Just a quick nail art post for today. Why? ‘House-keeping’ kept us all busy here. We’ve successfully transferred SoNailicious to a new, more reliable host. Also, we’re currently designing a new look for the site. The first drafts landed on our table yesterday and it looks fantastic! So, exciting times ahead, lovelies!
As for the glitter gradient we’re showing you today, it was a result of experimenting with these ombre nails. One of the major trends in nail art right now is layering different effects over each other. Ombre nails can be used as a great base for tribal or striping tape nail designs. In our case, we went with one of the easiest, but still impressive looking nail designs – glitter gradient over ombre. Plus, we were dying to try the new gunmetal glitter, ORLY Atomic Splash from the ORLY Flash Glam Winter collection. Ombre reinforced with the dark, super shiny glitter made our nails look like tiny jewels!
Want to know more? Scroll down for a quick how to…
- Do ombre nails as usual. Let them touch dry.
- Apply dark glitter on the tips of your nails gently, with a nail polish brush. Then dab some more glitter particles on tips.*
- Seal your manicure with one or two layers of top coat.
*Most ORLY Flash Glam glitters are perfect for gradient nail art. Some other brands require a sponge or glitter placement (individual glitter particles picked up and placed where needed).
