Easy Ombre Glitter Nails

So I always get distracted at Pinterest when I see snaps of gorgeous nail art. And one thing that has been stealing the spotlight since of late is Ombre nails.

Them sexy nails

The Ombre trend that’s sweeping us ladies off our feet isn’t just limited to nails.

see what I mean?

note: even cakes?

I was hyped and I wanted to have the fading gorgeousness on my nails. Not wanting break the saving for buying a cute top on a bunch of new nail colors, I decided to give a crazy idea of mine ago.

So here’s how it goes..

A couple of notes: x. It’s amazingly affordable.  x.In my opinion most of the glitter nail polishes cant pull this off. (but do correct me if I’m wrong)

What you need:

  • Glitter   (you can buy this at any stationary shop. And you need just a tiny smidge, so buy the smallest can/packet they have on sale)
  • A clear nail polish
  • A pin
  • A flat plate to mix
  • and finally a sponge!

Put a bit of glitter on the plate and add a drop or two of clear nail polish on the heap.

Then using your pin mix it until it’s a paste

Dip your sponge (I used a scrunchie, improvise!) in the paste and then sponge it on to your nails! Put the first dab on the top of the nail and then sponge in towards the cuticles, to make it look like it’s fading.

Let it dry and apply a coat of clear nail polish to seal it in.




And you are good to go you, you gorgeous-nail-rocking thang!

It doesn’t always have to be glitter and it doesn’t always have to be the natural nail color.

Imagine the possibilities?

p.s: I’m still learning about how to arrange photos, if you find something useful ‘comment below!’

See what I did there? 😉

My first post

So this is the awkward moment when it’s your first post on anything and you have no idea what to write and have overwhelming fears on ‘am I doing this right?’

Well, damn if I could kick my procrastination to the curb and get myself to write this, I sure as hell can come up with a few sentences, right? There you go, I’ve come up with 1..2.. 2 already! 

I don’t know what to do yet. I’m probably going to play around with themes and all that now despite being disappointed on the Custom Design section. They lured me in with the ‘try out for free’ (clever) and made me get my hopes up with the fancy letters and threw the price tag at me. bummer.
