DIY Sparkly Ombre Nails

I am loving my nails! I practiced on a nail art wheel and created lots of nail designs and art until I was happy and statisfied. I became inspired to do this nail design after seeing pictures of nail stickers and I decided to recreate them. Nail stickers are great, but after a while the cost of buying them can add up and I'd rather create the design myself.  Ombre nails are actually very easy to do on both hands and can be done very quickly. The silver sparkle even adds more glam power! And don't worry you can use any nails polish colors to do this design.
  1. Grab a clear base and top coat, a sparkly nail polish, and two of the sma
  2. Begin by washing your hands and cleaning your nails with nail polish remover. Do this step even if you don't have on previous nail polish.
  3. Coat your nails with a top coat, this helps your polish to stay on longer.
  4. Polish the top to the middle of your nail with you darkest polish. Let it be a little bit messy when you get to the middle of your nail.
  5. Take your medium shade polish and brush it from the middle and let the color fade into the bottom. Mix it in with the dark polish to create a new color.\
  6. Use your sparkly polish and paint right by your cuticle and take it up to the beginning of the medium polish. Let it mix in with the medium polish to create a new sparkyl color.
  7. Let your nails dry for about ten minutes. Do not immediately put on your top coat, all the colors will run together and be ruined.
  8. After your nails are a little over halfway dry puton your clear top coat and contiue to let your nails dry.
  9. Now your nails are finished and look amazing
If it doesn't work out the first time remember be patient and  practice makes perfect chica!
