You’ve heard the term and you’ve seen it around, but do you know how easy it is to get the look on your nails?
Ombré, or gradient nail art as it is also commonly known as, is a super easy way to transform an otherwise boring manicure into a “wow, how on earth did you do that” one. This is one of my favourite nail art techniques because I am all about mixing bright, fun colours when creating nail art. I mean, why have one colour when you can have them all? Or three at least.
There’s a fair bit of confusion around the terms and a lot of people argue they are very different. Technically ombré is the fading of a colour to a lighter/darker shade of that same colour (e.g light pink to dark pink) and gradient is the gradual fading of one colour to another (e.g yellow to green and then blue) But I don’t like to get too caught up in technicalities. I think both terms are suitable as I use the same technique to achieve both looks. so I’m not too fussed when people refer to these looks as either “ombre” or “gradient”.
So how do you achieve the look then? Lucky for you I recently created a video tutorial on my YouTube channel, showing you how it’s done. Check it out here:
So what do you think of this nail look? What are your favourite colour combinations for this?
