Lazy Ombre Nails Tutorial

Want faded color nails but don't have a lot of time? I present to you...lazy ombre nails!!! I love using ombre gradient nails as a background for other designs like butterfly or zebra nails, but sometimes it's just so time consuming especially when you're just gonna cover up most of it! This method isn't as precise and flawless as the sponge methodfor gradient nails, but it's super easy and doesn't require any tools. Just the brush in your nail polish bottle. I used neon polishes for this tutorial, which was kind of stupid because neons have a tendency to dry uper fast and go on chunky. So maybe avoid neons unless you want an extra challenge!
In this tutorial I used Sinful Colors in 24/7, China Glaze in Sun of a Peach, ACO in Lovely Day, OPI Nail Envy base coat and Seche Vite top coat.

tips & tricks

  • Start with barely any polish on the brush, you can always add more but it's hard to take away!
  • Make sure your base color is completely dry or you risk smudging.
  • If it doesn't look blended enough try "stippling" the polish. Hold your brush vertically over the nail and just dab the end of the brush with very little polish on the nail.
  • This tutorial works best with complimentary colors. Try to stay within the ROYGBIV of the rainbow. Meaning, use yellow, green and blue rather than orange blue and yellow because they don't fade into each other as naturally.

  • The finished product.
