A few easy steps to create a subtle ombre nail effect.
Step 1: Things You Need
- Cosmetic Sponge
- Clear Base Coat - "First Base base coat" by Essie
- Base Color & Lighter Ombre Color - "Bubble Bath" by OPI
- Darker Ombre Color - Designer Series "Classic" by OPI
- Quick Dry Top Coat "Good To Go" by Essie
Clean Up - Remove the excess polish by using polish remover & a Q-Tip to clean around the edges.
Add 1 stripe of your darker color and 1 stripe of your base color to the cosmetic sponge.
Once nail polish is on the cosmetic sponge you're ready to apply your ombre to your nails!
Roll the sponge onto your nail with medium pressure.
Carefully lift off the sponge from your nail. Sometimes a 2nd application is required when using the lighter shades.
After you're done with your ombre a little clean is required.
Take a q-tip and dip it in your polish remover to clean up the excess polish.
Apply 1 coat of your dry fast top coat & Voilla! A subtle ombre nail effect.
