Spring is just around the corner, which means new outfits, new hairstyles, and new nails! One style that has taken over TikTok is the French ombré nail design. A modern twist on the classic French manicure, this design is known for its signature pink-nude base that fades to white tips.
The French ombré can go with anything you wear, and it provides a blank canvas to add nail art, too! There are so many ways to add your own personal style, but in case you need some inspiration, here are five French ombré nail designs that you should save for your next visit to the nail salon.
- Pastel Ombré Nails
What better way to welcome spring with some pretty pastel colors? Lavender, pastel pink, and sky blue embody the spring season and pair nicely with any floral look. These pink ombré nails from @lightslacquer vary from light pink to hot pink, and can easily make your outfit pop. Looking for something different? Try these pastel green ombré nails that are sure to turn heads. A pastel ombré nail design is the perfect way to ring in the spring!
- Flower Ombré Nails
Of course, adding flowers is perfect for springtime. Try picking a nail for one flower to go on, or have multiple flowers all over! For a classic look, you can add nail art of a white flower, like this design from @luxurybylizzyy. For a more cute look, try adding small 3D flowers like @anas_nails_ did. Putting rhinestones as the center of the flower adds a hint of sparkle, too!
- Glitter Ombré Nails
This one is for my pink lovers! You can never have too much sparkle in your life. Doing a pink glitter French ombré like @liliakazakova is a great way to add something extra to the standard pink-nude base and white tip design. You can even make the tips glittery, too, like this silver design. Can you imagine the shine when the light catches your nails?
- Glazed Ombré Nails
Taking one trend and adding it to another trend? Yes, please! Manicure lovers all remember the viral glazed donut nails, but these French glazed ombré nails take it to a whole new level. You can try this glazed look with a chocolate or a soft pink, too!
- Vertical Ombré Nails
The vertical ombré, or reverse ombré, is another new take on the modern French manicure. Rather than gradually fading the colors horizontally, this design turns it on its head. You can take any two colors, put them side by side, and create a gradient between those two. This purple vertical ombré even has reverse-colored tips! It’s totally mesmerizing, and a great way to pair complementary colors.
This list should give you plenty of inspiration for your trip to the nail salon. The French ombré is great for the everyday look, but also for adding new elements to it. Try incorporating a few of these designs in your next visit!
