  • How to Do Ombre Dip Nails for a Summer Sunset Look

    Neon Ombre Nail Art Designs | DipWell
    "Hey Siri, what time is the sunset tonight?" Your favorite summer sunset no longer has to be fleeting. Want to learn how to create summer ombre nails that last two weeks or more? Check out our tutorial for this sunset inspired nail art using neon summer nail colors. Get ready for a #nailfie 'cause you're about to have the perfect golden hour sunset right at your fingertips.
    PRO TIP:

    Make sure you thoroughly prep nails to ensure adhesion & long-lasting wear! Push back cuticles, create a rough texture on the nail plate by filing, and sanitize thoroughly.

    Step 1
    • Apply a coat of Step 1 Bond to all fingernails
    Step 2
    • Paint a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip finger into Base & Finish.
    • Carefully paint a second coat of Step 2 Base over entire nail. Then immediately dip at an angle into French White. Repeat for more coverage as needed

    PRO TIP: Avoid getting the product onto cuticles, powder will pick up wherever Base if applied. Also make sure to tap off excess powder in between coats!

    Step 3
    • Use an orangewood stick to gently clean powder from edge of nail, then use fluffy brush to sweep away remaining powder

    PRO TIP: Over applied Base? Happens to the best of us. Make sure to wipe off the orangewood stick in between cleaning fingers to prevent build up ruining a mani.

    Step 4
    • Using a fluffy brush, the shape being comparable to an eyeshadow brush, dab color powder of choice and blend to create a sunset
    • Here we are using GL-23 for the yellow, CL-15 for the orange, and NE-17 for the pink
    • The pigment from the acrylic powder will transfer onto the nail plate without increasing the amount of acrylic powder on the nail

    PRO TIP: Have a piece of lint-free tissue or cloth on hand to clean the ombre brush in between colors

    Step 5
    • Brush Step 2 Base onto the entire nail. Pour Base & Finish powder over the nail, then tap to remove excess.

    PRO TIP: This will help create a more translucent looking mani!

    Step 6
    • Repeat to build your ombre look and until you reach your desired thickness
    Step 7
    • Apply Step 3 Activator onto the nail and allow a few minutes for powder to harden
    • Then use our coarse grit buffer to even out the preferred thickness of the nails and the 240 grit buffer to smooth the nail surface
    Step 8
    • Wash hands and nails thoroughly or wipe with alcohol

    PRO TIP: Make sure nails are completely dry before moving to the next step!

    Step 9
    • Apply another coat of Activator and allow 3-4 minutes for Activator to completely dry
    Step 10
    • Apply a coat of Sealer in quick thin strokes
    • Allow 3 minutes for nails to dry
    • Repeat for super shiny nails

    PRO TIP: Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.

    Finish!
    • Summer may be ending soon, but your mani doesn't know that! This dreamy summer ombre nail look is the perfect mani to match with this (seemingly) endless summer.
