How to do blended nail art using sponge at home
Hope you have had a lovely weekend. I had to clear lots of piled up stuff from the festival season. That’s when I remember this nail art tutorial, which I have been planning to share with you since quite long. This tutorial is about how to do blended nail art using sponge at home. I still remember the first time I saw blended nail art I thought it was done with some special nail polish that left the mingling effect in a single coat. It was only when I started taking interest in nail art I got to know that the blended nail art can be done using a sponge and your favorite nail colors.
So in this tutorial I will help you attain this nail look at home. To start with, here is the list of tools I have used for blended nail art.
1) Base nail paint.
2) Top nail paint.
3) Desired colored nail paints.
5) Makeup sponge or regular sponge.
6) Nail paint remover.
7) Ear buds.
Step 1– Evenly cut the sponge in a way that its applicator base is just the size of your nails. For precision you can use makeup sponge but as I was out of stock of makeup sponge so I have used regular sponge for this tutorial.
Step 2– In the next step, apply a transparent base nail coat. This helps in preventing nail discoloration. Whenever you use dark nail paint base nail coat is a must.
Step 3– This is the main step of your nail art design, use fresh nail paints for better results. Carefully, apply 2 coats of each nail color on the sponge such that the boundaries of these nail colors overlap. For this tutorial I am blending 2 nail colors but you can blend as many as you like.
Step 4– Once the sponge design is ready, start stamping the nails from base towards top. Ensure that you cover all nail edges. Blend well and do not worry about the nail paint spreading as that will be taken care of in the next step.
Step 5- Take an ear bud, dip it in nail paint remover bottle and remove the extra remover by pressing it hard against the brim of the bottle. Now, carefully clean the outer edges of your nails.
Step 6– Once the cleaning part is done, take the top coat nail paint and apply it on the blended nail art. This will ensure even nail art design and automatically correct minor imperfections.
Now, try the blended nail art yourself using your favorite nail shades and patterns. I would love to hear the compliments that you would receive after flaunting this trendy nail art
