Guest BloggerMani Monday: Five Color Ombre Nail Tutorial

FacetsOfFall2 (1)ManicureMondays11

While ombre nails are a super simple way to add that little something extra to your manicure, chances are you don’t own 5 polishes that will work well to create the effect. But don’t worry – you can easily create this look with just 2 polishes and a paint brush!

In nail art, an ombre nail is one that transitions from shade to shade with each nail one full color. The key to creating this look is finding the right ratio of regular polish to white polish. I like to start out with a dark color and slowly add more and more white to produce a smooth color change over each nail.

step1

As a general rule, start out with your base color on either your pinky or your thumb. For the next closest nail color, mix one drop of white to a sizable drop of your dark base polish. I like to mix these on a paper plate for easy cleanup later on. Use a paintbrush to apply the polish to your nail. For each consecutive nail, slowly change the ratio of dark and white polish so that your final nail has the most white mixed into the base polish.
