Finally Master an Ombré Manicure
Manicurist Danielle Candido with Morgan Taylor taught us how to finally nail the DIY ombré backstage at Tanya Taylor. Tear a corner of your makeup sponge off (the soft, fine ones will give you a delicate fade; the ones that are more porous will give you a more intense fade). Then, paint your polish directly onto the sponge, and dab it once on another surface. Next, gently press it into the nail at a 45 degree angle — never put it flat onto your nail or you'll simply get a straight line. Continue up the nail until you have your desired design.
