What you need:
- Two complimentary pastel polishes. What I choose are Dior “Saint Tropez” and Ginger + Liz “He’s So Into Me.”
- An angled eyeliner brush. There is no need to use an expensive one because it will get covered with nail polish.
- A good top coat.
Step 1: Apply a base coat. To ensure the polish stays as long as possible, make sure that your nails have no oil attached. After that, apply two layers of base coat on your nails. To get the most stunning ombre result, it is suggested using the lighter color as the base.
Step 2: Mix colors. Blend the second color with the colorless polish, each part sharing the same amount and should be in very small amount. Because when the mixture dries, it will become tacky to destroy the painting, it is important to make sure to use fresh polish on each layer.
Step 3: Apply a layer of mixed polish. Use the eyeliner brush to paint the mixed polish on your nails. Be sure to dab and swipe the color lightly from the middle of the nail to the end of the nail. Remember to work quickly to avoid leaving too much mixture on the second layer.
Step 4: Add thin layers. Add a second or third layer of the mixture to your nails, to ensure the color is concentrated at the ends of the nails.
Step 5: Finish with applying a top coat. Make sure to apply a thick top coat, so as to cover up any mishaps and hide any bumps. I usually add 2 or more layers.
