Creating an ombre nail art manicure is simple with this easy tutorial involving three different colored iridescent polishes and a foundation sponge. The sponge applique allows one to effectively apply the remaining polishes in as a fading feature. This nail art falls under the overly obsessed ombre infatuation sparked in the beauty arena within recent months.

Begin the manicure by applying a orangey bronzed color to the nails. Paint a maximum of two layers and leave to dry before the next round of color. With the second darker color, apply a few strokes to the tip of the foundation sponge and blot half way on the nail; leave to dry. With the last color, choose a light iridescent green shade and apply to the other side of the foundation sponge. Blot the last color on the tips of the nails and set to dry.
