Monochromatic Gradient Nails

Hi everyone!

Today I’m trying out a nail trend that I’ve seen all over Instagram and Pinterest. There are so many examples out there of monochromatic nails with a solid color getting lighter between each nail. I thought it looked so fun and decided to try it myself!

Of course, I had to do blues (partially because I have so many, and partially because blue is my favorite color).

I’m not even 100% sure what to call these nails, but this is a super simple take on the ombré trend and it looks great in so many different colors.


I took some pictures with my FujiFilm Instax camera because I thought the colors matched so well!

Thumb: Essie “Mint Candy Apple”

Index: Color Club “Evolution”

Middle: Island Girl “N1105”

Ring: China Glaze “Saved by the Bluebell”

Pinky: Essie “Caviar Bar”

And here is a rare appearance from my other hand!


If anyone is interested in what I’m wearing, my top and my skirt are from Macy’s, and my belt is from Target.


I really like doing these kinds of photos and creating this kind of content! This is moving a lot more in the direction that I want my Instagram to be. I hope you guys like it as much as me 🙂

What do you think of this ombré nail trend? Let me know in the comments and on my Instagram!
