Ombre Nails

Over Easter break, I discovered a fun new nail  decorating technique. I decided to give it a try and add a bit of  my own creative, glitzy, flare. You apply the polish by dipping a makeup sponge into water and then you dab it on your nail to create an Ombre effect. My nails were already painted  a solid color “Ole Caliente” which is a shade of coral/red by Essie. So, I decided to try it on one nail. I haven’t quite perfected the whole Ombre look yet, but I wanted to share with you  a preview of  a new form of nail art that can be done at home and it is easy. I will be trying this again very soon with different colors in hopes that it turns out more Ombre-y.

Step by step:
Dip sponge into water… don’t completely squeeze out the water
Brush different shades of nail polish directly on to the tip of the sponge
Blot on paper towel
Lightly Press  the sponge onto  your nail

Sprinkle with a few pinches of fine glitter for a glitzy finish
Top with a clear coat

OOH La La!!
