Alessandra Ambrosio: cream-gold ombré nail art at Cannes

The Brazilian Victoria's Secret model made a head-turning entrance on the red carpet for the premiere of Deux Jours, Une Nuit in an off-the-shoulder white gown and high ponytail. We loved her look, but our attention was drawn in particular to the glamorous cream and gold ombré effect on her nails!

Before applying any color to your nails, make sure to always start with a base coat. This is particularly the case when you're using bright colors, which risk staining your nails.

Although Alessandra's nail art only uses cream and gold shades, you should still go for a base coat first, as it gives you an even surface to work on, and makes removal far easier.

When your base coat is dry, apply a white or cream shade. Try to apply the color in one even stroke (as opposed to several small ones), as this gives a smooth surface for your ombré effect.

Now comes the not-so-tricky part!

On a piece of paper, apply a dab of white polish and, next to it, an equal-sized amount of gold. With a tooth pick, mix the two together.

Use a small sponge to dab the mixed colors onto your nail, sarting from halfway up. For an even stronger ombré effect, dab your sponge in gold (only) and dab it onto the tips of your nail.

Finish your look with a top coat, ideally with a shimmery or pearlescent quality. Not only does this add to your ombré effect, but it will protect against chipping.
