Taking a cue from amazing hair trends, nail designs are crossing over into the world of ombre nails and delicate color blends. We know how “extra” winter can get on our hands, so we love how nail fashion has just stepped up its game to new styles and fashionable winter looks. Ombre nails are the perfect option to chase away the winter blues and keep you feeling warm and they allow you to play with your favorite colors while keeping it classy. It’s the perfect alternative to more traditional looks which, to us, have simply had their day already. Keep it real with our favorite ombre looks.
The thing about doing your nails in this style is that it isn’t something that you can do in a hurry. Simply trying to paint your nails with two different colors, just like that, isn’t going to work out that well. With that being said, it’s not impossible to do it yourself at home. Or, you could get the look done at your favorite nail salon.
To paint ombre nail designs, you’re going to want to pick two colors that you like best. Whether they “match” or not doesn’t matter. You’ll need sponges, plastic, and toothpicks. Use the lighter color of the two that you’ve chosen and paint each nail. Let them dry.
Put the two colors on the plastic sheet. Using the toothpicks, swirl the colors in the middle. You can choose the kind of color gradient you like best. Take the sponge and dab it in the nail polish and then on your nail. Don’t let it cover the whole nail. You can dab as many times as you like before polish dries to ensure that you get the exact color you like. If that’s too much work for you, consider having a professional do it instead. But until then take a look at our ombre nails collection and get inspired!
