Discover how to create stunning ombré metallic nails with our step-by-step guide:
What Will I Need to Achieve Ombré Metallic Nails?
- White nail polish
- 2 x metallic nail polish
- Makeup sponge
- Clear tape
Step 1 – Apply a white base coat
Step 2 – Cover nail fold with tape
Step 3 – Coat sponge with polish & apply
Take a makeup sponge and coat with your chosen metallic nail polish. Do this a strip of colour at a time and overlap slightly to create an ombré effect. For example, do a large stripe of metallic blue followed by a stripe of metallic purple. While the polish is still wet, pat the colour onto your chosen nail until the colour has transferred as desired.
