Top 5 Best Ombre Nail Kits of April, 2019

Be Unique … Make the Ombre Nail Your Own

The ombre style is still bang on trend in hair fashions, but it’s now moving onto nails. Gradient colors can give a really pretty look, the color schemes are endless and it suits any style of nails.

The more usual application is for a light color on the top of the nail gradually blending into a darker color toward the tip. Getting the perfect effect can take time and practice for the DIYer, but there’s a lot of room for originality and making your ombre design unique.

Here, I take an honest look at some of the best selling ombre products.

1) Ombre Color Changing Thermal Nail Polish

What Makes It Great

The color is affected by the temperature of the surroundings – cold weather, sunlight, cold or warm water, or even holding a hot or cold drink. When cold, this glitter laden polish is a deep black but changes to various shades of grey through to clear as it warms up. If you have long nails, the base will be light grey and the tips will be blacker, creating the perfect ombre look. I’ve had great fun experimenting with this color and it really does work, and keeps working until the nails come off – in my case, they lasted for over two weeks.

Where It Could Be Improved

The odor upon opening the pot is very strong, but this soon fades, thankfully.

The Final Verdict

For an ombre effect with no effort whatsoever, this is awesome, but for its color changing ability, this is magic!


 

2) TOODOO Ombre Nail Brush & Sponge

What Makes It Great

This pretty, nicely balanced pen holds a variety of interchangeable sponge heads, which are included in the pack. These make creating the ombre look easy, and can also be used for dotting, stripes and other nail art designs. The heads are durable, can be reused, and are non-deforming. I really like these, and have made full use of them several times over.

Where It Could Be Improved

A couple of the heads were a little hard to change, but with gentle pressure, the pen and the sponge separated.

These sponges from Toodoo are great for creating the ombre style on your nails. Easy to clean, reuseable, and long lasting, this set of sponges would make a great gift for a nail art fan, or for yourself.

3) Fairy Glo Color Changing Ombre Polish Kit

What Makes It Great

I love this Fairy Glo kit. The colors are so pretty and bright, with the ability to change color with temperature rises or drops. They go on easily, cure quickly and last for up to two weeks. I have bought this lovely set for several friends (and more for myself) and everyone loves it.

Where It Could be Improved

You do need to apply a gel topcoat, otherwise they remain tacky. But I tend to do that anyway, so this isn’t a problem

5) China Glaze Ombre Polish Kit

What Makes It Great

The colors included in this Ombre kit compliment each other perfectly, enabling you to create the perfect effect. They glide on smoothly and with some practise, are easy to fade into each other. It did take a while for me to master, but I followed the instructions in this kit, and got the hang of creating the perfect fade.

Where It Could Be Improved

The darker shades needed several coats to create a nice, even color.

If you’ve never created your own ombre nails, this kit is a great place to start to build up your confidence.
