Besides having ombréd hair, you can also add ombré into your daily life with much less of a commitment. Gradient nails are extremely easy to achieve and always has the admiration of others. You’ll have people coming up to you all week asking where did you get your nails done, and when you tell them that you did it yourself? They’ll be even more floored!
This look isn’t just your basic gradient nail though, we’ve upgraded it with some sparkle and glitz that’ll be perfect for that fabulous NYE outfit that you’ve planned to wear in order to celebrate the new year! So what’re you waiting for, let’s nail this!
Step 1. Apply your base coat of choice.
Always make sure to protect your nails from the harsh chemicals of nail polish by applying a base coat. Not only will this nourish your nails, but it’ll also prevent color transfer from polishes.
Step 2. Apply a black polish in multiple layers until opaque.
You want a nice and dark base, so we went ahead and chose a black. Apply as many layers as necessary until your nail is one opaque color.
Step 3. Apply a silver polish to your tips.
We’re having our nails fade in a gradient from black to silver, so we’re painting our tips a solid silver color. Use as many coats as necessary to get an opaque color.
Step 4. Blend between black and silver with a glitter polish.
To create a smooth gradient effect, we took a chunky glitter polish and diffused the border between the black and silver to create a nice and even transition. This may take a couple tries but we guarantee that it’ll turn out great!
Step 5. Seal it all off with a top coat.
To make sure that your manicure stays, seal it off with a top coat. Don’t forget to seal off the edges and the side of your nails as well!
Step 6. Clean your nails.
Clean off any excess polish that went on your fingers instead of your nails and you’re finished!
You’re now ready to rock that amazingly glittery gradient nail art for the NYE and to ring it in style!
