Playing with color and nail art is fun, but sometimes DIY nail designs require a certain level of skill, patience, and time. This ombré look is playful and easy to do.

Don't have five different shades of pink (purple, blue, or red)? The New Black Ombré Nail Polish 5-Piece Set ($22) makes it practically foolproof to "nail" this trend. The brand offers collections in blue, teal, pink, black, red, and even nude — I used the Floyd set pictured above. Plus, the polishes come in various finishes, so you can also play with textures. It's color wheel genius.
