The companies "cocktail" concept allows your inner artist the avenue to create a masterpiece on your nails. The products are meant to be layered and combined to create innovative and endless effects with their fun & whimsical approach.
Check out this very extensive yet comprehensive tutorial on Ombre Nail Art.
Step 1: Prepare everything you need before you begin your ombré: here we have the two colors (Grappa - purple, and Admiral Perry - cobalt blue) we'll be cocktailing to create our ombré effect, a great base and topcoat, Cocktail Napkins nailpolish remover wipes, and a few makeup sponges. Remember to protect your work surface before beginning to paint!
Step 2: Start by applying your favorite base coat. We're using Nailtini's Simple Syrup - a great start to fill in ridges on the nail surface and to add "stick" to the nail to keep the polish from chipping.
Step 3: Apply the first color to the entire nail and let dry.
Step 4: Paint two stripes of color - your starting color and the color you want to fade into the nail bed onto your makeup sponge. Put the base color closest to the tip of the sponge.
5: Begin to stipple the color onto the tip of the nail using the sponge and continue until you have the ombré blend desired.
Step 6: The texture of the polish may be a little rough due to the stipple, and you'll likely have to clean up the skin a bit, but already it's looking good!
Step 7: Use your favorite clear topcoat - we're using Nailtini's Dry Gin fast-dry topcoat. This will smooth out texture and further blend the ombré effect.
Step 8: Use a little nailpolish remover to clean up any smudging left by your stippling - we love Nailtini's Cocktail Napkins remover squares!
Final Step: The finished effect is glamorous, glossy, and on-trend!
I hope you enjoyed this information, have fun painting!
