Brushed Ombre Accent Nail Tutorial…

Inspired by my Camp Beverly Hills sweatshirt, I painted my nails minty green and gray and wanted a little extra pink as accent nails to tie it all together. The colors are admittedly 80′s, and some of my favorites really, and I’m loving the ombre effect. I kind of wish I did it to every nail, though the dark gray/hot pink combo on every nail felt a little too dark for these Summer days.

Here’s What I Used…


* Gray, Mint, Light Pink, Hot Pink Nail Colors
* Top Coat {I used Essie “Good to Go“}
* Nail Art brush {you can buy it in a small set of brushes or grab an entire nail art tool set}

* Begin by painting your thumb and ring finger gray & your other nails in mint and let dry. To create the brushed ombre effect, follow the steps below…


* Pour a little of your lightest color polish onto a paper towel or plate.

* Dab your fan brush in it and blot it off onto a paper towel.

* Now pour your hot pink out and touch just the ends of your brush in the paint. Blot.

* Carefully drag your brush over your nail creating a brushed/palm frond effect.

* While your hot pink is still wet, dab your brush back into the light pink {pour out more if you need to} and brush it on just the tip of your nail, allowing it to settle into the hot pink and gradient the colors down the bed of your nail.

Ta-da!
