Hype Nails: Layer Shades To Get The Ombre Look At Home

Hype Nails: Kiss Gradation How To While we all love our hair, our nails deserve to be just as fierce! Celebrity nail artist and educator Angel Williams shows us how to layer shades to create a faded ombre manicure that’s sure to turn heads, using Kiss’ three-step Gradation kit. Each kit comes with special blending polishes and instructions.

  1. Apply two coats of Step 1 polish to all ten nails.
  2. Let the nails dry for 2 minutes.
  3. Apply one coat of Step 2 polish only on the tip of the nail, approximately 1/3 of the nail. Complete one finger at a time on each hand.
  4. Before Step 2 polish is dry, apply Step 3 polish on 1⁄2 the nail to blend colors.
  5. Let nails dry completely.
  6. Repeat the steps on the other hand.

*Note: be sure to use gradation polishes in the correct order: 1, 2 and 3. Photo Credit: Eric Von Lockhart
