Selena DeHart of Pink U Rock nail art blog is lending us her glossy nails for some mani love. Check out her ombre nail design that screams, "It's spring!" and find out how you can easily do this design yourself!
Ready for spring
It's officially spring and it's the perfect time to glam up those frosty winter nails! Rock an ombre look this spring without even touching your hair because this hot trend can be sported right on your fingertips.
Fade into hue
To get this look, you need to pick a color. For my look, I chose purple. You can choose three or four colors, all within the same color range but ranging from light to dark in shade. If you're not quite the polish addict and don't own that many shades of one color, you can choose one polish color and just add a few drops of white to each layer to lighten them up. Just mix the polish on wax paper or a paper plate with a toothpick to create a few different shades! For this tutorial, I will be using four different colors by Island Girl in the shades Island Paradise, Aloha Luau, Mahalo Dream and Waikiki Dream.
Get your tools
Tools are minimal for this look. All you really need is a triangle makeup sponge. These can be purchased in most drug and grocery stores in the makeup and beauty section. Also, grab a few Q-tips to clean up around your nail when you're done.
