25 Pink Ombré Nail Ideas To Elevate Your Pretty Manicure

Ombré nails, aka gradient nails, are one of the most sought-after designs among manicure lovers. If I had to guess, considering my 30 plus years of experience with nail design, I’d say that ombrés are such a hit because they look like art without being too flashy while keeping a sophisticated aesthetic. Does it make sense to you? I mean, once you look at someone with an ombré set you can tell that person cares about her manicure. So, in this post, I focused on gathering the most popular and pretty pink ombré nails because pink has been my favorite color lately. I just moved to a new house and I caught myself looking for everything pink: bedding, dinnerware, glassware… Therefore, I’m redirecting my pink obsession to nails.

You’ll find the best ombré nail ideas to save on your favorites year-round. I grouped the inspos according to the design as follows: GLITTERALL PINKHOT/SUMMERFRENCH TIPSCHROMEWITH BLUE.

There are two ways you can tackle the ombré/gradient look. The first is a subtle monochromatic scale using different shades of the same color, one on each finger. The second, and most classic way to ombré, is to use different colors to create the ombré (shade) effect on each nail.

I hope you enjoy them!

Glitter nail art is a triple F: festive, flashy, and fun. Of course nail artists go to town creating the most amazing designs when they combine glitter with ombré. Here are some of the most beautiful pink sets.

This design looks complex to achieve but it allows a lot of freestyling, after all, the “loose” glitter on top adds the party effect without asking for precision.
