So You Want Ombre Nails? Here’s How To Do Them:
You will need:
– A base coat, top coat, and white and pink nail polish
– Scotch tape
– A small, flat paint brush.
Step 1: Apply your base coat and let it dry for about 5 minutes. Don’t wait longer than that because then the nail polish will start to get sticky and hard to work with.
Step 2: Apply two coats of white nail polish to your nails.
Step 3: Take a scotch tape and cut it into small rectangles, about 4 cm long. The width should be about half of the width of your finger nail, or slightly less. If you want to make sure that you don’t go over the edge when painting on the pink color, you can put a little bit of scotch tape along the edge of your nails as well. This way you can remove it after you have painted on the pink color and instantly have a clean line! I didn’t use this method though because I didn’t have any scotch tape at home so I just went free hand with the pink color but if you’re not very good at staying within lines like me, then I would recommend using some sc

It’s time to get our ombre on! (And by ombre, I mean the French term for shading.)
Ombre nails are a popular trend where your nails gradually fade from one color to another. Sounds hard, right? Well, it’s actually quite easy. Let me show you step-by-step how it’s done.
To create this look, you only need three things: polish remover, tape and two colors of nail polish. I went with a classic pink and white ombre look but it can be done in any two colors (and even multiple colors).
Step 1: Remove all previous nail polish from your nails. If you already have a base coat on, remove that too.
So you want ombre nails and you have no idea how to do them yourself? Well I am here to show you that it is not as hard as you may think.
It is important to note that when doing ombre nails, there are two different techniques you can go about using. One technique uses a makeup sponge and the other uses a brush. I will be demonstrating both techniques so that you can decide which one suits your fancy.
For this tutorial I will be doing pink and white ombre nails. You can use any colors of your choosing for this technique, but if you are new to DIY nail art I would stick with light colors until you get the hang of it!
Have you been dying to get those cool ombre nails? Have no fear, we can help you! Follow these easy step-by-step instructions and you will be rocking ombre nails in no time.
What You Will Need:
* Nail polish remover
* A nail buffer
* Cotton balls or a lint free cloth
* A base coat of your choice (we used “Sugar Daddy” by Essie)
Step 1: Remove any chipped nail polish from previous manicures with nail polish remover and cotton balls.
Step 2: Buff your nails to remove any shine and to create a smooth surface for the polish to adhere to. Don’t forget to buff the underside of your nails too!
Step 3: Apply a base coat to each nail. We like using Essie’s “Sugar Daddy” because it is sheer enough that you can see if you have any uneven spots before applying the color. The base coat also protects your nails from staining while wearing darker colored polishes.
If you’re a manicure maven, then you’ve probably been hearing a lot about ombre nails recently. If you have no idea what ombre means and would like to know more, here’s your guide! We’ll describe exactly what ombre nails are, how they got started and give you a step-by-step tutorial on how you can create the look at home.
What are Ombre Nails?
The word “ombre” comes from the French word for “shaded” or “shading.” In terms of hair and clothing, it has come to mean a color gradient where one color fades into another. Ombre nails follow the same concept – usually shading from light to dark colors, but sometimes dark to light as well. The effect is very sophisticated, but still very trendy. Two popular color combinations include pink to white and blue to white.
How Did Ombre Nails Get Started?
A few years ago, celebrities such as Katy Perry helped make dip-dyed hair popular by sporting bright colors at the tips of their long locks. Soon after that trend caught on, manicurists began incorporating the look into nail
Ombre nails are pretty much the coolest thing to happen to manicures since the invention of nail polish. They’re also a little tricky, which is why we never see them on the average woman. So, I decided to make it a little easier by breaking down how to get the look into 4 simple steps.
Step 1: Gather your tools
• A small paint brush (or a makeup sponge)
• White polish (I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Whirlwind White”)
• 3 shades of pink polish (I used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in “Cotton Candy” and “Fuzzy Coat” and Essie in “Mod Squad”)
• A top coat (I used Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat) and base coat (if you want, I didn’t use one)
Step 2: Paint your nails white and let them dry
This is important; if you don’t let them dry completely, your colors won’t blend correctly. I recommend using two coats of white polish for a nice opaque finish. You
