Step 1: Keep Your Nails Strong!
After thoroughly cleaning your nails, apply a clear base coat to help strengthen them. Covering your nails with a base coat before applying nail polish helps protect your nail from being damaged.
Remember to wait for your nails to dry before starting your orange ombre nail art!
Step 2: White Makes Your Orange Ombre Nail Art Pop!
To make your sunset orange ombre nail art pop out more, apply at least two coatings of a plain white polish for the base. Make sure that it’s dry before moving on to the next step.
Step 3: Make Cleanup Easy
Since you’ll be using a sponge to apply the ombre nail art, it’s better to prevent messes by applying liquid latex around your nails. Trust me, this will make cleaning up later a million times easier.
Step 4: Prep Your Ombre Colors
Using a triangle makeup sponge, dab on a generous amount of yellow nail polish on the edge. Then pick out an orange color to dab beside the yellow polish. Finally, use red for the third line. Don’t worry about them overlapping. This will all turn into the most gorgeous fiery sunset orange nail art later on!
Step 5: Time To Blend Your Orange Ombre Nail Art!
After you’re satisfied with the colors for your gradient, start dabbing the sponge on your nail! Continue to do so until all of the white has been covered.
Do this two to three times until you get the desired effect. Don’t mind the excess nail polish beyond your nails. The liquid latex you applied around your nails blocked the mess from reaching your skin.
Step 6: Coat It Like You Mean It!
After getting just the right colors for the fiery sunset orange ombre nail art apply a clear top coat. This will help your nail design last longer.
Afterward, peel off the latex around your nails and, voila! You’ve got yourself a gorgeous sunset orange ombre nail art! This would go perfectly with your favorite summer look!
