Ombré Lip Gloss Nails Are The Latest Twist On A Popular Trend

Nov 12, 2023Nov 12, 2023

No matter the season, glossy nails are always on trend, from Hailey Bieber's iconic glazed donut polish that broke the internet to Nicola Peltz Beckham's milky ombré mani. But what if you're looking for something that's a bit of both?

Lip gloss nails are a gorgeous take on the neutral nail style that combines colors with a glossy finish that shines like lip gloss. We've seen the stunning mani on trendsetting celebrities like Zendaya, who showed off her gorgeous and classic pink lip gloss nails. Combine lip gloss nails with a gorgeous gradient ombré tip, and you have the newest nail trend that we'll be seeing everywhere. Ombré lip gloss nails are a fun, fresh manicure that typically has a creamy, neutral lip gloss-shade base that blends to a darker pink tip. It's the latest nail style that's embracing the pink Barbiecore aesthetic we love, and thankfully, there are plenty of different ways to rock it.

Add a pop of color to your nails with this ultra-feminine hot pink lip gloss mani. Pink ombré nails are a classic and versatile nail style you can't go wrong with. If you're looking for a fresh set that's eye-catching and vibrant, this is the mani for you. To achieve this nail style, start by using OPI's Bubble Bath for the neutral pink base, and layer on OPI's A Kick in The Bud for the hot pink tips.

This multi-colored mani is perfect for those who want to stray from the all-pink aesthetic while still embracing the feminine shade. Play around with bright pastel colors like lavender purple, bubble gum pink, and warm orange to create this stunning blend. To copy this nail style, start with a warm orange base, a bubble gum pink for the middle, and finish with a pastel lavender for the tips. To DIY this look at home, paint the three shades in order onto a makeup sponge and press the sponge to your nail, bouncing the sponge in a horizontal motion to blend the colors for a seamless ombré finish.

While ombré typically refers to a natural gradient effect that gets darker toward the tip of each nail, that's not the only way to interpret the style. Get creative by starting off with a dark shade of pink, and gradually getting lighter with each nail, creating a skittle manicure. Instead of settling for a shade or two of pink, go all out and have fun with different colors throughout your manicure.

Create a lavish, natural ombré look with this pastel lavender lip gloss manicure. Lavender is a soft, versatile color that can be worn in any season and blends beautifully with the neutral, creamy base we often see in lip gloss nails. To recreate this stunning nail look, we recommend starting off with a neutral base of OPI's Half Past Nude and then blending in OPI's Natural Mauvement for elegant, pink-infused lavender tips that are perfect for any occasion.

Get creative with this artistic variation of ombré lip gloss nails. Rather than finishing the tips off with a solid color that's gradually blended, go for an unblended swirl of different pink shades. To recreate these nails, ask your nail technician for a coat of a nude, neutral base. Then, combine a few shades of pink on the top and swirl them in a smudged French tip style. We recommend blending a hot pink with a light, barbie pink for a seamless melt.

Who says every nail has to be identical? If you find the look is too repetitive for your style, try upgrading your ombré mani with dainty nail art. Nail artist Besassynails hand-painted some almond-shaped nails with hearts and sparkles for an ultra-feminine and unique style. For a fun flair on your mani that will have everyone asking about your fresh set, you can use a dotting tool to create white flowers, polkadots, and clouds.

You can't go wrong with the classic ombré lip gloss style. This look features a warm and dark Barbie pink for the tips that gradually blends in with a neutral pink or nude base. We recommend using OPI's Big Bloom Energy or Hotter Than You Pink for warm pink tips that make a statement without going full hot pink. Then, top off the mani with a clear and glossy top coat for the ultimate lip gloss shine.
