With a short finish, this set can be done on natural short nails or could be amped up with a set of longer nails. The soft pink and white fade is almost like an ombre-style French mani – classic and chic!

    Black and White Ombre Nails

    Black ombre nails – classic, moody, and elegant. This set of black and white ombre nails takes this to task quite literally. With both hands using a nude base, one hand offering white and the other offering black, it feels like a yin-and-yang-esque look.

    White Ombre Coffin Nails

    Coffin ombre nails – classic, baddie nails at their coolest. These sparkly, gem-encrusted white ombre coffin nails take it to the next level. With a dramatic length and tons of glitz, you could call these nails over the top, but thanks to their white color, they remain elegant and cool.

    Red and White Ombre Nails

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – nails, that is! We love this gorgeous set of red and white ombre nails. It’s festive, with a gorgeous snowflake accent that features a shiny gemstone center on the accent nail. Throw in a shiny gel-like red glitter nail alongside minimal white ombre nails, and you have perfectly frosty and cheery Christmas nails.

    Zohna Tip

    Apply cuticle oil daily to keep your digits looking fresh and hydrated, and help make nails healthier.

    Blue and White Ombre Nails

    Brrr! Is it getting frosty in here, or are these nails cooler than ice? We simply adore these cool blue ombre nails for their polar-like finish of pale and deep, glittery blue accent nails. You could easily achieve this look at home with a few shades of the right color nail polish.

    Try blue and white ombre nails just like these with the help of shades like:

    Clear Ombre Nails

    We’ll be transparent on this one – we are obsessed with these clear ombre nails! Without any color, you’d think these nails would be boring or basic, but they are anything but! The dramatic length of these nails is perfect for showcasing the glittery, see-through look this clear ombre nails look offer.

    Pink and White Ombre Nails With Glitter

    We love feeling girly and glam sometimes. And what better way to make that happen than with a set of pink and white acrylic ombre nails with a dash of glitter? With numerous shades of pink, a variety of glitter, and two different ombre directions, plus a high-shine finish – these nails are a totally amped-up look, and we, for one, are here for it.

    Nude and White Ombre Nails

    There are times to go big or go home, and then there are times to keep it simple and laid-back. And with these nude and white ombre nails, you’re definitely fulfilling the latter category. A minimal, low-shine finish combined with a coffin shape makes for an elegant and chic look.

    Black to Clear Ombre Nails

    Who doesn’t want nails that are perfectly on point? We do! And we love these black-to-clear ombre nails with a stiletto shape for that reason. These dramatic, cat-like claws are razor-sharp and here to make a statement. The shiny, vinyl-like finish is the perfect way to round out this look.

    Clear Glitter Ombre Nails

    Shining bright like a diamond is easy with these clear glitter ombre nails. These nails may be transparent – but it’s clear they make an impact with their gorgeous glitter ombre finish. We also love that the almond shape could work on natural or acrylic nails.

    Just remember if you are shaping your natural nails, to work your file in one direction, smoothing a rounded shape that is slightly narrowed at the top.

    Nude to White Ombre Nails

    When you want a French mani but don’t want to go boring or basic, try this set of nude to white ombre nails instead. They are long – even kind of extra – yet they feel refined and stylish thanks to the minimalist colors and finish. Just keep in mind that this length can be tricky to navigate for those with hands-on jobs or those who like to get messy in the kitchen.

    Purple and White Ombre Nails

    Lovely lavender! Perfect plum! We love purple and these purple and white ombre nails are the perfect way to showcase your adoration of this hue. With a short, natural length and rounded square finish, we think these would be the perfect ombre nails to try at home.

    Pick up the following shades to get this look at home:

    White Gold Ombre Nails

    Got a special event coming up? Maybe some prom nails are in your mani’s future? Why not give these classic white gold ombre nails a try? We love seeing a set of short, natural nails that still rock a glam look, proving you don’t have to get your drama from the length of your nails. The chunky gold glitter mixed with the fine glitter coming up from the cuticle is ideal for special occasions.

    White Glitter Ombre Nails

    We love the nude and white glitter ombre nails pairing. It’s a tried-and-true classic, and it works for any scenario or time. Plus, with round square nail shapes, it’s perfectly simple and practical for everyday life. But a hint of glittery overspray makes this otherwise simple look shine bright.

