Sometimes bold and bright nail art designs need to take a backseat to delicate and soft manis. This subtle ombré is a great example of that. Whether you use a sponge or nail art brush to achieve the ombré look, this would be perfect for a summer wedding or date night.
All you need are two polishes close in colour and either a makeup sponge or nail art brush to create this subtle ombre nail art look.
To begin, paint your nails with the opalescent nail polish and apply 2 coats. Allow to dry fully before moving onto the next step.
For the ombré step, take some of the second colour on a makeup sponge or nail art brush. If using the sponge, dab the colour on the tip of the nail, extending to approximately the middle of the nail. You can also put some of the base colour on the sponge to create a seamless transition of colour.
If you are using a nail art brush, paint the tips of the nail and extend the brushstrokes to the middle of the nail. This achieves a much more abstract ombré with a clearer distinction between the colours.
Allow the design to dry for 5-10 minutes then apply a top coat. Using a shimmery top coat would also look fantastic with this look.
