Tickled Pink: Everywhere You Look, Blush Nail Designs Steal the Show

If you haven’t heard yet, pink is making a   big comeback   this year. One of the ways we hope fashion girls will incorporate color into their looks is with pretty pink nail designs for their manicures. I sat down with Tricoci Salon and Spas nail artist Kameron Lange to hear the latest on pink nail design trends (and start planning my next manicure appointment).

“I think pink nails are trendy in part because the Pantone color of the year 2023, Viva Magenta, is in the red and pink family,” Lange explains. “We’ve also seen an increase in the color pink with the release of the Barbie movie this year.” Barbiecore, one of TikTok’s many aesthetic trends, highlights its namesake’s signature color, pink, while incorporating ultra-feminine and Y2K elements. Need a real-life example? Paris Hilton walking the Versace spring/summer 2023 runway in head-to-toe pink sparkles. Greta Gerwig’s upcoming   Barbie movie  , starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, has also sparked a clear re-interest in blush tones for nail designs.

Ways Lange recommends trying trendy pink styles for your nails with pink chrome (also affectionately nicknamed “strawberry donut glazed nails,” thanks to Hailey Bieber) or pink French tips. It has also seen a resurgence of ombre nails, classic French nails and micro designs. As with any manicure, it takes special attention to detail and preparation to create. “Precise cuticle work and nail shaping are key to making the polish look perfect,” says Lange. “It is also important to select a shade that complements the guest’s skin tone and aesthetic!” 

If you’re ready to try the trend (but need a little inspiration), you’re in luck. We’ve rounded up four of our favorite nail designs that we’ll be seeing everywhere this season! Scroll to see which ones are on our list.

“To create this look, you use the same unicorn chrome powder we’ve been using for a year (usually in light, more neutral colors), but instead you apply it in a deeper, brighter pink!”—  Lange

Instead of opting for the classic nude pink base with bright white accents, opt for a flirty pastel to remix your everyday French nail look.
