Ahh, ombre. Ombre hair, ombre interiors, ombre nails – we love it all.

Classic ombre begins with a darker colour, subtly and seamlessly transitioning into a lighter colour. 

And with pink nails set to take centre stage on the mani front in 2024, combined with the ombre trend you’re bound to find something that suits your vibe.

So, I’ve saved 35 of THE prettiest ombre nails I’ve seen when scrolling my feeds, so you can screenshot them and take them to your next mani appointment. We’ve also added some tips and tricks to be able to re-create some of these looks from home.

You’re welcome!


35 of the Prettiest Pink Ombre Nail Design Idea


By colour

1. Pink and white ombre nails

This super pretty set was created using The Gel Bottle Inc in shades Biab Tedd, Marshmallow, Matte Top and Extreme Shine, as well as Chameleon Glitter’s Snow White Pigment Powder. Obsessed.

3. Twist on the classic French ombre nails

A modern take on an absolute classic. The ombre French mani we saw during the ‘clean girl’ aesthetic trend in 2023 is here to stay this year (and we are NOT surprised).

4. Pastel pink ombre nails

Now, this is an upgraded take on the ombre, where each nail transitions from white through to pastel pinks and hot pink. This set was created using Glossify.

5. Neon pink ombre nails

Neon pink can be a *bit* bright, but it looks great on all skin tones. If you want to wear this shade without being too ‘out there’, keep your nails short and neat.

6. Ballerina pink gel ombre nails

Mimicking the beautiful hues of ballerina shoes and clothing, this set was created using Pink Gellac in the shade Ballerina Pink (duh).

8. Barbie pink ombre nails with a glass chrome finish

Margot Robbie stepped out of the box at this year’s Golden Globes Awards, wearing a hot pink shimmery dress, a custom by Giorgio Armani Privé – proving Barbiecore nails are here to stay (for now, at least).

10. Bubblegum pink ombre nails

When OPI released these bubblegum pink shades, they blew up. 

If you can’t decide which shade you prefer, go for an ombre selection on each fingertip. Shades, from index to pinkie: Getting Nadi On My Honeymoon, Sugar Crush It, Emflowered, and Shorts Story.

15. Pink and turquoise press-on gel ombre nails

16. Pink and navy ombre nails with glitter strips

This purply pink shade is perfect with navy blue, and the glitter strip adds a *slightly* sci-fi feel. You can easily add a glitter strip to any mani by using a glitter polish and some scotch tape!


PRO TIP: Make the scotch tape less sticky by sticking it to your skin a few times to reduce the risk of it peeling off your base polish, and remove the tape while the glitter polish is still wet!

17. Light pink and black glitter ombre nails with hearts

When I hear “pink and black” my thoughts usually go to neon pinks and emo vibes (if you were around in the 2000s, you’ll know what I mean).

But this barely-there light pink set complete with hearts and glitter is the perfect shade for ombre black.

18. Pink and purple bold ombre nails

There are *so* many shades of purple to choose from, from lilac and lavender to amethyst and indigo, and these bold and bright colours look great on a shorter nail.
