41 Elegant Baby Boomer Nail Designs You’ll Love

Posted on

One of the must-have nail trends are baby boomer nails. These super chic nails feature ombre art in light pink and white. It is like a French manicure but instead of having white tips with the pink nails, the colors are blended and because of this, these nails are also called French ombre or French fade. It is not confirmed why the trend is called baby boomer but it has been speculated that it is because these colors were popular for nails through the 40’s up until the 60’s which is known as the baby boomer era. We love this look and know that you will too, so we have found 41 of the most beautiful designs. There are sparkly versions, simple and classic nails and much more. Take a look to find your favorite.
