The Cutest Lavender Ombre Nails

There’s no doubt about it, lavender is one of the chicest colors of the spring season. The fresh air, warm winds, and colorful flowers dotting our lawns are all there to prove it. But our favorite part of spring is the manicures… specifically lavender ombre nails!

Be sure to look through everything! There’s a mani for everyone.

What are ombre nails?

A lavender ombre manicure is created using a color gradient. Usually, the tip of the nails is a lighter shade of lavender and then slowly transitions to a deeper color of purple at the base of the nail.

Or, sometimes this gradient is reversed and the nail tips are dark and then transition to a lighter lavender shade toward the base.
