So I've been obsessing about nail art ever since I joined Instagram and followed "Thenailartstory". They post pictures of amazing nail art all over the world.I've tried recreating them all and recently, Shub from Dimpled fairy diary (visit her page HERE ), posted a picture of a gold and black ombre nail art and I've been wanting to try it out since! I've done many ombre nail art looks before and because its much easier and time saving than water marble nails, I decided to show you guys how to get the look.
You can even you tube "Ombre nails" and you'll find many ways as to how its done, I learned to create this look from Youtube.
Let's get started...
You will need:
Black nail polish
A metallic nail polish, preferably gold or silver, or you can even use a colored metallic shade to add a pop of color.
A shiny top coat
A sponge- the thinner, the better.
1) Paint your nails black first and let it dry.Then pour out a little of the gold polish onto any flat container.(I was lazy and used the post-it stack lying on my dressing table).
6)Once your nails are dry, paint over it with a clear nail polish so that it evens out the surface of your nail. Give it 2 coats and leave to dry.
You can try this look with many different colors and even go up to 3 colors.Start with a transparent and use a jewel tone on the tips, or even a blue fade to green!
Hope you guys found this helpful!
