these fading, amazing nail gradient looks are mesmerizing, modern, and totally ombré-perfection. but how does a mere mortal pull off these pro-looking gradient nails—whether it’s classic red or colorful trend driven? with a little help from essie. so here’s how.
step 1: polish the side of each nail with bahama mama and forever yummy, allowing them to meet vertically in the middle.
step 2: repeat the step on the edge of a cosmetic sponge, mirroring the nail. working quickly, lightly tap the sponge onto the nail, moving side to side, to blend a seamless ombre.
step 3: finish with an essie topcoat.
