Pink Glitter Ombre Acrylic Nails | Refill and Redesign

Hello guys, this is Evie and welcome back to my blog.  I hope you all are doing great.  In this post, I will show how to do Pink Glitter Ombre Acrylic Nails.  Instead of doing a brand new full set, I decided to do a refill and redesign. This is another great design for Valentine’s Day. I used Pink glitter and Angel glitter from our shop to create this beautiful set of ombre acrylic nails.


So, before we get started, I want to feature this new clear acrylic nail polish stand that I recently received from banggood.com.  First of all, I just love that it goes with my whole clear decor. It’s a major upgrade for me.  It is made of nice quality acrylic and it beats the foam homemade nail polish stand I had before.  My collection of nail polishes have been growing rather quickly lately and the little homemade foam stand I was using was already at capacity due to it’s limited size.  So, needless to say, I was extremely excited to get my hands on this stand.  Now I have a place for all of my little polishes looking like soldiers lined up and ready for nail war!

Removing the Old Design


These are my current nails and they have been on for about two weeks.  I’m going to do a fill in and a design change and get these babies taken care of.

This is the old design I am removing and replacing.


I’m going to be using these very large nippers that I got from gearbest.com.  These nippers are BIG and heavy duty.  I got these because I want to be able to remove large stones and also cut down my nails when it’s time to take them off.  I want to be able to do that with ease.

These nippers just pop my big stone right off with minimal effort.  These make everything so much quicker.  I don’t have to fight with the stones anymore.  I used to have to nip away piece by piece to get stones removed.  But now it just take 1 squeeze and all of the stones pop off.  This is definitely a time-saver.

After getting all of the stones off, i’m going to take my e-file and medium grit safety bit and take the bulk off of the nails.  I want to get them filed down as flat as I can because i’m going to be doing a new design on top.

Creating the New Set of Ombre Acrylic Nails


I’ll be using our Pink and Angel glitter mixes, Clear Acrylic and Naoi Nails Mega White Acrylic

Natural Nail Preperation


I’m going to start off with the Naio Nails Nail-Prep Dehydrator.  I am applying it to my natural nails.

Nail Acrylic Application


I’m filling in my nails using the clear acrylic.  And i’m just doing a very thin layer of clear.  I’ve had some request to do fill ins but I typically don’t do them as I like to have permanent acrylic nail designs and I really love a fresh set.  But I do want to show you guys that have been asking how you can go about doing your own fill in.

Once I’ve filled in all of my nails with clear, i’m taking the while acrylic and applying it to the tip and i’m feathering it backwards to create a nice ombre.  Make this layer is really thin.  I’m trying to make it as thin as possible because I don’t want these nails to be thick.

Glitter and Clear Acrylic Mix Application


Next I pick up some pink glitter. Pick up small bead of clear acrylic and dip it into the pink glitter to apply it to the nails. Carefully work it around the cuticle area and then bring the glitter and clear mix down the nail to create a nice gradient effect.  I just add more glitter wherever I see fit. Try to make it more dense and compact near the cuticle and begin to get more sparse as move down the nail until you get that nice gradient effect.

Once the pink is laid the way I like, I take the angel glitter mix and apply it to where the pink fades out. Overlap it to create a nice transition between the two glitters.  I’m also making sure that this is a thin layer as well.

Once everything is to my liking, I seal it all in by encapsulating the entire nail with clear acrylic.

I forgot to mention that i’m using the #8 Alpha Kolinsky Oval shaped brush. This brush is one my favorite brushes.  It’s one of my go to brushes and just makes me feel like a professional!


Repeat the same process for each nail.

Filing and Shaping Acrylic Nails


This is what the nails look like after the acrylic has set and is ready for shaping and filing.

I like to start off with a hand file on the 100 grit side.  I do this to crispen up the shape and smooth over the nail.

I also like to take my medium grit safety bit and work this around the cuticle area.  This seals off the acrylic, prevents lifting and makes it look super flush.

Gel Topcoat Application and Curing


Now i’m going in with the Poochiez Nails Super Shine Gel Top Coat and applying it to all of the nails.  This is my favorite part because you can really see how all of the glitter comes to life.

I cure the nails in my SunUV LED lamp for 60 seconds.
