Hi, I’m Elise Wright. I’m here with celebrity manicurist Gerry Holford, and we’re going to show you how to use a nail sponge to create an ombre manicure. Firstly, let’s start with the tools you need: a thumb palette or a piece of foil, an eye shadow applicator, basecoat and topcoat, the two nail colors you are going to use – we’re using a light blue and a dark blue. You’re going to start with your lighter color as your base color. Do one coat, and wait for it to dry. Take your darker color, put a drop on your thumb palette or foil. Get some polish on the sponge, and tap it on up to the middle of the nail, going a little heavier on the tip. Let it dry completely. Add a little more of your dark color to your sponge, and go over the tip to create that beautiful ombre. Let it dry, and seal with a topcoat.
