Easy Ombre French Nails Manicure

 Babyboomer nails

Hi everyone!

In this tutorial I am showing how to create a simple ombre French nails manicure: a degrade design (babyboomer). This method is particularly easy because you do the ombre only on the tip and not on the whole nail.

Babyboomer Design

Here I show you how to do this nail design, step by step:

Babyboomer  step by step

First of all I always apply one layer of base coat to protect my nails. For the base of this design I used a white and a pale pink nail polish and I let it dry.

1. I applied two coats of pale pink nail polish on all my nails.
2. I Painted a white French tip with the nail polish brush.
3. I applied white nail polish to a sponge (here I use a nail art sponge by Essence but you can use any sponge, preferably a makeup sponge).
4. I pressed the sponge on to my nail, covering the whole nail tip with polish. I Repeated the process on all my nails, and then went back and applied a second and third coat, until I was happy with the ombre french fade nails effect. I left to dry.
5. I finished off applying a top coat to protect the design and make it last longer.
6. I added a flower-shaped stone. 

To clean up the skin around the nail you can use a flat brush dipped in acetone, sweep it around your nails to remove any polish and create a smooth line around the cuticle for a perfect finish to your french manicure ombre nails.
You can apply some cuticle oil to moisturise the skin, if the acetone dries it out.
