Forget the simple, boring manicures that we have worn for years, and focus your attention on the nail trends seen during New York Fashion Week! Among the geometric shapes and flesh-colored polish, glitter continues its popularity, but in a new form!
Ombre hair took its turn last fall, and now the ombre trend is coming to nails. Not sure what “ombre” is? It is the trend of dark to light in a flowing, natural manner. Curious on how to achieve the look? It is really a very simple process. Here is what you will need:
- Base coat
- Fine glitter polish
- Any type of loose glitter
- Clear topcoat
Step 1- Apply your base coat. I prefer darker colors so the glitter will have more of a “wow” factor.
Step 2- Apply the fine glitter polish to the top 2/3’s of the nail. Do not worry about being precise; I actually like it more when they all look a little different.
Step 3- While the glitter polish is still wet, sprinkle the loose glitter to the top 1/3 of the nail. If the glitter polish happens to dry too quickly, apply a little of the clear topcoat to the tip of your nail and then sprinkle on the glitter. Again, this does not have to be precise.
Step 4- Wait for all the polish to dry, then apply a generous clear topcoat.
Now you can enjoy your new glitter, ombre nails- fresh off the runway!
