How to execute a nude to black ombre nail design

Ombre nails are a thing of beauty, but they’re also perfect for those times you can’t decide between two colors. What’s fun about this trend is that you can choose two complementary shades, or rebel against the norm and pick two pigments that clash. Still not sure where to begin? Just watch this quick video for some eye-opening tips.
Get even more creative by playing around with your transition line when you begin your manicure. You can opt for a speckled look, or position your lines vertically or horizontally. You can even add an assortment of gems and rhinestones for added pizzazz.
