Gradient nails have come back this Summer in a big way with celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Jennifer Hudson wearing them. Some polish enthusiasts, however, have opted to flip the gradient look and wear the effect vertically. New interpretations of the trend include having each nail feature its own gradient, or wearing a gradient across the full manicure.
There is a ton of inspiration for the look on Instagram, with color palettes ranging from entire rainbows to subtle two-tone shifts. Regardless of how bold you’re willing to go, this fun look is sure to warrant a lot of compliments.
