Whether you’re a lover of detailed patterns or solid colored nails, grey is a hard color to mess up which makes it so fit for home manicures.
One of the most common ways to see a grey manicure styled is an ombre effect. An ombre nail involves two nail polish colors on each nail with a gradual transition between them.
Grey is one of the best colors to create an ombre with for multiple reasons.
Firstly, a gray ombre can be completely monochrome with only differing shades of grey, or it can be paired with almost any other color to create an especially popping ombre nail.
A grey ombre nail, in particular, shows a certain sense of sophistication and mystery.
Using an ombre effect to style an otherwise sort of plain manicure is the perfect way to achieve a fun style without it being too showy or bold.
A great way to mix up and personalize a grey ombre nail is by changing the angle at which the ombre transitions from one color to the other.
The most common ombre nail has a typical horizontal ombre – it’s classic and satisfying to look at, but some people choose to mess around with vertical or diagonal ombres.
This still gives you the interesting and mature look of the grey ombre but adds a little extra detail and personality to the manicure.
Some salon goers also choose to add a gem or six to their grey ombre nails.
Adding a cluster of a few tiny jewels to the bottom of the nail can add great balance and detail to the overall nail design giving you the perfect mixture of sophistication and sass for any occasion.
