What are Ombre Nails?

Ombre nails are very on trend right now, and it certainly seems like everyone wants them. The best news is that it doesn’t involve some exotic technique or anything that is going to turn the industry upside down; no, our world can stay upright – for now. Ombre nails are just a a type of layered manicure that speaks to a seamless, blended color gradient or transition (light to dark or vice versa) more than a specific type of product.

Ombre nails can be done with generally any enhancement type (gel, gel polish, traditional lacquer or Dip acrylics) but for this, we’ll speak to traditional liquid and powder acrylic. To give you an idea, think of the traditional and timeless classic: the pink and white. There’s a Pink on the finger, and a White at the free edge with a very sharp and strategically placed smile line separating the two. Now take that clearly defined smile line and blur it so the pink fades gently from the cuticle into white at the tip.

Getting the perfect Ombre effect will take practice. However, since you can do Ombre with all of our powders, we’ve opened a window of opportunity for you to express your originality and talent in making your Ombre uniquely you.
