For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
This has definitely been a summer full of nail trends. Some bold, some daring, some involving far more work than the average person may desire. One look I've found myself pretty fond of is the Ombré look.
Ombré nails, also known as gradient nails, are two toned paint designs usually fading from a dark color to a complimenting dark color. The color combinations are endless. Matte, gloss and even glitter polish can be used to obtain an awesome ombré look.
The trick to creating the ombre is to apply the color closest to your cuticle all over the nail. Then you apply the second color. Using a foundation sponge or wedge, pat the nail so that the line of demarcation fades away and gives it the gradient feel. Repeat with as many colors as you wish. Make sure you're going from lighter color to darker of course. Apply a clear top coat to seal it all in.
There's more than one way to ombré. Take a look at the tutorial below that offers an even easier way to ombré your nails.
