Simple and pretty. I love doing my nails like this and the colour combinations are literally limitless. Black and gold for the evening. Soft pinks for a date. Black and white for a bit of edge... To do this, I paint my nails all over with my chosen base colour and let them dry completely. Then I get my top colour and, wiping off as much varnish as possible on the brush, start painting that colour on top from about halfway up the nail. Build up the top colour towards the tip of the nail by going back over again, starting higher up. Do it till you're happy then paint over with a glossy topcoat to get the colours to blend really smoothly into one another. To make one nail different to the other, like my ring fingers, just swap around your base and top colours! There are lots tutorials for different ways to do ombre nails (like this and this) but this way I like for the simple fact of needing nothing but your three varnishes, no sponges, no cling film, no messy clean up. Maybe I'll do a proper picture tutorial one day?
