Two classic nail colors, burgundy and cherry red, become one in this glossy, almond-shaped mani. Try Essie Nail Color in Berry Naughty ($8.50, ) and Russian Roulette ($9, ) for a similar combination.
How mesmerizing is this manicure? It's achieved by using a holographic chrome powder ($8, ) over a beige base.
This pretty, pink-to-white ombre gets a magical upgrade with a textured finish made to look like unicorn horn swirls on just the ring fingers.
Perfect for winter, this ombre combination features a sheer, shimmery white blending with an icy blue. Try China Glaze Nail Laquer in White Cap ($7,) and Too Yacht to Handle ($7,) for a similar effect.
Ombre doesn't always have to go from base to tip, as proven by these accent nails, which feature a gradient light purple from left to right.
A touch of gold chrome nail powder ($8.50,) built up from the middle of the nail to the tips adds a glamorous touch to bare or nude-polished nails.
This glossy, black-to-blue ombre looks incredible on shorter, rounded nails. Try Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Pat on the Black ($7, ) and Blue My Mind ($6.50, ) to get the look.
The transition from off-white to almost-black in this manicure is made all the more interesting thanks to ever-so-tiny speckles that make the black look more diffused.
This clever take on ombre involves a vertical gradient effect on just the middle finger to transition from a lighter shade on the pinky and ring fingers to a darker one on the pointer and thumb.
Just a touch of ombre at the tips of these nails convey the feeling of a sunset, perfectly complementing the tropical nail art accents on the ring fingers.
Instead of opaque shades, trying layering translucent ones for an almost ethereal ombre. We recommend Zoya Professional Lacquer in Loretta ($9, ) and Essie's Pink Glove Service ($9, ).
A glossy ombre is gorgeous, but matte looks just as amazing, especially when there's only a slight shift between the shades.
Why do just two shades? If you've got super-long nails, there's room for more! This blend of five pastel shades, topped off with Sinful Colors' Hazard ($2, ), is the ultimate ombre manicure.
