INTERMEDIATE TUTORIAL: OMBRE STAMPED LACE NAIL ART – This design by Let’s polish some nails is a great stamping design that’s just a little bit different and refreshing. ~Ana
STEP 1: Basecoat – to protect your nails and create a surface that nail polish bonds to.
STEP 2. Choose 5 shades of Blue that compliment each other. Paint 2 coats of each, one color per finger. Let dry 5 minutes.
STEP 3: Using a plate with a full finger design, stamp a skinny strip and roll onto edge of nail. Let dry.
STEP 4: Topcoat – To seal in your design and give it a high gloss shine. Remember to topcoat the free edge and underside. This extends wear and reduces water absorption, which causes peeling and chipping.
1. Konad and Bundle Monster stamping plates are available at Amazon. YouTube “Konad Stamping” for helpful videos.
2. Stamping is tricky so practice on old manicures before you take them off.
3. The thumb in this photo should be a nice navy blue. Strange things happened in Photoshop, while I was trying to color correct the image. I think you get the idea
4. It looks like this artist wasn’t satisfied with white over the pale pinkie color, and went back over it with a darker color. It’s up to you!
