Ombre nails are among the most popular nail art trends today. They’re a combination of different shades of one color that fade into the next. We’ve put together a list of different techniques you can use to create ombre nails, including short black ombre nails with glitter.
Is Ombre Nails Dip or Acrylic?
The answer is a dip. Ombre nails are acrylic, and dip is for toes, fingers, and hands. This means you can have ombre nails on your toes or in between your fingers, but not on your hands (unless you want them to look like claws).
Short Ombre Nails With Glitter
Here’s a short list of tips on how to create ombre nails with glitter. We will be covering the basics of creating this look, but there are many ways you can customize it depending on your personal preference.
#1. Glitter Ombre Nails
If you’re looking for a simple, yet stylish, nail design that can be done in a day or two, then this is the perfect look.
The first step is to apply your base coat and let it dry completely before adding any other colors. Once your base color has dried, start with two coats of the lightest shade you have chosen to paint on each finger, and then add another shade of glittery ombre nails over each hand for added dimension and interest. To finish off this easy-to-do look, just remove any excess glitter using an old toothbrush or cotton bud (if necessary).
#2. Short Ombre Nail Designs With a Cute Pink Glitter Gradient
This is a cute, short ombre nail art design with a pink glitter gradient that can be used for any occasion. If you want to create a more formal look, you can add some gold powder to your nails as well.
#3. Blue Ombre Nails With Glitters on a White Canvas
To create these two nail designs, you will need:
- Nail art brushes
- White canvas paper or cardstock
#4. Multi-Color Ombre Glitter Nails
To create a multi-color ombre glitter nail, you’ll need:
- A nail art brush. This is the perfect tool for applying glitter to your nails.
- A top coat. Use it after you have applied your glitter and before you apply any other color on top of it, as this will seal in any extra shine and make sure that your nails stay looking great all day long.
- Base coat protection for your natural nails (if necessary). Some people prefer having two coats of base coat applied before starting on their designs. This can help prevent chipping or peeling away at the edges of their designs later on down the line if not done properly from the start.
#5. Short Pink Nail Designs With Gold Leaf Tips
If you’re looking for a little extra glamour, try using gold leaf as your tip. This can be done in different ways—you can also use a gold pen or paint it on with a brush.
#6. Beautiful Purple Stiletto Nails With a Blue Base and Multicolored Glitters All Over the Tips
- Use a white base coat.
- Use a blue base coat.
- Apply your multicolor glitter polish to each nail, alternating colors as shown in the photo above. Be sure to leave some space between each color so they don’t overlap too much.
- Finish off with a clear top coat and enjoy.
#7. Half-Moon Purple and Blue Gradient Nails With Glitter Tips on a White Background
This look is perfect for any occasion, especially if you’re going to an event or party. It’s simple yet chic, so it can be worn every day too. The only thing that makes this design stand out is the half-moon shape at the tip of your fingers (or toes). This design will look great on anyone who wants something different than what they usually see on Instagram posts.
#8. Cute Short Coffin Nail Designs for Winter
- The nails are short and coffin-shaped.
- They’re dark pink, burgundy, and black blended with gold powder.
- They’re cute for winter (or any time).
- You can do them at home in 10 minutes. Or if you’re feeling fancy: take a trip to the salon and get them done by a pro who knows what they’re doing. Either way works fine. And don’t forget that these are perfect for a night out—you’ll be able to show off your new look without having to worry about what everyone else will think of your choice in nail color or how much time it took you to get ready this morning.

Black Ombre Nails With Glitter
Black nails are trendy, but not everyone is comfortable with the lack of color. If you’re looking for a more sophisticated look, then you can try this black ombre nail design. It uses the same technique as the watermelon and blueberry designs, but instead of using one color to create an effect, it uses three different shades of black to create a gradient that ends in a bright pink color.
The goal of this ombre design is to make it look like your nails are changing colors as they go from black to white and then back to black again. This process takes longer than just painting your nails with one color and then letting them dry, but the results are worth it.
The first step in creating this design is applying two coats of black polish to your nails. After that has dried completely, you’ll want to paint on another coat of polish over the top of the first coat. This will help seal in any imperfections or bubbles that might have formed during application. Once that’s dry completely, use an orange nail art brush and gently brush away any remaining edges from where you applied your other coats of polish so that no brush strokes show through.
I’m a big fan of black nails. They’re classic, and they look great with any outfit. But if you’re looking for a more unique design, this week’s black ombré nail tutorial will inspire you to try out some new ideas. From square-shaped nails to glue-free designs (that are still super easy), our list of top picks will have something for every kind of style out there.
#1. Black Ombré Coffin Nails
Black ombré nails are a great way to add some contrast to your look. The black base of the nail will help to create depth, while the white tips bring out the color of your skin.
Black and white nail art can be done in many ways, but this one is one of my favorites. You’ll need black nail polish with glitter (I used OPI Nail Envy) as well as some clear or blue water-based top coat so that it doesn’t get sticky or smudge when applied on top of your design.
#2. Epic Eclipse
The best thing about this design is that it’s simple enough for beginners to do themselves at home—just remember not to overdo it when applying glitter (or using thin layers). We recommend using a nail art brush with small bristles for this design so that all of the glitter specks stick evenly throughout each stripe without clumping together into one giant mess.
#3. Spice It up With Sparkle
If you love the look of black ombre nails with glitter but want something a little more sparkly, try using both colors together. This can be done by using glitter nail polish in one hand and a black ombre color in the other. You should apply them both evenly over your nails so they blend into one piece. The final result will be an eye-catching design that will make any occasion pop.
#4. Square Black Ombré Nails
The best approach to achieve black ombré nails is using a square nail. Square nails are extremely versatile and simple to apply at home or on the go. First, paint your base color, then add a thin layer of glitter on top (or you could use a matte topcoat). Paint your second color as usual, then apply a thin layer (or more) of glitter over top—this time using only one piece per nail.
Repeat steps 1–3 with another coat of black ombré polish on both hands before adding any further features such as rhinestones or anything else that catches your eye.
This is a simple, but classy look that’s perfect for the holidays. The black and white color scheme will make your nails pop, while the square shape helps to create an elegant look without being too busy or over-the-top.
For this design you’ll need:
- Nail polish in either black or white (or both)
- Glitter in different colors such as yellow gold and silver
- If you want to try something different from what we’ve shown above, here are some other ideas: Use tape instead of nail polish to put glitter directly on your nails. Use tape only on the tips; no base coat is needed.
How Do You Do French Ombre Nails?
To create a French ombre nail, you’ll need to use a white base coat and a light pink polish. To begin, apply the white polish to your nails with an angled brush or dotting tool. Then use a toothpick to draw lines in between each line of color as you go along. This creates the ombre effect. You can also try using different polishes on one hand at once if that’s what feels more natural for you (but make sure they match).
We hope we’ve helped you with your nail color and nail art dilemmas. Now you go give it a try!
