The gradient manicure at home is fairly simple, just need to know the basic principles of creating such a design.


Where to start?

If you create any of the patterns on the nails, it is necessary to start with a basic manicure. In no event it is impossible to decorate ugly, unkempt, broken nails chipped and roughened cuticles. Regardless of the selected pattern like this manicure will not look beautiful.

Therefore, the first step is to carry out basic care: remove with nail plate lacquer, make a hand bath, to soften and remove (or trim) the cuticle, give the nail shape and file them. Only then can you degrease the nail plate and applying a base coat.


What is the gradient

The gradient is called smooth color transitions. This direction is very important: from the tissues with a gradient pattern sew fashionable clothes, in this technique dyed hair and nails. And it is on the nails, perhaps, the gradient looks particularly impressive. Most often the nail plate to change the shade from the base to the tip, but can be any other direction. For example, if the nails are broad, it is possible to visually narrow down using the vertical gradient strips. And fans of eccentric design can try a diagonal gradient strips.

The Ombre manicure is another name for a gradient manicure. Except the name, the difference between the two types of design no.

What colors to use for a gradient manicure? It all depends on personal preference. Equally good looking color transitions as relatives, and contrasting colors. You can make a whole rainbow on your nails – such a colorful manicure will not only lift your spirits, but will suit any outfit.

The combination of color options so much that it is difficult to highlight the most popular ones. Very good looking combination of dark blue and light blue shades, the tandem of purple and turquoise, the combination of pink and orange. Effective option for the evening – black-red gradient manicure. A softer version is a combination of milky-white with any saturated color, be it red, blue, emerald green or orange. Delicately look shades that differ only on couple of shades – pale pink to dark pink, light green in rich green. Extravagant look transitions from orange to blue or purple in green.

You can use gloss, matte or shimmering sprays. Glitter will add a festive manicure, matte shades – of nobility. When choosing the number of shades you should consider the length of nails: long is, where is “roam”, but short nails are best to decorate two, maximum three shades.

Usually the nail tip cover more saturated color than the base, but this rule can and should be broken. The beauty of a gradient manicure just that there are no strict rules – only shades harmoniously with each other. The brighter colors are used, the more careful should be the performance. Therefore, beginners should practice on light shades and semi-transparent textures.


Secrets of the gradient coloring

How to do a gradient manicure? At home to perform this kind of design will require varnishes desired colors and a piece of sponge. You can take your ordinary sponge, which is designed for washing dishes – of course, unused. Suitable applicators for applying eye shadow, but first we should check whether it is convenient to use: sizes sometimes foam applicators are too small.

It is desirable that the pores of the foam are as low as possible: so the varnish is absorbed into the sponge without residue. But in any case at a gradient manicure takes of lacquer, and this should be ready. But the result of neglect savings – Ombre manicure always looks delicious.

Methods of applying varnish with a gradient manicure there are a few:

  • Lucky strips are applied directly to a piece of sponge, then the sponge is pressed tightly to the nail. In this case, the image is transferred to the nail plate;
  • You can apply strips of varnishes close to each other on a piece of foil and dense lashes with a thick layer. Piece of foam you need to press first to these strips, and then to the nails;
  • The nail lacquer is applied to the selected color, and a second varnish is transferred to the tip of the nails with a sponge;
  • The nail from the base to the centre one is painted with lacquer, and then the tip of a lacquer of a different color, and while the coating is wet, it is pressed against a piece of foam so that the boundary tone is eroded. This method, despite its apparent simplicity, quite uncomfortable because it is very difficult to make the coating uniform.

Typically, one layer of varnish can’t be limited to: required several times to apply the coating so that it is quite expressive. Each layer must dry thoroughly. When the manicure is finished, apply a top coating that will make the nail surface smooth. Without topcoat not do, because the paint is applied unevenly, and the satin smoothness when using a sponge to achieve the impossible.

In addition to the usual top cover you can use varnish with glitter. It is perfectly disguise small defects manicure, for example, insufficiently accurate color transitions. In addition, sparkling sequins will add a festive manicure, bright look.

Manicures in the style of Ombre is almost impossible to do without contaminating your fingers. Therefore, before applying the varnish, be sure to lubricate the skin around the nails any grease (e.g. petroleum jelly or cream) that the dirt was easily removed. After that, choose the nail plate should be thoroughly degreased, otherwise the varnish will be removed and with them. Some masters prefer to seal the skin around the nails with transparent tape, but this method is hardly suitable for self nail design.
