  • Ombre Nail Art Tutorial Using Acrylic Paint

    2,989,339 views 4 years ago
    I had a lot of questions on how I do gradients on instagram and my Sunset Forest nail design. I like to use acrylic paint and a makeup sponge for gradients. For me it blends better and the paint doesn't dry on the sponge as fast as nail polish does. If you don't have acrylic paint, you can still use nail polish. Hope this is helpful and thanks for watching!

    Steps:
    1)Paint your nails white and allow them to dry.
    2)Create 3 stripes of color on a makeup sponge. I blended the lines on the sponge also.
    3)Sponge on a thin layer.
    4)Add more paint to the sponge and create more layers until it looks well blended and opaque (I used 3 for this design).
    5)Clean off the excess paint using water and a q-tip or paper towel etc.
    6)Add a top coat.
    Hope this is helpful! 😊
