This nail tutorial will feature the essie nail polish, Play Date, a violet colour with tints of blue. The colour combinations I will be using are purple and white to create an ombre effect.
Step 1: Apply one coat of white colour to create a base for the nail art.
Step 2: On a sponge (I used a dishwasher sponger :P), apply a generous coat of the essie nail polish and a generous coat of the white colour.
Step 3: Immediately apply the coats on the nail by using a slight tapping motion instead of one heavy press. Don’t be afraid to be messy as being to careful won’t get a clear ombre effect! Trust me, i’ve tried. Repeat this step with all the nails.
Step 4: Clean the sides by dipping a cotton bud in remover and carefully clean the outsides.
Step 5: Apply a coat of matte nail polish and done! The left image is under bright light and the right image is under normal light.
Ta da! A summer-y look using the essie nail polish Play Date.
