Looking for an alternative to the classic nude or light pink for your wedding day nails? One option to consider is nude ombre! The design is simple and sleek, yet it still adds a subtle touch to your beauty look. “An ombre fade using nude shades is not only super neutral and easy to coordinate with your look, [but] it’s also super chic,” says Heather Reynosa, director of OPI Global Education Design.
You can keep it classic with your nude ombre mani, but this design also allows you to incorporate a bit of creativity while remaining neutral. “Nudes come in creams, shimmers, pearls, and even chrome effects to create various color ombre combinations,” according to Reynosa.
