Chic Ombre Nail Art

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!

I came across this AMAZING french nail artist online, and I couldn’t keep this wonderful nail blog to myself!

Nature Nails by Tenshi no Hana

My favorite chic and simple nail design from her blog are these ombre effect Nails!

This look can be achieved by first applying one color all over the nail, and a second color with a sponge on just the tip of the nail. The sponge is a great tool for creating the ombre effect since it blends the two polishes together into a haze where they meet.

Blue Glitter Ombre Nail 

Love the gradient on this one! Absolutely perfect to do with gel as well since it’ll grow out nicely.

Watercolor Effect Ombre Nails By American Apparel 

American Apparel recently got on the ombre nail trend with their new line of sheer polishes in six bright and colorful shades. I’m not too sure about the sheer look of the polish, but I love the effect of the varying ombre color combinations on the model’s fingers.

I’m excited to give ombre nails a try! It’s not a super new trend but it’s definitely one that will last through the summer and the autumn season to come.

Have a great week!

      Haha, surprisingly most of them are not professionally done. I just wanted to collect some inspiration for a future ombre tutorial. Thanks for visiting!
