Ombre Nails — How To Get Shay Mitchell’s Metallic Manicure
The Canadian actress always has the hottest manis around — and this time she really nailed it! On August 22, Shay took to Instagram to share her newest mani with her fans. The 26-year-old actress captioned her photo: “I’m obsessed with these nails!!! Find out how to recreate this look by @stephstonenails on http://www.shaymitchell.com ! Try this new take on the ombré look perfect for any girls night out or date night! We used @esteelauder @gingerandliz@the_new_blacktv & #chanel ! Check it out now!”
To achieve this metallic look, apply two coats of solid black on your nails (try Chanel “Black Satin”). Then use dark grey polish (Estee Lauder “GK Caviar”) to paint a thick stripe down the center of your nail. Next use metallic silver polish (Ginger and Liz “Tuck Me In”) to paint a stroke of silver down the center of the dark grey. Finally, take a white striping brush (The New Black “White Stripes Pro Nail Striping Brush”) and draw a thin white line down the middle of your silver polish.
Seal in all the layers with a nice thick topcoat, and you’ve got the perfect mani for a date night or girls night out!
Let your creative juices start flowing!
