Fall Ombre Nail Art

By Amy Rigsby | Inspiration

Who doesn't love a little nail art to spice up their fall manicure? If you're looking for a pro nail design that takes minimal effort, then look no further. This easy step by step tutorial using the BeFunky Collage Maker shows you how to create a gorgeous ombre effect with only a makeup sponge. Keep reading for the design and step by step instructions!

  1. You'll want to begin with a clean and dry nail surface. You can cleanse the nail with alcohol to ensure there's no oil on the nail that will affect the polish.
  2. Next, you'll need to choose your polish colors. I wanted a Fall theme, so I chose a deep plum, burgundy, and lighter purple shade. You'll also need a makeup sponge of your choosing where you'll apply the polish.
  3. Now comes the fun part! Simply paint the three shades onto your sponge using a generous amount. I am going from dark to light, but you can use any combination you'd like. To get the desired effect, you'll need to go over your sponged design two to three times to deepen the color on the nail.
  4. After your coats have had a moment to dry, clean up around the edges with a nail brush and then add a topcoat!

So you've finished the perfect ombre nail design and now you want to show others how you've done it. BeFunky's Collage Maker allows you to put together a nail art pictorial that is super easy to follow and stands out among the rest. You'll begin by choosing the amount of boxes you'll need in your collage.


Next, you'll upload the pictures from each step of your process. By dragging and dropping the photos, you can put them in order to show your audience how you've done it.


As an extra touch, try adding numbers to each box so your tutorial is easy to follow. Simply choose the text tool and add numbers in the font and color of your choice. I'm using the Arial font and increasing the font size to 200.


I like to use white numbers and align them in the upper left side of each photo. This makes your collage more share worthy on social media, and gets your awesome nail design seen by many more nail lovers out there!
