What are the most popular ombre nails?

There are a few trends in the ombre nail design, which were popular in 2019 and are going to carry over to 2020. Certain color mixes and shades are always going to be more popular than others. So, here are the ones, which are taking center stage:

  • French ombre nails. This new twist on the old french manicure classic is really elegant. It is also extremely versatile. This almost nude design can be used for everyday, for the office and, what’s more, even for your wedding day. It is perfect and classy. What more could you possibly want from your manicure?
  • Pink ombre nails. Pink will always be fashionable. It has always been a statement-making color, which brings lots of fun and good mood. It can be paired with white, blue or grey for a timeless look. Furthermore, you can use all shades of pink for an eye-catching nail design.
  • Blue ombre nails. Classic blue was just named the Color of the Year by Pantone, so, needless to say, it will be very trendy this year. Shades of blue, or mixture of blue with white, pink or even purple can be a fun combination.
  • Glitter ombre nails. Glitter, glitter everywhere! If you are a lover of this shiny look, the good news is you can pair glitter with almost anything. What’s more, you can just add the glitter on top of your chosen colors and you will have a perfect manicure. White bottom and glittery top is something your nails must try out this year.
  • Red ombre nails. Another timeless, classic and elegant look. Once again, you can pair up different shades of the color. If you are feeling adventurous, though, don’t be afraid to try pairing red with black. The effect is stunning.
  • Nude ombre nails. Nude will always be fashionable. And, although, some may think of it as a safe choice (after all, you can never go wrong with a shade of nude), it can be really beautiful. Pair it with glitter, gold, or white for an elegant look. If, however, you are thinking of something more effective, then nude, mixed with neon yellow is your option.
  • Rainbow ombre nails. Every color of the rainbow on your fingers. Why not? It is the perfect summer manicure!

How to do ombre nails without the help of a professional

There are a few ways to recreate the ombre look yourself. Here are two of the easiest:

  1. With a sponge. First, apply your base coat and base color. Then, grab a makeup sponge and apply the colors you want on it. Grab the sponge and start dabbing it on your nails. Remove the excess around the nail, apply top coat and you are all set.
  2. With a Q-tip. Apply the base coat, then the base color of your ombre design. Grab your second color and apply it to the top of the Q-tip. Then dab the top of your nail with the Q-tip until the colors mix.
