nail art: white to black striped gradient
Applying thin vertical stripes of color is a simple way to create a modern gradient nail design. I used pinks for this look a few months ago, but today I’ll show you how to get this ombre mani with shades of grey.
Starting with the lightest color, paint a vertical stripe down the side of each nail. You could use a small paintbrush, but I just used the normal polish brush. Continue with the remaining three colors, adding stripes until you’ve filled your entire nail with polish. For best results, work polish by polish (paint every nail with the first color, then move on to the next color) rather completing a full nail at a time.
Dip a small makeup brush in polish remover and clean up around the edges. Once all of the polish is dry, add a good top coat to smooth out the brushstrokes and add some shine!
Voila! Have you played around with gradient/ombre manis? What’s your favorite technique?
