DIY at home

To get cum white nails is very simple and you can easily get this look at home without having to visit a nail salon. I have given steps on how to recreate a pink to cum white ombre look with or without using clear nail acrylics. You can buy good-quality clear nail acrylics online from Amazon or stores like Walmart or Target. You can look for these nails in your local drug store as well.

Things you will need:

  • Nail File
  • Nail clipper
  • White nail polish
  • Pink Nail polish
  • Clear nail polish
  • Clear nail acrylics
  • Makeup Sponge
  • Cotton swab
  • Nail polish remover

Step 1: Always have neat nails

Yep, the starting step for any manicure is to wash your hands, cut your nails to the required length and file your nails. If you are going to wear nail acrylics then cutting your nails is very essential, but don’t cut too deeply. File and shape your nails till they are even and smooth. There shouldn’t be any snags in them.

Step 2: Apply nail polish

If you have clear nail acrylics then apply nail glue and wear them on your nails. Do this step on each fingernail and press on each nail until you are sure they have stuck well. You can skip this step if you don’t want to wear nail acrylics. Apply a thin coat of pink nail polish from the cuticle to the tip of your nail.

Step 3: The Ombre Technique

After applying pink nail polish take a makeup sponge and add the white nail polish to the edge of the sponge and the pink polish right below it. Carefully dab the sponge on your fingernails starting from the middle of your nail to the tip.

Step 4: Make your nails bright

Take a clean makeup sponge and add only white nail polish to it and dab your nail tips with this very carefully. This will make your nails look bright and white. This will make the gradient look more prominent and lend opacity to the white nail tips.

Step 5: Getting the neat manicure

Once you are done with the previous step wait for your nails to dry. After you have dried your nails take a cotton swab dip it in the nail polish remover and clean the edges of your nails wherever nail polish has been applied. This will give a neat and precise look to your manicure.

Step 6: Apply a topcoat

To make the gradient look more effective you need to apply a coat of clear nail polish. This adds texture to the shading effect and locks the nail polish in place. It also prevents premature chipping of your manicure. This step is important and doesn’t skip this step.

Your end result should look something like this. If you didn’t get something similar to the image below on your first try please do not fret because you will still be left with a pretty design.
