This week I bring you two colours, my first attempt at ombre nails (emphasis on first). The colours I used were Urban Outfitters W.I.P Peppermint and Topshop Nails Jewel in the Crown.

To do this I painted the nail with my base colour: Peppermint. I then poured out the darker colour: Jewel in the Crown, onto a plastic sheet and used a make-up sponge to lightly stipple the colour onto the tips of my nails, adding more and more product to intensify the colour at the tip. To clean things up, I poured out the base shade: Peppermint, and used the opposite side of the sponge to stipple in-between the darker colour and the base to create a better gradiation of colour.

If you like this nail look, I shall practice and perfect my technique and pick a spring/summer nail and can do a detailed blog post with pictures and instructions or a video? If so, suggest colours you would like to see!

Have you tried the ombre nail?
