Ombre Nail Tutorial


The other day I was on youtube watching videos and tutorials and I came across this awesome nail tutorial!  It is originally by the youtube user JaaackJack and her channel is awesome!  I really like it.

Okay, lets get started!


You will need:

  • Clear bottom and top coat nail polish
  • White nail polish
  • Three colors of nail polish of your choice
  • Makeup sponges
  • Nail polish remover and q-tips


Start out with nice clean finger nails.


Apply one coat of the clear base coat nail polish to your nails.

(I used Revlon Multi Care Base+Top Coat which was on sale at Kroger the other day. 🙂 )


After the clear dries, apply your first coat of white nail polish.


You will most likely have to put two coats of white.


After the first coat dries, apply the second coat and allow that to dry.

Now time for the fun part!


Get your sponges out.  I bought these cheap Kroger brand wedges and they worked fine!


Get your colors of nail polish out and go ahead and unscrew all of the tops so you can use each one easier.

(I bought Revlon Fuchsia Fever, Posh Pink, and Angelic.  The Revlon nail polish was all on sale so that’s why I’m using it!)


Apply your polish to the sponge in stripes, darkest to lightest.  Then with your painted sponge you are going to press it onto your nail.


Use a clean part of the sponge or a new sponge for each nail, that way when you do the second coat you’ll get the same pattern.


After you apply the first sponge coat, allow to dry a little and then you can do the next coat!


(first coat)


(second coat)

For the second coat remember which sponge you used for which nail and apply more polish to the sponge and press on the nail once more!  You can do as many coats as you like.  I did two.


Apply a clear coat once you are finished with all the colors and voila!  You have lovely ombre nails to show off! 🙂


Oh yeah, and with your nail polish remover and a q-tip take the access polish off of your skin.  This will definitely get a little messy on your fingers!

Well I have quite a few posts planned and I am excited about posting them and also about spring and all the pretty flowers blooming, etc!  We went to the Creation Museum in Kentucky at the beginning of this month and I have pictures to share from that too!  I hope some of you, readers, enjoyed this post and are able to try this technique sometime.


Have a wonderful rest of the week and a blessed Easter Sunday!  “He is not here, for he has risen, as he said…”  Matthew 28:6

Much love and God bless,
