So my nail polish started chipping away and needed a big pick me up. Since I have some time off from work (and my nails won't get ruined) this week I thought why not try something new. I really was just going to paint them white and then I saw some ombré nail designs on YouTube. I looked through my nail colours and thought what I have not used in a while GREEN. Here is what I came out with a well as the products I used.
What you need:
2 colours in the same family one dark one light
Cotton swabs and
nail polish remover
Step1: apply clear/base coat to protect an prime your nails- I used Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in 100 invisible
Step2: apply white nail polish - I used NYC 134 French white tip (had to apply like 3 coats because it is so thin)
Step3: paint the bright green onto a small sponge and dab onto nails 1/2 way down
Step4: paint darker shimmery green onto sponge and dab onto the tip of your nail covering any spots left from the brighter green
Step4: before everything dries apply your clear coat to blend and smooth out your ombré design
Step5: remove any excess nail polish on the skin and cuticles with cotton swabs
You are done!!!
