Ombré Each Nail with tutorial

So, this design looks pretty crazy in person. Almost 3d.  I used three shades of purple and a highlight of white.  I went dark to light, but it would also look great light to dark.  It would look great in other colors as well! I didn’t need any special tools, but depending on the size of your nails and polish brushes, you may choose to use a nail art brush.

I used one coat for each step and just started layering the colors.

Top coat is essential to smooth out all the layers.

    It looks awesome! I think the dark -> light thing makes it look like a cartoon version of natural light reflections of a shiny nail, a really cool effect 🙂

      Yes! I think light to dark would be totally different! I will have to try it soon!
