Metallic ombre nails, a how to guide
Before you start doing your own metallic ombre nails at home, French nails blogger Julie says that you should have some things nearby. You will need:
· White nail polish
· 2 metallic nail polishes
· A makeup sponge
· Clear top coat
1. Apply the white base
The first thing you need to do is to apply your white base coat. The reason this is used is to enhance the metallic effect of the other nail polishes. If you want a perfect finish you can do two coats. It’s up to you.
2. Cover with tape
You will then use the tape to cover the area around your nail bed. This is to make sure that you won’t also paint your skin and ruin the look. You can also use scotch tape and even Vaseline and then clean it. It has the same effect
3. The metallic nail polishes
The main step is to cover your sponge with the desired color and apply it to your nail. You can do it a strip of color at the time to make sure the ombre effect is visible. While the polish is wet, make sure to pat the color with the sponge to get the desired effect.
4. The last step
The last step is to apply a clear top coat after the metallic nail polishes have dried. This will seal the deal and prevent your nail art from chipping.
