Mastering Ombre Nails

Are you a fan of mesmerizing ombre nail art? In today’s tutorial, we share our expertise in creating the perfect gradient nails. Whether you are a nail art enthusiast or a beginner looking to elevate your nail game, follow along as we break down the steps to achieve stunning ombre nails.



Step 1: Begin with a Strong Foundation

To ensure a flawless finish, apply Lechat base gel with Calcium and Vitamin E to protect your natural nails and cure for 60 seconds. This essential step not only provides a smooth canvas but also helps to extend the longevity of your nail art.

Step 2: Lay the Groundwork with White Gel Polish

For the best gradient opacity, apply a white gel polish like Flawless White from LeChat as your base color. This step enhances the vibrancy of the colors applied over it, making them truly pop. Cure the gel color for 60 seconds.



Step 3: Choose Your Colors Wisely

Select three of your favorite gel polish colors to create a captivating sunset look.

Step 4: Create the Gradient Effect

Apply three strokes of your chosen colors, allowing them to overlap slightly. Gently blend using the Gel Ombre Brush the colors over your nail starting at the top and smoothly blending through all three colors and cure for 60 seconds, repeating the process for a second layer to achieve the best opacity. Utilize the gel ombre brush to fill in white spaces for a seamless transition.



Step 5: Perfect the Look

Cure the second layer for 60 seconds. To complete the look clean up around the cuticle if necessary.

Step 6: Finish with Finesse

Finish off with LeChat No Wipe Gel Topcoat to blend the gradient seamlessly and add a beautiful shine to your design. This final step enhances the overall appearance and seals in your masterpiece.
