One of the must-have nail trends is baby boomer nails. These super chic nails feature light pink and white ombre art. It's like a French manicure, but instead of having white tips with pink nails, the colors blend together, which is why these nails are also called French Ombre or French Fade. It is unconfirmed why the trend is being dubbed Baby Boomer, but it is speculated that this is because these colors were popular for nails from the 1940s to the 1960s in what is known as the Baby Boom era. We love this look and we know you do too, so we've found 41 of the cutest designs. There are bright versions, plain and classic nails and much more. Take a look around to find your favourite.
