A lot of people have been asking me how I got pretty ombre nails. This is a blog that around how to get ombre nails and how to get them perfect.
First you need to prep your nails by filing
Then you paint your nails with a base coat
Next is the color of you choice, I tend to use two coats of this color
Then you need to put glitter on your nails, leave some room by your skin so it can look like a gradient
Then you need to put white on the tip of the nail, I usually do 3 coats, so it can be bolder and brighter looking
Finally, you need top coat.
Ombre is all the rage right now, and for good reason. It is so chic, so edgy and definitely eye catching in a non-offensive way.
I am all about the whole ombre look, but I find it difficult to find advice on how to get a perfect ombre nail that doesn’t look cheap or too dark. Here are some tips I have learned over the years to achieve the best ombre nails possible:
First of all, you want to start with a base coat as well as a white coat. You can also use another base color besides white. You should use two coats of white or your base color to make sure your nails are fully covered and white/base color looks solid.
Once that is dry, you want to apply two coats of your lighter colored polish (the color closest to your cuticles). Make sure you only apply this on the top half of your nail so it will blend in with the darker color. When these nails dry, apply another coat of the light shade on top so when it blends in with the darker shade it will not be streaky!
After that dries you can take a sponge and put some dots of both colors onto it. Start from the bottom and

You will need:
1. Base Coat (Optional)
2. White nail polish in a shade that works with your skin tone. I used OPI!!
3. Pink or coral nail polish in a similar shade as your lips for a natural effect. I used China Glaze!!
4. A Makeup Sponge
5. Top Coat
Before you start, make sure to apply a base coat first. This will protect your nails from the colour and prevent them from staining.
Apply a layer of white polish about half way up your nails. I used OPI Alpine Snow.
Using a makeup sponge, paint on some pink polish over the top of the white polish. I used Essie Romper Room.
Sponge on a second layer, making sure they’re not too thick. You don’t want it to look like you have pink tips and white nails. You want the colour to look soft and ombre-like.
Add another layer if necessary, but be careful not to over do it or the colour will be too thick and won’t dry well!
Finish it off with a top coat to seal in your design and smooth out any bumps or imperfections that may have occurred. I used Seche Vite fast dry top coat because it dries quickly and is chip resistant.
