How to Apply Ombre Powder Nails
Any girl who wants to make their nails look elegant can apply ombre powder nails. Here are the steps that you should follow to get ombre powder nails as per your preferences. All you have to do is to follow these steps, and you can create great looking nails that will certainly turn some heads.
1. Clean and Prepare the Nails
If you want to get a long-lasting and good-looking ombre powder coating, you should ensure that your nails are properly cleaned before starting the application process. You will also need to push back the cuticles. It will help you to create a rough texture on top of the nail plate. Check this video about preparation.
2. Apply the Base Coat
Once you are done cleaning your nails, you should proceed to apply the base coat. You will need to apply this base from halfway to the surface of the nail while stroking out in the direction of the nail tip.
3. Dip the Tip of Your Nail
Now you can dip the tip of the nail to the acrylic gently. You will need to make sure that you are only dipping the tip of the nail. Make sure that it is a light colour.
4. Color the Tip of Your Nail Plate
Next, you should take a fluffy brush, and proceed with colouring the tip of the nail plate. A CL-64 brush will be able to deliver the best results for you. This is where the acrylic powder will be transferred to the nail plate. This will be done without enhancing the amount of acrylic powder that is present on the nail.
5. Repeat Step 3 and Step 4
You will need to repeat both step 3, as well as step 4. This will help you to get more coverage on the nails.
6. Apply Base Again
You should go back to step 2 and then apply the base again. Then you will need to pour the base and finish over the nail bed, so that you will be able to effectively seal the powder.
7. Apply the Activator
For the last step, you should apply the activator. Make sure that you apply it thoroughly to get the best results. Then you will need to wait for a duration of three minutes. It will then harden after that. Following this, you should file and buff the nails. You will need to wash your hands thoroughly, and then wipe them with alcohol to ensure your hands are clean.
You will also be able to apply a coat from the sealer you applied in step 4, and then wait for a couple of minutes for it to dry. Then you can repeat the other steps to finish applying the ombre powder nails.
