie Nail Color in Tart Deco, also allowing each coat to dry for one minute.
Using a makeup sponge, apply a small amount of Essie Nail Color in Penny Talk on the underside of the sponge. Dab the color onto the nail from the base up towards the middle of the nail, which is where it will be most visible, creating an ombre effect. Repeat until desired opacity is achieved. Finish with one coat of Essie Good To Go Topcoat.
