DIY Ombre Nails

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Girls, you can never go wrong with fun and fabulous nails – try getting these ombré nails to match the colourful summer spirit. You won’t believe how simple it is until you try it!

What you will need:

  • Sponge
  • Toothpicks
  • Plastic Sheet
  • Base and top coat
  • 2 Nail Polishes (pick complementary colours, or go for the bold ones)

Step 1:

Apply the base coat and wait for it to dry. Next, paint your nails with the lightest shade of the two nail polishes and wait for it to completely dry.

Step 2:

Pour out a few drops of both colours onto the plastic – make sure that they are just about touching at the edges.

Using a toothpick to swirl the two colours together at the centre.

Tip: If you want a slide fade,  just mix a tiny bit together but if you are aiming for a bigger graduation of the colors, mix bigger sections.

Step 3:

Pat the sponge onto the smudge and lightly dab it onto your nails and wait for them to dry.

Any sponge will do – we used a bathroom sponge and cut it into tiny cubes.

Step 4:

Finish off with the top coat – you might need to apply more than one layer as this is a very bumpy manicure.

Clean up your nail surroundings and you are ready to go!

Have fun and remember to tell us how it turns out.
