Autmn ombré nails!

One thing I love to do around the holidays is fun nail art that suits the occasion. With Thanksgiving just a few days away, I figured I’d give you guys a fun nail tutorial that will make passing the peas look a little more glamorous.

Things you’ll need:
1.) paper plate
2.) cosmetic wedge applicator ( foundation sponge)
3.) tweezers ( I use a silver clip in my photo)
4.) Any tan or light mustard colored nail polish
5.) orange nail polish ( nothing too neon)
6.) Gold glitter nail polish.

Apply your base coat and two coats of your tan nail polish. (I only used one coat because the color was very opaque). Then let it completely dry before going on the the next step.

Take your orange nail polish and make a little puddle in the center of the paper plate ( be generous so the paint doesn’t dry too fast).

Cut a piece of the cosmetic wedge and using your tweezers to grasp the sponge, dip it lightly into the puddle of orange polish.
Then starting at the tip of your nail dab up to the middle of your nail. You want to keep most if the color at the tip and let the rest fade out to the middle.
Do this to all of you nails and then repeat for a second coat so it doesn’t look to sheer.

Once your done with your ombré, apply one coat of gold glitter nail polish. Make sure there isn’t too much polish on your brush. You don’t want the glitter to cover the ombré. We just want enough for a little sparkle.

Finish with your favorite top coat and let your nails shine brighter than grandmas fancy china. Enjoy!
