This is a step-by-step tutorial on how to apply ombre nails. It will show you how to properly apply the ombre design using a makeup sponge and use glitter polish to create the look.
The most important thing you need to get started with this nail art is the right tools. You will need a small makeup sponge, some clear base coat, one color of nail polish, and another color that is lighter than the first one. If you want to add glitter, then you will also need glitter nail polish or loose glitter powder.
You can buy all of these things at any drugstore or beauty supply store. I recommend getting a small 2-pack of makeup sponges for about $1. They are usually sold in the section of beauty products that also has cotton balls and Q-tips.
You should also have some rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover on hand for cleaning off any messes that might happen during this process.
If you’re looking for a new nail trend, ombre nails are perfect for you! Ombre nails are so beautiful and easy to do. They are a great way to show your creativity with colors, while being feminine and chic at the same time. It’s also a great way to add some color to your neutral outfits.
Here are some simple steps on how to apply ombre nails:
1. Apply a base coat. I like Sally Hansen Nail Growth Miracle because it helps my nails grow.
2. Apply two coats of Essi “Cute as a Button” (or any light pink nail polish).
3. Use three different shades of pink nail polish (one lighter than the other) and place 3-4 drops of each onto a piece of paper or aluminum foil. You can also use three different colors if you want something more fun. When using different colors, just make sure that they go well together.
4. Using a small paint brush (or toothpick), mix the three colors together in order to get an Ombre effect (where one color gradually blends into another). You can also use a sponge instead of a brush, but I find that it doesn’t give

Here is a DIY tutorial on how to get your very own Ombre Nails. First prep nails with a clear basecoat and let dry. Next apply the lightest polish all over the nail, I used Essie’s “Mint Candy Apple”. Then use a makeup sponge and place dots of the lighter color down first, then dots of the dark color, then again with the medium color.
Lightly dab the sponge onto the nail and repeat until you have all nails covered. Use a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover to clean up around your nails. Finally seal in your design with a clear topcoat and viola! You have an awesome ombre manicure! I hope you like this DIY, please be sure to subscribe for future tutorials and reviews.
Ombre nails are a huge trend for Spring and Summer. This nail art design is fun and easy to create with only two nail polish colors. All you will need is a light and dark nail polish color of your choice. I used Essie’s Bikini So Teeny as the light color and Essie’s Sexy Divide as the dark color.
Start off by applying one coat of the light nail polish on all of your nails. It should take two coats to achieve full coverage. Once the second coat has dried, apply the dark nail polish to the tips of your nails using a makeup sponge. It may take a few tries to get the right amount of polish on the sponge, but once you do it will be very easy to use.
Once you have finished applying the ombre effect, apply top coat to seal in your design. If any nail polish gets on your skin, wait for it to dry and then peel it off with tweezers. The end result should look something like in my picture above!
