Tips and tricks: How to Create an Ombre Nail Polish Effect
Use a fine cosmetic makeup sponge to achieve the ombre nail effect - the finer the texture, the more seamless the blending. Have all your Sally Hansen polishes ready to go - in order and without the bottle caps on. Layer your colors onto the sponge, slightly overlapping them - no need to be too careful as you’ll repeat this 3 times and any mistakes will be covered - the first time you apply the sponge, the colors will be faded. As you continue on with a second application, the colors become more opaque - simply add polish to the stripes, then the sponge to the nail, and repeat until you are happy with the result. Roll your cosmetic sponge from left to right to lay down the color; ‘refill‘ the same spots with the same polishes and repeat over all the nails. Clean the stained area using a Qtip and top with your favorite topcoat to achieve a seamless ombre, color blocking effect!
