To create this ombre, look choose three shades of polish in the same color family. After applying a base coat, paint your nails in the lightest of the three shades. Next you will need a wedge-shape makeup sponge and a paper plate. Pour out a little of the darkest color polish on the paper plate. Use the wide end of the sponge to soak up a little of the polish, and begin dabbing the tip of each nail lightly with the color. Next pour out a little of your medium shade. Use the narrow end of the makeup sponge and dab the color on the nails between the dark and light shades. Finally, finish with a clear top coat. We created this mess-free look by working quickly and cleaning up smeared edges with nail polish remover and coton swabs!
