Ombre Nail Art

All you will need is nail varnish in the shades red, pink and white, a tooth pick / dotting tool and a small makeup sponge. You may also want to have some cotton buds and nail varnish remover to hand just to tidy up around the nails, as the ombré can get a bit messy!
I used the shades: Illamasqua 'Throb', Graffiti Nails 'Butterfly Pink', and Models Own 'Coconut Cream'. 

Step 1: I began by painting my nails in one coat of white polish, just to make the ombré shades more vibrant.
Step 2: Next, by taking a stripe of the red and pink polishes onto a small makeup sponge and pressing onto the nail, I created the ombre effect.
Step 3: Then I took some white polish onto a toothpick and added small polka dots evenly across each nail.
Step 4: Finally, once everything was dry I added a top coat to each nail just to seal everything into place.
