Knitted Ombre

Hi! Here you will know how to make knitted ombre nails. I chose blue and peach colors for my design. You are free to decide what colors suit you best. So, let’s start!

Step-by-step tutorial

1) Start with nails prep
2) For the base of my design I wanted to create ombre. So, I applied a peach gel polish onto the top part of the nail and a blue gel polish onto the bottom part. (Do not cure!)

6) Furthermore, I topcoated the nail, cured and carefully removed the tacky layer
7) In this step I drew patterns. I used a peach gel polish in the peach part of the nail and a blue one in the blue part. To get gradient patterns, I carefully blended my colors in the central part with a thin brush. (Do not cure!)
