DIY ombré nails


I've been wanting to try these nails out for weeks now, but didn't have the guts to try it out! I knew it would be messy and I dislike when I don't get something right first time (yes huge flaw!)
So as we all know procrastination at its worst means I do everything but the task I am set out for, which is completing uni assignments.

What you'll need:

Light nail colour - Essie Fiji
Dark Nail Colour - OPI You're A Pisa Work
Topcoat + Basecoat
Small Sponge
Cocktail sticks
Nail varnish remover

Started off with a basecoat, my new Nails Inc one.
Applied 2 coats of Essie Fiji
Placed a large dollop of both nail varnished beside each other on a piece of cardboard
Swirled the two colours lightly together with a cocktail stick
Placed sponge on top of varnish and went crazy on my nails!
Just remember you can be as messy as you want as you just have to clean the edges up with nail varnish remover!

Hope you enjoyed it, Think I will try this again and hopefully get better at it as time goes on!
