Fall Ombre Nails
If you love any of the following ombre nail looks but don’t want to try to DIY them yourself or have to spend extra for a manicure, you can buy most of the nails on Amazon. They’re really affordable too!
These gorgeous orange-blue gradient nails mix multiple shades of fall colors to create striking abstract nail art. The short oval, glossy length is so versatile, making them perfect for everyday wear.
The warm fall shades make this a classic fall nail design.
This long gray-to-black ombre design has glitter on the tips and rectangular rhinestones on some of the nails, creating truly eye-catching nail art.
Another fun ombre nail design for fall is this set of black-to-green nails. The glossy coffin shape creates a bold statement, yet the ombre shading offers a subtle transition.
These short purple ombre nails have muted shades of purple. The fun glossy ombre nail art is perfect for when the weather gets cooler. The purple shades look gorgeous on short nails.
If you love the color blue, these navy blue glitter nails use glitter to create the ombre design. The deeper shade of blue of these coffin nails works well with the rich shades of autumn.
A shorter take on red and black nails, these square matte nails use a subtle ombre effect to create a deep, moody look. Perfect for any fall event!
These pink to deep red gradient nails have a square shape and glossy finish. The ombre effect creates an edgy yet feminine look for the fall season that pairs well with most looks and occasions.

These aqua blue to black coffin nails get a boost from just the right touch of glitter to create a flashy ombre look.
The bright aqua-blue shade stands out against the black and offsets the otherwise dark nails. They would look amazing with any denim look.
For a more feminine look, I love these pink ombre ballerina nails (also shown on my nails at the bottom of the post). With a matte finish, the pink nail colors range from light pink to deep mauve pink. Gorgeous!

If you want a fun Halloween ombre mani, these pumpkin and black gradient nails with moons and stars have a stiletto shape, making them look very similar to candy corn!
This red and black ombre nail design almost looks like precious stones with glittery gold veining running throughout. The medium stiletto shade isn’t too long, so they’re a little more practical for daily wear.
These nude-to-red gradient nails have black French tips, perfect for the fall season, instead of the traditional white-tipped French manicure. The short square shape creates a minimalistic and modern look, great for everyday wear.
For a more neutral nail design, these pale pink to purple ombre nails are short and square. They’re super glossy and chic.
If you love a little flashy nail art, these pink gradient acrylic nails are embellished with pearl and rhinestone accents. Thin gold lines are added for extra drama, and the result is a statement-making look.

These medium-length glossy almond nails bring in the warm orange shades of the autumn season with their nude-to-golden-orange gradient.
The almond shape of the ombre manicure is the perfect length for everyday wear.
Ombre Nail Polish
For a different take on ombre nails, this color-changing nail polish is such a fun concept.
The nail polish turns a lighter color when it’s warm, and a darker shade when it’s cool – so you can have your nails change colors with the temperature!
Please note that this gel nail polish must be cured and dried under a UV/LED lamp and needs to be used with a gel base and top coat, so it isn’t as simple as applying a single coat and seeing the transformation.
The longer the nails, the better the ombre effect you’ll get. There are many different shades to experiment with, and they have pretty good reviews too.
Here’s an affordable UV LED lamp and top and bottom coat set.
This looks so fun. Let me know if you’ve tried this type of nail polish!
