Nail of the Day ☀ Sparkle Ombre

Hey there, my nail of the day today is a sparkle ombre, over black and a grey accented finger. This look turns out nice every time and lasts forever because of the sparkles.

You'll need
1 or 2 colors
Sparkle polish
Base & top coat


1. Paint your base coat
2. Paint first & second layer of the background color
3. With the sparkled polish, paint the tips of your nails where you want the most sparkles to be
4. Starting at the tip again, dab the brush further down your nail and in any places where you want sparkles to be, dabbing the brush will give you more control over where the sparkles go, giving an ombre effect. Don't put any sparkles near the cuticle.
5. Add a top coat if you think you need it and you're finished!


The polishes I used for this look:

Claire's, sparkle top coat

Claire's, "Galaxy"

Joe Fresh, "Khaki"

Hope you liked this look! :)
