Tutorial: Ocean Ombre Nails
Hi all! Since nail art is my favorite thing to do, I figured I’d share a tutorial on how to do this simple ombre nail design on your own. I used blue for my nails for a rippled ocean effect, but you can use any group of polishes in the same color family to do your ombre nails. Next, I will probably try white, black, silver, and gray for a chic ombre look.
Step 1: Gather your polishes. For this tutorial, you’ll need 3-5 different polishes in a similar palette of colors. For example, I chose several blue shades for the ocean look.
Step 2: Apply base coat to nails. For this type of nail art, we will work on completing one full hand at a time, before moving on to the next to ensure polish doesn’t dry too quickly.
Step 3: Starting with the lightest shade, apply a messy strip along the top of the nail nearest to the cuticle.
Step 4: Use a shade a tad darker than in the last step and apply a messy strip of polish directly under the first, making sure to blend the two strips together.
Step 5: Repeat Step 4 with the next two or three shades, making sure to not make the strips too perfect.
Step 6: For a fun twist on these ombre nails, add some sparkle to the very tip of the nail.
Step 6: Take your topcoat and blend polish together, always moving the brush downward to not mess up the polish.
Step 7: Enjoy your ocean ombre nails!
