How to do French Ombre nails with gel polish

  1. Prep the nail and apply the Base Gel before curing
  2. Apply a layer of your desired pink such as Angela or 87 – Strawberry French, cure the nail and wipe
  3. Place some White High Pigment Gel onto a Metal Plate and using a Puffer, puff a small amount onto the free edge of the nail to create a French Ombre effect, then cure
  4. Repeat this step 2 or 3 times, curing after each, until you achieve the desired French Ombre look
  5. Seal in with a strengthening layer, such as Soft Gel, cure and gloss to finish

Pro Tip: To add an extra shimmer to any French Ombre, consider a layer of Icy Elsa, perfect for making the white truly stand out.
