Manicure Monday: Purple Ombre Nails (With A Tutorial) My 100th post :)

Hello Everyone!
 My apologies for the missing pictures. My pictures were accidentally deleted off my blog. Please Refer to my Instagram account miss_pilar to view the pictures (or some of the pictures) that were deleted.  
For today's Manicure Monday I did purple ombre nails. I've wanted to try to these for the longest, so I gave it an attempt finally. To get this look, I wanted to share my tutorial on how I did my nails. (They're are various ways to achieve ombre nails, this is just how I did mine)




-Clear nail polish
-White nail polish
-2 or 3 nail polishes of your choice
-Cosmetic Sponge
-Spray Bottle with water (optional) or water
-Nail polish remover
-Q-Tips or Flat eyeliner brush
-Paper towels


1. Place a base coat on your nails


2. Now polish your nails white (1 or 2 coats your choice)


3. After you let your nails dry, cut the cosmetic sponge to the length of your nail.


4. Wet the sponge slightly (drain any water) and coat thin layers of your desired polish. For these ombre nails, I just used 2 colors


5. Press the sponge on the first nail (I started with my thumb) and keep dabbing until you get an ombre effect. Side Note: This is the step that can get messy.


6. While your nails are still wet, place a top coat of clear polish on your nail and let dry.

7. Take a Q-Tip or a flat eyeliner brush and clean any remaining polish around your nails

Now your finished :) I hope that my written tutorial helped you achieve the ombre look you desire



Side Note: This is my 100th post :)
