Ombre nails

Just realised I never uploaded pics of how my ombre nails came out. I did this so often for a while and it was a lot of fun. The cleanup around the nail is just a lot of work though 🙂

Screening off around the nail with some sticky tape does help though if you want to do the extra effort. For this I use some of those small sponges you sometimes get in pill containers, but I realised recently a makeup sponge gives a much smoother gradient, but it sucks up a lot nail polish.

The more you stipple with the sponge the smoother your gradient will be
