The summer heat is on! This warm weather calls for fun, fun, fun! Do you want to have a shining nails with fashion design and colors? This paper is to share one easy-make and beauty nail skill. That is ombre nails.
Before you start, make sure you have prepared everything you need. OK, let’s DIY this ombre nail step by step.
What you need: Two color nail polishes and a topcoat. You can choose colors that compliment or go bold and pick two that clash. Experiment with different combinations and see what works.
A sponge, a plastic sheet and toothpicks. I bought a big bathroom sponge and I just cut sections off when I need them. The sections don’t have to be perfectly cut, as long as one side is flat it will work. You can use absolutely any sponge you can find.
Step 1: Using the lighter colors on your nails first, wait them dry completely.
Step 2: On a flat surface, paint a generous amount of the colors right next to each other on to the plastic. Make sure they’re just about touching at the edges.
Step 3: Using a toothpick, swirl the two colors together in where they meet. The area where they mix will determine the length of the graduation. So if you want a long graduation, mixing a big section, Or you just can mix a tiny area for small fade.
Step 4: Take your sponge and dab it directly down on to the polish a few times.
Step 5: Dab the sponge directly down on to your nail. Keep dabbing lightly and moving it very slightly up and down your nail. (You can repeat this step as many times as you need to. Just make sure each layer is completely dry before sponging again otherwise you will start smudging the bottom layers and ruin the whole thing.)
Step 6: Add a topcoat. Or two or three! The sponging makes this mani very bumpy so you may need a couple of topcoats just to even out the surface.
Step 7: Clean up all the excess using a brush dipped in acetone or polish remover.
That’s all. So easy to make this beautiful ombre nails. Now, you can buy all the nail tools from this website www.tomtop.com and there are make discount of nail tools. Enjoy your time!
