1

Start with clean nails that have no nail polish or dirt on them. For a cleaner look for your nails, you can apply fevicol outside your nails so the nail polish doesn’t stain them.

2

Paint a solid colour on your nails as a base coat.

3

Next, on a plate, paint a small square of the base coat and ombre colour making sure they don’t mix but aren’t too far apart.

4

Using a toothpick, make them merge by mixing them in the centre. Leave the outer portions of the squares untouched.

5

Grab a sponge and dab it on the nailpolish you just mixed, which will give you an ombre effect.

6

Apply it on your fingernail, making sure the base coat side is towards your nail bed and lightly keep dabbing without moving it.

7

After it looks something like this, let it dry for an hour or two.

8

Apply a top coat on top of it to seal the pattern in.

9

Clean up the sides with a brush and acetone or if you had applied fevicol, you can peel it off without any hassle.

10

Your ombre nails are complete!
