Why we love the ombre nail design so much
Ombre nails are a nail art that creates a distinct color gradient. Typically, this consists of a lighter shade on the upper part of the nail, which seamlessly transitions into a darker shade towards the tip.
A gradient nail design is a very flattering way to make nails appear longer. Not to mention, it also helps indecisive ladies when they have to choose between two different nail polish colors – why not wear both?
Manicure Trend 2023: Metallic Ombre Nails
In 2023, it’s all about a nude shade that transitions into a metallic shade. Pay special attention to silver, it will be super trendy. Another tip is to use nail polishes with the same finish. This will give you a great look, such as a high-gloss ombre.
For the 2023 manicure trend, you need a glitter pigment with a holographic or chrome effect, which is applied to the tips of the nails. For this, you need a brush or a sponge. The more the pigment is pressed into the nail, the more intense the effect will be.
The holographic tips are a great change from the classic French fade and will take your winter manicure to the next level right away.
How to do the nail design yourself
You don’t always have to go to the nail salon to have beautiful nails. If you also like to paint your nails yourself, you can make the hottest nail designs yourself with simple methods and tricks. We will now explain how to achieve the ombre metallic look.
Prepare your nails by filing them into the desired shape and pushing back or cutting your cuticles. Then, put some acetone on a cotton pad and wipe away any dust. Then apply the base coat.
Use a nude colored nail polish of your choice (gel polish is best) and apply one or two coats to the entire nail. You need to let each coat dry out well, or in the case of gel polish, let it cure in a lamp. Then apply a layer of top coat to the nails to prepare them for the next step.
Using a makeup sponge, press the holographic powder into the nail tips and gently spread a small amount of it towards the cuticle. You need to massage the powder in a little to get the high shine.
Seal your design with top coat of your choice – and you’re done. You’ve made beautiful, salon-worthy, holographic ombre nails yourself!
The nail design succeeds perfectly even without gel. In the video you will find a quick tutorial for short nails.
