Ombre nails

Had a go on my own nails doing ombre using just nail Polish did not turn out very good. :( I did a base coat then applied three colours onto sponge then rolled the sponge over the nail. I did it a few times to build it up then 2 top coats as it wasn't very smooth with just 1. Would appreciate any tips you have cos I have seen some really good looking effects.

Thanks

Hi,
When I do ombré I use basecoat, 1 or 2 coats of white polish.
(Let them dry) then sponge the colours I want over the top. & topcoat.
Here's a couple of examples,
Does take a couple of goes to get it perfect though

Here are some i did, i use a makeup sponge and paint the polish in lines on the sponge to blend, so with the blue and yellow id paint a thick stripe of blue then over half the blue and at the side id paint yellow so it makes green in the middle, then dab on the nail, if i was to do it without merging colours id dab on sepratley, you get best results when you put a white coat underneath, its abit messy but there is loads of great videos on youtube, practice makes perfect :) x
