Ombré French tips

While classic French tip nails show off crisp and clean lines, these ones soften the look with an easy ombré that gradually fades from dark to light, from the bottom to the top of the nails.

Unlike the ombré French tips that we described earlier, these nails boast a gradient that changes from tip to tip. The thumb wears the darkest pink, and the pinky the lightest, pastel pink hue.

Black and pink are a stunning combination of sweet and edgy. Flaunt a style that’s somewhere in the middle with this unique French tip nail design. The curved French tip silhouette hugs the side and bottom of some nails, instead of outlining only the nails’ tips.
