What are Ombre Nails?
Ombre nails are a type of nail art that gives a 3D effect by layering different colors on the nail. It can be achieved through either acrylics or gel nails, and it’s been getting very popular in recent years. Born from the fashion industry, it might seem like a trend that wouldn’t last long, but as celebrities start wearing it on the red carpet, fashionistas all over the world are starting to follow suit for this new nail trend.
What is the difference between Acrylic and Gel?
There is a lot of confusion over the difference between gel and acrylic nails. A popular misconception is that gel nails are more expensive than acrylic nails. This is not the case! Gel nails are mostly more expensive because they require that the cuticles be groomed prior to application- which is an extra step that most people do not take with acrylic nails.
What are the different types of nails you can have?
There are 3 main types of nails – natural nails, acrylic nails, and gel nails. Natural nails are the most expensive type of nail but they last longer than acrylic or gel nails. Acrylic nails are the most popular because they’re easy to apply and remove. Gel nails are applied like acrylic but last even longer.
Healthy nail tips
It doesn’t matter how careful you are with your nails, they always end up breaking or chipping. One option is to paint them with a nail polish that has a clear coat over it. This will result in the desired French tip look and will make your manicure last longer. Another easy solution is to use a clear base coat and then duochrome (a color and a metal) and top it off with a topcoat. You can also use regular nail polish without any polishing beforehand, but this will take more time and won’t cover as much area as the other options. Here are some tips for keeping your nails healthy.
What are coffin nails?
A coffin nail is a long, slender nail that has a sharp edge. It’s called coffin nails because it’s shaped like an actual coffin. Coffin nails are similar to stiletto nails. Coffin nails are short, squared-off nails with a very thin edge. The term coffin nail refers to the nail shape while ombre is referring to the color of the nails. Many brides favour the coffin tip for their nails on their wedding day. Coffin tipped nails look amazing with stunning unusual stoned rings or iridescent stones like opal rings.
How to do ombre nails yourself at home?
Ombre nails are a great way to spice up your manicure. It’s a really easy process, too, and you can do it at home with the help of some nail polish and a few cosmetic tools. Start by painting your nails one colour and let them dry for about 15 minutes. Next, use a sponge or makeup brush to paint another colour of polish on the edge of your nail. Let that coat dry before adding an additional coat. You can also use a toothpick to create more designs on the nail that look more professional!
