If you’re not bold enough to drastically change your hair color, nail color is the next best thing. Ombre nails actually work two ways, you can start with a dark shade at the cuticle and blend into a lighter color in the nail bed like with hair, or you can reverse it and start out with a lighter polish hue and go darker at the tips.
The fun thing about ombre nails is that the color doesn’t strictly have to be applied horizontally. Instead of just letting the colors gradually blend in to one another straight across, you can play with different shapes and swirl patterns to make your fingers stand out even more. This trend really looks good with a super high-gloss polish over top, or you can also add sparkles for a shimmery finish.
