HOW TO OMBRE WITH CHROME PIGMENT POWDER


Kirsty: Hi everybody, I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails. In this video, I’m gonna show you how to do a Chrome Ombre. See, I don’t think we’ve done it before and I think you’d like to know how. So, I’m gonna be working on a Tip. Now, when people do Chrome, they kind of think that they’ve got to put black on as the background, and yeah you can do but it’s not a necessity, it’s not essential. So, I’m gonna show you without the black on. So, we wanna work on a shiny surface. If you were doing this on a natural nail, you would put the base coat on first, but I’m going straight on with the Urban Graffiti Top Coat. Now, this is a tacky-free. Kirsty: ** say that again.
Adam: A tacky-free? Kirsty: Yeah! Tacky tacky. Kirsty: Now, this top coat doesn’t have a sticky layer and it’s perfect for Chrome. I’m gonna pop that into the lamp. If you try to chrome over the top of a top coat that has a sticky layer, it won’t work, it’ll just smudge, move around and go horrible. So, you need a Tack-free top coat. If you try to use a normal, you know, tack, one that’s got a tacky layer and you remove the tacky layer, if you remove that inhibition layer and then try to rub it in, you may still have trouble as well. So, it’s best to do it this way. So, we’ve got the gold and the copper. I’m gonna go into the gold first and I’m going to start to burnish this in. Adam: Remember when I thought that was a fake word?
Kirsty: Yeah, burnish is actually a real word. Adam: Just thought you were making stuff up. Kirsty: And we’re gonna go down about a third, would you say that is? Kirsty: That’s a third?
Adam: Yes. maybe a tag over Kirsty: A tag.
Adam: A tag. Kirsty: A tag. And then, you want to knock off any excess off your little applicator. And then you’re gonna burnish in and then when you get to about here, we’re gonna turn it over, so we have nothing on the applicator and we’re just rubbing in anything that’s left there, yeah. So, we’ve already got quite soft Ombre already. And then, we’re gonna go into the copper. We’re gonna burnish. I do love this copper. Tap off the excess, burnish again. Then as you meet that colour that’s already there, you gonna turn it over and then you’re gonna rub. Rubba-dub-dub! ** a little bit more. I’m just gonna use what’s on the actual applicators, so I’m not reapplying, just rubbing the rest in. Now that’s your first layer. And then we’re gonna top coat again. We want it to be really strong colour. And don’t worry too much about that first layer being perfectly ombre’d. It’s the second layer that needs to be perfect. And this time, I’m gonna go copper. ** the colour now. Wow! Turn it over and you’re gently going to blend what’s already on the nail. Just rubbing the rest in. And you’ll get the blend because you’re just rubbing the particles that are already on the nail. You’re not adding any… and burnishing in what’s already on the nail, you’re not adding any extra. Just gonna dust off any excess. So, if you struggle to get it this nicely blended, I’ll show you another way how you can build the colour as well. So, if you think, “oh my God, it’s not perfect!” You can do another layer of top coat. So, I’m gonna cure that. We’re gonna do it in two different layers now. So, before we did it in one layer, we did the bronze, well the copper and then the gold, so now, so this is if you really struggle to do it, because it’s an easy way. I mean, I think it’s easy to do it in one but not everybody does, so you can try this way as well. So you’re gonna do the copper and go not quite halfway. You’re still gonna do the technique of brushing it over like this, but you can be less…what’s the word? Doesn’t have to be so perfect. So, as you get halfway, you’re gonna then start to blend in, yeah. So, you’re gonna go higher than halfway. And then you’re gonna top coat again. So, it’ll all be nice and sandwiched between the layers. Everything will stay on because it’s all sealed. So, we’re gonna cure that. And on the next layer, we’re gonna overlap with the gold. So, instead of sort of merging them together, we’re actually going to overlap. So, now you can see how it comes up to about here. We’re gonna go in with the gold and we’re gonna overlap. We’re still gonna turn this over. And we’re turning it over to take the tiniest amount of the gold down over on top of the bronze. So, you can see how that blends perfectly. So, overlapping them, you’ll get that transition colour in the middle where they merge. So, we’re gonna top coat this now, just make sure you have got the excess off. Let’s seal this in. Pop that in the lamp. So, you can see you get gorgeous blends. So, a lot of people struggle to do Ombres, even if it’s acrylic or gel polish. Doing it with chrome is another way to do it. It’s a little bit easier. Less ** time-consuming and even if you think you’ve made a mistake, you can always take it off very easily. So, there you are, guys. Hope that’s helped you in some way.
