Nails being painted with ORLY Lift The Veil nail polish

Step 1.


Prep your nails and apply ORLY Bonder Base Coat


Paint all nails with two coats of ORLY Lift The Veil


Top tip: Using a lighter colour near to the cuticle area lets you paint the colour all over the nail, and it's also less noticeable as your nails start to grow!


Step 2.


Paint a horizontal stripe with ORLY Scenic Route in the middle of the nail

Step 3.


Use a sponge to fade up and down the nail. Repeat until you're happy with the coverage


Top tip: you can use any sponge to create your fade, we'd recommend using a makeup sponge

Step 4.


Paint the edge of the nail with ORLY Gumdrop

Step 5.


Using a clean sponge, gently fade up into Scenic Route. Repeat until you're happy with the coverage

Step 6.


Apply ORLY Glosser Topcoat to finish your unicorn ombre nail design


Top tip: Finishing with a glossy topcoat neatens the look of the fade and blends the colours together for a professional finish
