    Ombre designs are the way to go when you’re looking to add style and flair to your manicure. First, ensure you apply a base coat, then start by dipping your nails into a light-colored powder.

    Next, brush off excess powder, then go into a darker color powder.

    Ensure you have essential tools such as a dip powder, a base coat, a top coat, and any extra supplies or embellishments. Start by applying a base coat to clean nails. Then, dip your finger into your dip powder.

    Remember, your entire nail should be covered in powder! Repeat until you have the level of thickness you want.

    Next, shape and file your nails. Then add any nail art designs you want, just as you would with acrylic or gel nails.
