I trialled two nail looks for Leeds, well I did one and it was pretty amateur, so I got the proper tools and did it again. The second time round I changed the colours though, better or worse - what do you think?
Anyway, this ombre nail trend is pretty simple to do...
What you need: a pale opaque nail varnish (i.e. white, pastel blue), two or three different coloured nail varnishes of your choice, and a makeup sponge.
Step 1. paint your nails with the pale opaque nail varnish and let it dry.
Step 2. wet your makeup brush and squeeze it to get rid of the excess (so your nail varnish won't just soak in).
step 3. paint your chosen nail varnish colours on to your sponge in the order you want them on your nails i.e. light-dark or dark-light or whatever.
step 4. press this on to your nail, for a less defined, more 'blurry' look, stamp it a few times, maybe even changing it's position. Let your nails dry fully.
Step 5. Top coat to keep it in place!
I'm off to Leeds tonight, I will update with how wet and muddy it was and what I wore (probably just 5 jumpers and a cagoule) when I get back!x