    Lilac and White Ombre Nails

    Purple ombre nails come in all shades and combinations – but nothing is more subtle and feminine than this soft hue paired with white. This set of lilac and white ombre nails has something for everyone. With glitter, gems, 3D flowers, matte finish, and ombre – these nails are here to make a statement, and we, for one, are living for it!

    Grey and White Ombre Nails

    Don’t be mad – be matte! These grey and white ombre nails are perfectly muted and matte and make for a subtle punch of drama. Throw in the polished length and almond shape, and you have a set of classy AF nails.

    Want to get a mattified look at the home? Try a matte top coat like this one from OPI. And remember, more than one coat may be needed to achieve a perfect matte look, but don’t forget to allow time to dry between each coat, or you’ll end up with a smudgy look than a matte one.

    Ombre White Tip Nails

    What’s on the tip of your tongue when you see these nails? For us, it’s fashionable and fancy! We love this set of ombre white tip nails from their tippy top all the way to the cuticle. With a subtle fade from white to nude, these nails are almost French manicure-like. And what’s more wearable and dainty than a French mani?

    Turquoise and White Ombre Nails

    Turquoise reminds us of the tropical waters of a paradise island, and this set of turquoise and white nails sends us the right to the beach. There’s a blend of deeper, more blue turquoise paired with a brighter teal that feels almost airbrushed, leaving it feeling like the gradient of the waves washing up on shore. Now that’s a way to make a splash!

    White and Gold Ombre Nails

    If all that glitters is gold, then these nails certainly shine! We love the flecks of flaky gold on the accent nail, paired with the simple white ombre nails in the rest of the set. Plus, using a transparent nail as your accent definitely makes a unique statement and proves you don’t always need color to make an impression!


    • How to Do Pink and White Ombre Nails

      Wondering how to get the perfect set of pink and white ombre nails? It’s as easy as a few simple steps at home.

      Before you get started, you should gather your materials to make sure you have everything you need at your fingertips:

      • Base coat
      • Nail file
      • Nail buffer
      • Pink nail polish of your choice
      • Opaque white nail polish (try)
      • Cosmetic sponge or old toothbrush
      • Top coat
      • Cotton swabs
      • Nail polish remover

      Now that you’ve gotten your materials assembled, it’s time to formulate your perfect pink and white ombre nails look:

      1. The first step to doing pink and white ombre nails is to prep your nails by filing and buffing your nails.
      2. Next, set yourself up for success by applying a base coat.
      3. The next step is to apply each color separately, one at a time. Gently drop one color onto the nail near the cuticle and one nearer the tip of your nail.
      4. While wet, use a small cosmetic sponge or an old toothbrush to tap and blend them together until they’re even gentle. Try not to drag the colors into each other, but rather dab and dot their color together to meld it perfectly.
      5. Once both polishes are dry, apply the top coat as usual and clean up any leftovers on the edge of your nail with a cotton swab and nail polish remover.
    • Can Ombre Nails Be Filled?

      Can ombre nails be filled? It depends on how your nails were created in the first place and how much of a fill you want. For acrylic nails with a small fill needed, your nail tech can fill the color closest to your cuticle (the part closest to where you’ll see it). This should be fairly simple, but it depends on whether you have had other fills of the same color, how many shades of color are in your ombre nail, and if you have designs.

      For some nail formulations, such as dip powder nails, it may be more complicated than others to do an ombre nails fill, so discuss which makes the most sense for your nails with your manicurist.

      Keep in mind that traditional acrylic fills often mean your nails have the color removed completely, then your nails are filed, and then the polymer is applied to your nail to fill the gap. Finally, more color is then applied. So a fill may entail a quick patch-up or a full re-do, depending on your technician’s technique.

    • How to Do White Ombre Nails With Design

      If you want to try something different with your nails, consider adding some design to your white ombre nails.

      Here are some tips on how to do white ombre nails with design:

      • Apply a base coat before doing anything else, then apply your white ombre nails as normal.
      • Next, apply your nail design. Whether you want to apply a flower, geometric, or abstract design, make sure you have the right tools.
      • Dotting tools of different sizes and various nail brushes can help make your design look flawless.
      • You can also add gemstones and glitter with brushes or tweezers to make a gorgeous set of custom ombre nails with design.
      • Make sure to let each coat dry before applying the next.
      • Then apply a top coat for protection.
