Ombré Nails

Nailed It.

Nail Art has exploded, people are getting more and more creative with their nails. Prints, patterns and accent nails are a huge trend.  This simple ombré nail is super easy to recreate and unique to any colours you choose! 

First Step:
Choose the colours you want to use. If using light pastel colours like myself, then I suggest using a light white or cream colour first so the pastels pop. I used "Vanity Fair" by Essie as a base. 

Apply base coat, then a light colour before you begin.  

Then take a clean sponge, (can get these at any drugstore or dollar store)
Coat a line of the colours you have chosen to ombré, placing the dark one the bottom then the light colour on the top. Make sure you put a heavy coat on the sponge so it doesn't all get observed quickly. 

Once your sponge is ready, place the sponge on the nail and press down. Leaving the nail polish printed on the nail. To achieve a vibrant colour, repeat this step as you desire. 

Using a Q-tip and nail polish remover, clean up around the edges then apply your favourite top coat!

The final result should look like this! I hope you guys enjoy xo
