Tick Tock, Tick Tock! We’re hours away the clock striking 12 and the beginning of a new year. YEA!!! Glittery NYE nails are a must. I placed a call to friend and fab nail artist Karen G. to help me create Van Gogh inspired, Starry Night-like glitter ombre nails. Starry Night + Glitter + NYE… I was really feeling inspired.
Karen is a true nail art professional, working with such celebs as Selena Gomez and Gisele Bündchen, but she taught me an ombre technique that’s so simple I just had to share with you! It can easily be done at home in whatever color/ glitter combo you desire.
First apply your base color. I love, love After School Boy Blazer!! I like to wear darker colors during the Winter and although it might look black in the pic, it’s actually a gorgeous navy color and really brings the drama.
Now it’s time to ombre! Apply your second color, in this case the glittery Hors D’oeuvres. Start at the middle of the nail and work your way to the tip.
The to finish off the effect, take your third color (here we used On A Silver Platter) and apply it to just the tip of your nails.
Thanks Karen G for the lesson in ombre!! Be sure to follow her Instagram (here) for more nail art inspiration.
