Viral Ombre French Manicure
Have you seen it? The viral illusion nails? It's a vertical ombre french manicure design. When I couldn't take my eyes off it, I knew I had to try it!
Heading Into Fall
When I headed to the nail salon to get a fill-in by my nail tech, Mina, I wanted something that would give #fallvibes. What I didn't know is what the design would be. Once I washed my hands and sat down I quickly scrolled through nail inspo pictures on my phone. That's when I noticed I had saved the same viral ombre french manicure three times! I knew this was it! However, the ones I saw were done in neon colors. I wanted something a little more moody. So, I asked Mina if she could create the viral ombre french manicure with brown and tan. She squealed with excitement and I knew Mina was going to make magic on my nails!
Trust The Process
After removing my old manicure, Mina laid down a base of acrylic. She used a soft tan color that looked very natural. Then, Mina worked to create the base layer of ombre with gel polish and a tiny nail art brush. She went over each nail once, cured them with the light, and applied a second layer to create a beautiful ombre effect.
Then, Mina followed the same steps to create the french tip. However this time she reversed the order of the colors. The process took a while, but the end result was so worth the wait! I love how the vertical ombre french manicure creates an optical illusion and almost gives a 3D effect. This manicure is so pretty that I can hardly stop looking at these nails!
