Miracles of the sponge!
Ombre nails are soon becoming a fashion favourite! Pour a few drops of the two or three colours you intend to use onto butter paper or a ziploc bag. Let these colours overlap just slightly where they meet. Press a piece of sponge on the mixture and apply it on the nail making up and down movements. If ombre is too mainstream for you, try this technique with random or contrastingly different colours for a more emphatic effect. Remember to finish it with a coat of clear polish to give it a smooth texture and shine.
