How to Achieve the Fall Ombre Look
There are two ways you can go about creating the fall ombre nails design – either do it at home, or your local nail salon. The second option is best for some of the more intricate designs that involve polish colors that you might not have at home, or are hard to find at home.
The nail expert will be also able to tell you the trending colors to choose and include some ombre nail art as part of the design.
If you have a bit of experience and would like to do this at home, that’s certainly an option as this is one of the easier nail designs to do as a DIY.
The tricky bit is to get the transition between the two colors right, and make it look seamless and smooth. For top tips from experts, you can follow one of the video tutorials from youtube we have shared below.
If you prefer a more simple approach, you can look at one of the examples below which does the ombre look but by using the ombre colors across your nails, not a transition within a single nail shape. That’s much easier to achieve at home, and you still get a bit of a gradient in your manicure.
The trending colors for fall nails and their combinations include:
- all shades of orange blended with white or more rusty dark brown tones
- burgundy tones mixed with nude nails or pink tones
- earthy shades of brown and dark chocolate
- adding sparkles to your ombre nails
- neutral shades combined with ombre nail tips or french tips
- red ombre nails with either neutral base or pink base
- white ombre nails with earthy tones
- mustard nail tones
- purple ombre nails
