How to Do Summer Ombre Nails
Ombre nails are based on the same technique used for the ombre hairstyle – a simple color gradation. Or, in other words, polishing with colors in transitional shades is combined and in this way, ombre nails are obtained.
The best thing about the ombre nail technique is that is excellent for both long and short nails, and it’s no surprise that it’s among the best nail trends this season.
Best Tools for Summer Ombre Nails
- Acetone for removing nail polish
- Nail base
- White nail polish or the lightest shade you have chosen for your ombre nails
- Nail polish sponge
- A darker shade of nail polish
- Some water
- Top nail polish
In order to achieve the best ombre effect on your nails, all you need to do is follow a few steps.
Do not forget that your excellent ombre nails need more practice.
There are two main methods for getting ombre nails: ombre nails with a sponge and glitter nails with the ombre technique.
- Choose colors and shades- When it comes to ombre nails, the main color of the nails should always be the lightest shade that you will use or a classic white polish. Paint all nails with a thin layer of the base color, wait for it to dry well, and paint them once more.
- Apply nail polish and nail base- add a thin layer of nail base. It will protect your nails, but it will also increase the durability of your nail polish. The color of your nails will last much longer.
- Ombre nails with the sponge technique- Use a small sponge, cut it to the size of your nails if it is too big so that it does not stain around the nails, and dip it in some water. This step is essential both so that the sponge does not absorb too much nail polish and that the nail polish that you will later apply does not dry too quickly. You only have to be careful that the sponge is not too wet.
