While sat at my desk today writing down my shopping list to take to Tesco, the item that topped the list was...sponges. Yes. Sponges.
14 pence well spent! A good old fashioned sponge is key for gradient/ombré nails... I just cut a piece about 1cm wide off the end and then cut the scouring side off - hey presto! Next grab a bit of baking paper or something that the nail polish wont stick to too easily and your 2 polish colours. (I say two only because I find it easier with just two and it blends a little better!)
So paint your nails with your first colour... preferably the lighter colour but whatever rocks your boat! While your waiting for this to dry pour a little of the two colours out on the baking paper beside each other so they just touch. Then grab a cuticle stick and swirl it around in the middle of the paint a little to mix them up...not too much though.
Oh yeah..so we still look like toddlers. Get some hot soapy water in your sink and dip you hands in for around five mins, I find this will get some of the polish off and make it easier for the rest of the clean up! Then grab some cotton buds and nail polish remover and go around the rest of your fingers to take off the rest of the misplaced polish - some hand cream and we're done!
Hope you liked it and post us links to your ombréd nails!!!
