17 Knockout Ombre Nail Designs To Inspire Your Own Monochromatic Mani

Ombre has become an increasing popular trend for nails, but up until today, I had no idea what ombre actually meant! It seems like people have using the terms 'ombre' and 'gradient' almost interchangeably when it comes to nail art, but in fact, they are very different designs. Although both designs are beautiful, ombre is actually a transition between colors that belong to the same color family, and gradient is a transition between many colors. Because of this, ombre nails can take on many different forms, from gradient, to color blocking, and everything in between. Personally, I am in love with the ombre trend. It's finally acceptable for me to paint my nails with five different shades of purple! Here are 17 incredibly cute ombre designs to inspire your own monochromatic manicure!
