Ombre is back this spring and we came up with the easiest way to create the perfect Ombre Manicure! All you need is- two of your favorite nail polish shades, a sponge, and a top coat! Here's how: Step 1: Apply two coats of your base polish and let it dry completely. We used our Nail Polish in 'Coral'.
Step 2: Grab a makeup sponge and your second color. Use your base coat to paint a stripe along the bottom of the sponge. Using your second color (we chose 'Flirty Fuchsia') paint another stripe directly over the base color.
Step 3: Stamp the nail polish onto the nails, making sure the darker color is applied to the bottom of the nail for a seamless ombre effect. Blend well! If you want a more saturated effect, apply more polish to the sponge and stamp the nails again. Make sure the polish is blended well.
Step 4: Clean up any nail polish that may have ended up on your skin with a Nail Polish Remover Pad. Apply a coat of clear polish to bring the colors together for the perfect Spring mani!
