Either as an accent nail or an entire set, two-tone ombré nail designs give you a
sharp contrast look in your colorway. A modern-day classic and a stylish look, this distinct ombré look is a (relatively) easy way to add a lot of class.
This style limits you to
two tones, but you might be surprised at how creative you can get with this. We looked through thousands of talented nail artists and two-tone designs to bring you some inspiration whether you want to try this for yourself or show it to your nail tech.
We’re starting this collection with a classic nail design that everyone loves! We’ve got these beautiful pink to white ombré nails that just fit every single occasion!

Purple is definitely one of my favorite colors because of how classy and soft it looks. This color can also quickly transform it into more of an adorable and charming set. Even with the sharper two-tone style, pastel ombré nails have a smooth and soft look to them.

I actually thought limiting ourselves with a two-tone ombré would take away from the style and make it worse, but the sharp contrast can really work.
