Imagination Is the Only Imitation Of Nail Art!!
These days nail art has become a popular phenomena with girls around the world.From Movie star to home makers nails, it has shown a tremendous liking everywhere. I was not into much nail decorating as it surly requires lot of patience and steady hand.But finally the fever has took a toll on me.Being a beauty youtuber, you need to use your fingers as your main tool. And if the tools are beautiful, it will make your tutorial more engrossing for viewers.
So this is going to be my first nail art post but will follow more in future.It’s going to be a simplest one with the “Ombre Nails” which is hottest trend these days.
Start with choosing your nails paints.I would suggest lightest to darkest shades.Nails should be free of any nail enamels and dirt.Shape them to your required size with a use of a filer.
Choose the lightest shade as your base coat.The coat needs to be thicker towards your cuticles.For ombre effect, generally white nails polish is used as your base.But you can use any lightest tint from the lot.Let the first coat dry before applying the second one for creating clear canvas for ombre.
Take your triangular makeup sponge and cut into two pieces.Smaller the better as it will be easy to handle on your nails.Its upto you to choose as many shades but three is the perfect number to get the desired effect.Dip the sponge in water before applying any colour and rinse it. It will prevent the sponge to absorb too much enamel.
Shake the bottles thoroughly.Now start with painting the sponge with the lightest in just a wide line. Take the medium shade and repeat the application on sponge with exactly the same size line.The darkest will be last one.There should not be any space between the three shades.Apply at least three coats of each shade for turning into a wet stamp.
Now with steady hand, stamp the sponge on your nail in one motion.Repeat it twice but the sponge should be stamped on the same place as earlier for preventing any mess up.Always remember the placement of sponge should be upside down so that the darkest shade paints on the outer edges of your nails.
Leave your nails for 10 minutes to dry and then apply the clear top coat.It will instantly mattify your nails and gives a smooth overall finish.
Last step is removing all the extra enamel around fingers and cuticles.Instead of cotton or wipes, use a pencil brush or an earbud.They will help to clean off the nail paint minutely.
I have used a mix n match nail paints from different brand.But it needs to be of good quality.Hope you are going to try this simple DIY ombre art and do share it with me on my page 50shadesofvanitty
