One hot nail trend that isn’t going anywhere is ombre nails. Endless Beauty has been loving the ombre nail effect on celebrities, as well in street style, for a while now so of course we had to find out if we could do ombre nails ourselves at home. We asked the experts from Red Carpet Manicure, the first at home LED gel system, how to achieve this look (nail color fading from light to dark, soft to intense and matte to shimmer). Here is Red Carpet Manicure Nail Technician, Danielle Candido’s step-by-step guide to achieving ombre nails in pink with the Red Carpet Manicure kit:
Step 1: Start out by preparing the nails according to the instructions that come with your Red Carpet Manicure kit. Apply Structure Base Coat and cure.
Step 2: Apply one coat of ‘Candid Moment’ by stroking a thin layer over the entire nail and cure.
Step 3: Next, using a triangular shaped cosmetic sponge, paint ‘After Party Playful’ on the end of the sponge and blot off excess. Then sponge onto ¾ of the nail working from the free edge on an angle towards the cuticle. Cure. Repeat for more intense color.
Step 4: Paint ‘Paparazzied’ on the end of the cosmetic sponge, blot off excess, then sponge onto ½ of the nail on an angle working from the free edge toward the cuticle. Cure. Repeat for more intense color.
Step 5. Apply one coat of ‘Glitterazzi’ to the entire nail and cure.
Step 6. Apply a thin coat of Brilliance Top Coat. Cure and wipe with Purify
There you have it! Beautiful trend-right ombre nails that everyone will envy.
