If you’ve already cleaned your nails and want to create ombre nails, start by applying a clear base coat to prevent your nails from getting stained. Then, use white or your lightest color to create your base color coat. To make the ombre effect, paint the colors you want to use in straight lines on a small makeup sponge. Then, stamp the colors onto your nails by pressing the sponge repeatedly onto each nail. Replenish the colors on the sponge after each nail to make sure they remain vibrant. For tips on how to roll the ombre effect onto your nails and how to make it glittery, read on!
