NAIL ART 102 - SHIMMER SUNRISE OMBRE

Now that spring is in the air I saw it fit to finally be able to dedicate some nail art to this weather. To that I present to you Shimmer Sunrise - my ode to spring time.

Lets get artsy.......




  • White Nail Polish
  • Yellow Nail Polish
  • Shimmer Peach Nail Polish
  • Clear Nail Polish
  • Make up sponge
  • Nail Polish Remover
  • Cotton Balls
  • Cotton swaps




We are going for the Ombre style look so this is how it is done (hopefully the pictures are sufficient enough.. well I hope you get the drift....


Step 1 - Clean and shape your nails to your desire.....


Step 2 - Get your make up sponge and wet it so that it doesn't allow the nail polish to seep in.


Step 3 - Put two strokes of each color on to the make up sponge (again do so as you desire)

Step 4 - Press the sponge against the nail (back and forth).. this will start the ombre color


Step 5 - Continue adding strokes of nail polish and pressing it against the nail until there is more color and style to be seen.


Step 6 - Clean around your nails with nail polish remover, cotton balls and cotton swaps then brush over clear nail polish

Voila!!! - Shimmer Sunrise Ombre!!!


Try some different colors and/or embellishments... see what you come up with..
