Nails: Tropical Ombre effect

As you know i am a Youtube addict, which comes in handy when you want to learn new nail art! 

Thanks to Amarixe i've managed to do a really easy Ombre effect on my nails :)

You will need:

  • Base coat
  • White / cream polish
  • 3 x colours in a gradiant (i went for Sinful Yellow called Unicorn, Boots Natural range Orange usure of the name, and Collection's Neon Art)
  • Make up sponge
  • Topcoat - i used my favourite one which is Nails inc quick dry
  • Tape
First things first you need to tape around all your nails as this can be a messy job!

Next, paint the base coat and then the white or cream polish all over, this is important if you are doing light colours as your natural nail colour would show through otherwise.
Then leave to dry for a while....

Paint your polish onto the sponge in the order you want on your nail..

Then dab dab dab on your nail, do this on all nails. Allow to dry, then start again with a second coat, dab dab dab, and before your eyes you have an amazing Ombre effect!

Take off tape before the polish dries, then paint over your top coat and tidy up any polish around your nails.

Im going to try this with Grey, Blue and Navy next, once i've done it ill post a picture of how i got on. 

I got the idea for this from Amarixe's video which is below. :)
