Looking for inspiration to upgrade your nail game this season? Put the blinding rhinestones and neon hues aside for pastels to take centre stage. Ahead, 21 chic pastel nail art designs to save for your next trip to the nail salon.
Not a fan of 3D nail art, motifs, textures and the like? Worry not—the pastel nail trend works beautifully on its own. Spot these summer-ready hues that we’re enamoured by, from grey-tinged blues to sage green. For a contemporary twist, experiment with a matte finish if you dare.
One of our favourite ways to wear pastels is by flaunting it subtlely—on the tips, to be precise. Elevate your regular French manicure with the periwinkle blue and buttery yellow, or hop on this season’s hottest nail trend (jelly nails) with transparent, colour-tinted digits.
Can’t decide on one specific shade from the colour wheel? Go with five—or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous! Wear a different shade on each nail or jazz up one of your nails with a floral motif. You can do no wrong with this trend.
Play with prints
Risk-takers and thrill-seekers out there, these were made for you. Go bold and channel your inner wild child with your manicure (despite the sweetest of colours) with polka dots, touch-worthy textures, ice cream swirls, speckled nail art that resemble ceramic mugs, and even a pastel tie-dye for the 21st-century hippie. There’s something for everyone here.
