While colorful nail designs are certainly not a new thing in the beauty sphere, I’ve been seeing more and more bright-hued, mismatched, and unique nail art on my Instagram feed, especially from my favorite fashion girls, which reflects the punch of colors I’ve seen trending in clothing as well. As someone who keeps their nails either without polish or to one beloved minimal tone (Hi, Ballet Slippers by Essie!), I have to say I’m both intrigued and inspired. As I’ve already been a long-time maximalist when it comes to my wardrobe, I’m willing to take note from our stylish friends and add a little fun to my nail routine too.
If you’re skeptical, don’t fret—I’ve rounded up a variety of eye-catching nails that adhere to multiple style preferences. I’m talking about designs that include neon tips, negative space, and ombre. Whether you’re a pro or an amateur like me, I’m positive there’s a nail design amongst this mix that’ll make you want to take a break from your go-to nudes.
