No holiday outfit would be complete without some festive nails. This season, I’m all about ombre nails. It’s super easy to do, especially for those that feel a bit intimated by complicated nail tutorials (like I do). All you need is 5 different nail polish shades in the same family of colors and apply them starting from lightest to darkest.
Here’s a quick and easy tutorial on how to get festive ombre nails.
Step 1. 1 of 7
I picked purple tones, since I love this color for the winter. These are from Sally Hansen, but I also really love Essie and OPI.
Step 2. 2 of 7
Apply the lightest nail polish shade on pinky. I used one called Arm Candy.
Step 3. 3 of 7
Continue with shade Pink Pong.
Step. 4 4 of 7
Next, I applied a shade called Commander in Chic.
Step 5. 5 of 7
Followed by Plum's the Word.
Step 6. 6 of 7
Finally, end with the darkest shade on your thumb. I used Wine Not.
Voila! 7 of 7
And there you have it, an easy and fun ombre nail tutorial.
