How To: Sunset Ombre Nails

How To Ombre Nails

Hello my lovely ladies! Today I have very special tutorial and I'm really excited to share with you that yesterday I made my first ever ombre nails! It started out as a joke but surprisingly it turned out really lovely so I decided to show you how I did it! It's really easy to make and because of the shades I chose it reminds me of sunset, which automatically puts me in great summer mood! <3 Hope you enjoy!

1. You will need: Two or three colors of nail polish, foundation sponge, scissors and a topcoat.

2. First, paint your nails white or a really pale pink shade. I chose to use Essie - Fiji because it is such a great quality and I know it won’t chip for days! Make sure you apply two coats because otherwise it could be a bit transparent and you won't get the same effect. Make sure you let your nails dry well before proceeding to the actual coloring!

3. While you wait the base color to completely dry, take a foundation sponge and cut it in down the size of your nails. Make sure that the surface is flat!

4. Then start applying a generous amount of each nail polish onto the sponge. You can use two or three shades depending on your preferences but I chose two because I really liked how these two shades compliment each other and felt like a third one will be too much.  I used I Pink I Can by Sally Hansen and “Lemon Meringue” by Models Own.

5. Now for the fun part - start gently padding the sponge along your nail until you get the desired effect. Note that you'll need to reapply nail polish onto the sponge for every single nail otherwise the colors won't be as vibrant and opaque!

6. You will have nail polish around the cuticles no matter how precisely you do everything, so you'll need to clean that up. Just dip a Q-tip in a little bit of nail polish remover and carefully start getting rid of the excess.

7. When you are finished with that apply topcoat over the nails polish. This will help even out the surface, plus your nails will be beautifully shiny! :) I love using “Mega Shine” by Sally Hansen.

8. Aaaand Voila! Now you have pretty ombre Sunset inspired nails! :))

  60. Thank you for visiting my blog--I love this tutorial because it's something I can easily do on both hands. Usually, I'm really bad at painting the right hand, but with a sponge, it should be a breeze, right?
