Nail Art | Purple Ombre Inspired

As a nail art newbie, I've been looking for different nail designs and I came across this purple ombre inspired look. I've never heard of ombre nails before but I couldn't wait to try it out! This design is so easy to do. I painted my nails with Seventeen gel colour nail polish in 'Pretty Bang Bang'. After that, I got a makeup sponge and painted a line on the sponge with the same polish and then got my other darker polish which is Estee Lauder's 'Black Plum' and painted another line above. I then dab the sponge all over my nails and then that's it! Around your nails will look a little messy after this step but all you need is some nail polish remover.

This was my first attempt and I didn't think it would turn out as good as it has. I'm really loving this nail effect as the purple ombre looks so beautiful! I can't wait to experiement with other colours. I really want to do a red and black ombre look!

What do you think of the ombre nail art design?
Love Rachel.x

  15. Ombre nails are so easy to do but look like you've put so much effort in! I like to put a glitter nail polish as the ombre bit because it looks so lovely!
