51 Rainbow Ombré Nail Designs for 2022

These rainbow ombré nail designs add a splash of color and pizzaz to an already incredible look. From the subtle to the incredibly overt, there’s a lot you can do with this look and I’m loving it. Whether you want to cross the entire rainbow on a single nail or maybe you want something to spread out between each finger, this look is so versatile.

We’ve already done a roundup list of rainbow nail art and (more recently) dug deeper into rainbow French tips. These are definitely worth checking out but if you know the ombré look is for you then we have a huge a ton of ideas for you. From the simple looks, you can do yourself (with less polish than you might think) to the more intricate ideas to show your nail tech.

If life gives you lemons, paint them all the colors of the rainbow! 🌈
