Ombre Gradient Nail Art with Roses [Step-by-Step Tutorial]

Dear readers,

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;


Colours I used;



Hope you try this cute ombre design out :)

Love,

Lorraine
