In the warmer months I tend to paint more pictures and designs then I do in the colder months, not sure why this is but tonight I was painting my nails and decided on an ombre look, so I figured I would make a short tutorial out of it. I used a brighter colours so it showed up better on pictures but you can use any colours you like as long as you have a lighter and a darker shade to work with.
Light Base Colour - I used Essie Tart Deco
Darker Colour - For this I went for Essie Enuff is a Enuff
Sponge - Cosmetic sponges work well
Surface you can pour nail polish on - Here I used my art palette
Nail Polish remover and Q-tips for cleaning up the edges
Let this dry.
Take your sponge and bend it around your finger like in the picture above making it rounded and easier to use.
Use the same technique as the last step but start the sponging a bit higher up (closer to the edge). REPEAT this step a few times starting a bit higher up each time until you have achieved the look you want.
I sure aint an expert but I had fun doing my nails!!
Hope you like:)
