I bring you another simple and gorgeous design which you all can do at your home: the ombre or gradient nail design with simple black roses.
I really loveeeee how this turned out [earlier this week I showed this in another post here]. This is one of my favourite nail looks ever! You can also omit the black rose design if you do not feel too confident using a thin striper brush.
What I used are:
- A mint nail polish
- A vivid blue nail polish
- A black nail polish [or black acrylic paint]
- A make up sponge which I've cut in half
- Cotton buds or q-tips
- Nail polish remover
- Top Coat
- Striper brush or thin brush to draw on the roses
This is how they turned out:
Start off by painting your nails with 1 coat of the mint polish [or any other light colour of your choice]
Paint on several coats of the mint and blue nail polish on a wedged make-up sponge, starting with the mint at the top and the blue at the bottom. Try to overlap the blue on the mint to help achieve the gradient effect;
Dab the sponge on your nail, wait for the first coat to dry then repeat;
Use a clean cotton bud dipped in nail polish remover and clean up the cuticle area off any excess polish. Using a nail striper or black acrylic paint, draw out the outline of 2 roses - they are really easy to do promise! Just start from the inside and work yourself outwards using small semi-circular lines;
This is how my palette looks like atm......
Allow the roses to dry and seal the polish with a clear top coat;

Hope you try this cute ombre design out :)
