Discover how to create stunning ombré metallic nails with Superdrug’s step-by-step guide:
What Will I Need to Achieve Ombré Metallic Nails?
- White nail polish
- 2 x metallic nail polish (you can use any nail polish if you don’t have metallic)
- Makeup sponge
- Clear tape
Step 1 – Apply a white base coat
Apply a coat of white nail polish – this will maximise the shine of your next chosen metallic hues. Go for two coats for a bold, streak-free finish.
Step 2 – Cover nail fold with tape
Using tape, cover any area near the nail bed that you would not want the nail polish to transfer to. We recommend using scotch tape here as it is easy to remove. Other methods include coating the skin with petroleum jelly, like Vaseline, to prevent staining.
