Happy Friday! So for today’s ‘Nail File Friday’s’ I bring you some inspiration to do right at home! As a busy mom, I don’t always have time to go out to get my nails done, however I do make the time to do them at home. If you’re a mom too, maybe you can do your nails while your babies are taking a nap or maybe at night after you’ve put them to bed. With these three looks, you can change it up if you’d like, change the color, the design or do the same. You decide!
So, using any polish shades, here I used the Essie – Marshmallow (white), Mod Square (pink) and Wicked (dark). I just wanted to change the polish for the ring finger, keep things simple – or semi simple and easy. The first one is the ‘ombre’ look also known as a ‘gradient’ nail art – all this means is that you’re going to go from one color and blend out with another, using all three colors and a foam wedge or a makeup sponge, once your polish is completely dry, paint some streaks of the Mod Square and the Wicked on the makeup sponge, now pat the sponge on the nail – go over it as many times as you’d like to achieve the ombre look. Next is the easy, basic just Mod Square polish and last is doing the triangle design using the self adhesive nail tape. after you’ve applied both nail polish shades, just take the nail tape off carefully using the cuticle nipper.
And you’re done!

I tried to do something like this over a set of gel nails that were growing out. It didn’t look right, so I covered it with glitter, lol.
Yes! I remember when I used acrylics, when they would grow out, I’d file the top part by the cuticle and paint them, to make them last longer 🙌🏽😊
