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.
35 of the Prettiest Pink Ombre Nail Design Idea
1. Pink and white ombre nails
2. Pink and nude ombre nails
Send us your fave nudes (not those kind of nudes).
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).
7. Peach and pink ombre nails
Feeling like a lil fruit salad, who remembers those sweets are they still around? Created using The Gel Bottle Inc in the shades Madonna and Peach Daiquiri.
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).
9. Baby pink ombre nails with floating French tip
Baby pink is a classic, mix it up with some ombre and a floating Frenchie – set to be everywhere in 2024.
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.
11. Hot pink ombre nails with shimmery glitter
Baby pink? Check. Hot pink? Check. Shimmery glitter? Check. The perfect mani does exist.
12. Rose quartz ombre nails
Pink and white swirl together in an ombre design that looks like a beautiful rose quartz.
13. Coral ombre nails with gold flakes
There are *so* many shades of coral, but we love this slightly pinky-orangey shade with gold flakes.
14. Pink and blue long ombre nails
This long and strong ombre set was created using Eclair Nails shades.
15. Pink and turquoise press-on gel ombre nails
These semi-cured stickers from MoYou London are the perfect way to recreate the ombre trend from home – and they last for weeks!
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.
19. Pink and lilac chrome ombre nails with celestial stars
Pink ombre starbursts with some gorgeous Anona chrome, which you can buy online from Magpie Beauty.
20. Pink and burgundy ombre nails
This is the best jelly formula! The polishes are so easy to blend without using a sponge.
21. Pink and lavender mermaidcore sparkle ombre nails
We love this mermaidcore pink, sky-blue and lavender set which is easy to DIY at home! You can use a sponge to press on the gradient colour and top it off with a shimmer top coat for a reflective finish.
22. Pink and orange ombre nails
Created using Death Valley Nails nail polish, the amazing set by Melanated Mani shows us that pink and orange ombre can be sheer and chic.
23. Grey and pink ombre nails
These muted tones are the perfect nod to the ombre trend.
24. Pink and red ombre nails
Tone down the pink with some berry shades, taking the ombre from left to right for another modern twist.
25. Pink and yellow ombre nails
This set is *sure* to brighten up your day – the perfect shades for spring and summer.
26. Pink and green ombre nails with 3D flowers and shapes
Using moulds and jelly glaze to create this acrylic nail masterpiece, this set is perfect for the 3D nail trend I’ve been seeing all over social media lately.
27. Pink and lime green ‘watermelon’ ombre nails
We’ve been seeing loads of variations on the watermelon nails trend! To DIY, use a sponge with green, pink and white polishes to create the ombre effect, and add some black dots for the seeds. Easy peasy, watermelon squeezy.
28. Nude pink and neutral brown ombre nails
A nude pink nail is perfect with brown for a neutral-toned mani.
29. Silver and pink holographic ombre nails with stars and gems
Want to know how to do these nails at home? We’ve got you covered with our step-by-step guide to doing a holographic mani.
30. Chrome gold and baby pink ombre nails
Two of the prettiest shades together. This gold and pink ombre mani is ultra feminine.
31. Coffin pink acrylic ombre nails
Coffin nails are the *perfect* shape for cool nail art and designs, and these long acrylic ombre nails are no exception.
32. Almond pink aura ombre nails with stars and gems
Aura nails are another take on ombre, with a darker or lighter colour in the centre that seamlessly transitions as it reaches the cuticle and tip. Truly mesmerising.
33. Square nails with pink ombre butterfly nail art
To recreate this look, start with a nude pink shimmer base and some stick-on butterfly nail stickers – or ask your nail tech for some pink and white ombre insects like the ones below! So. Cute.
34. Stiletto ombre nails
These natural stiletto nails combine the ombre trend with the most recent ‘wet look’ nail movement. This set was created using Apres Nail polishes.
35. Subtle pink 3D round ombre nails
This subtle pink set is another incoming trend – 3D nail art that gives a jelly-like illusion. This mani was also created using Apres Nail polishes!
Pink is *officially* still on our radar, and we predict it will be for the rest of 2024!
Whether you want to go full Barbiecore, you prefer a subtle set, you love bold and bright, or you’re partial to glitter, the ombre nail trend has something for us all.
We love to see an inclusive trend!
