Pictorial ~ Ombre Manicure ~ Zoya Sooki (pic heavy)

Hey dolls, some of you requested a pictorial of how I did my first ombre mani (view it HERE) a few weeks ago…so here it is. Here are the materials needed:

  • Opaque nail polish of your choice
  • white polish
  • base/top coat
  • toothpicks
  • aluminium foil or a paper plate
  • acetone/polish remover. 

I used Zoya Sooki as the original color and Sally Hansen White On as the add in.

First apply the base coat of your choice. I used Sally Hansen Double Duty. After the base coat is dry, polish your pinkies with the opaque color of your choosing.

Place 3-4 drops of your opaque color onto the mixing surface.

Add one drop of white polish, then mix with a toothpick until the colors are blended.

Polish both ring fingers with this mixture. Its easier to do the fingers at the same time, so make sure you mix enough for both.

Clean off your brush using acetone/polish remover after each finger to avoid the colors mixing.

For the middle fingers, add 2 drops of white to the base color then stir with a toothpick.

Continue with the index fingers by adding 3-4 drops of white to the base color. Stir and then polish both index fingers.

For the thumbs, put down 3-4 drops of white polish first. Then add 1 drop of your base color and stir.

Here’s what your completed ombre mani will look like. You just have to use your judgment when adding white to make sure the color progressively changes. When done, I added a top coat of Seche Vite.

I know, I know…that was a lot of pics. But at least all of you can do this now. Its super easy and only took me about 15-20 mins. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Happy polishing dolls!
