[NOTM] Pink Ombre Stain

4 years ago

I`m actually pretty happy with how this effect turned out! hehe. I saw it posted on http://thebeautydepartment.com/2012/04/pretty-polish-idea/ and knew i needed to try it! I love the subtle gradient of the ombre style. hehe. This method isn`t actually as hard as it is time consuming. Becuase, you have to find similar colors then repaint the lines every time. You can see what to do on TBD`s website, with pictures of step by step, but here is my version (with my tips). You will need:

  • 3-4 shades of the same color

  • A dish of water

  • Triangle cosmetic sponges

  • A piece of paper

  • A small brush, or cotton swabs

  • Nail polish remover

The method:

  • 1. Dip the sponge in the water, then squeeze out most of the water but make sure the sponge is still damp (so that the nailpolish doesn`t dry out.

  • 2. Paint strips of your desired colors in a gradient fashion (dark on the edge, going to light as you move down the triangle sponge).

  • 3. Test the color combination on a piece of paper (also to get rid of excess polish), bouncing the sponge lightly to blend.

  • 4. If satisfied with the color, bounce the sponge over your nail.

  • 5. Repeat 2-5 until color on nail is at your desired darkness (mine took 3 coats).

  • 6. Clean up the nail polish that ends up on your skin with a small brush or cotton swabs dipped in nail polish remover.

I did a pink ombre stain (as you can see from my pictures) and used the following colors:

  • Lara by Zoya

  • Candy-licious/Rose Bonbon by Wet n Wild from the Megalast collection

  • Shelby by Zoya

What do you think of this look? And, have you ever done the ombre stain on your nails? :3
