nail art: pink ombre

This week's nail art is ombre! All you need are at least two nail polish colours. They do not need to be in different shades of the same colour. You can use any colour like fuschia and orange. 

Materials:
  • Top coat
  • Nail polish
  • Makeup sponge
It works pretty much the same way as the galaxy phone case tutorial, where you will use the sponge to do a bit of blending.

  1. I painted my nails with white first to bring out the colours, and also because some of my colours weren't very pigmented. 
  2. Paint your sponge with the colours you are going to use in succession, like what I did. 
  3. Dab it onto your nail. It doesn't matter if the colours didn't transfer fully. You can keep doing this step until you are satisfied. I gave mine about 2 or 3 coats of colours before I got my final result. Let the polish dry before proceeding with the next coat of colour, and remember to keep the polish on the sponge wet. 
  4. You don't have to wait for all the nail polish to dry before putting on your top coat. This will help to blend the colours more and give it a smoother finish!
I think my nails look very barbie-ish now.
