Pink is such a wonderfully versatile color for nails that there’s sure to be a hue that everyone likes. Pink is used to create adorable designs from happy smiling faces and love hearts to abstract art and elegant ombre. Whether you choose a sweet pastel or a fierce and vibrant neon shade, you’ll be getting inspired by these pink nail art designs.

The great thing about this design is that if pink isn’t your favorite color, you can change it to any color combination.
2. Shades of Pink Nails
Why choose one shade of pink when you can have several? This stunning look works best when you have different depths of pink from one color family. Use the same warm or cool undertones and get progressively lighter with each color. You can paint the darkest shade on your thumbs, and work from there. You can choose a matte finish, or a high gloss, depending on your personal preference. It’s simple yet elegant with a playful, fun twist.
3. Pink Pop Art Nails
Throw it back to morning cartoons and cheap candy from the stores with these fun pink pop-art nails. Just make sure to visit a good nail technician with a steady hand to bring your vision alive.
4. Pink and Nude Nail Art
Opt for something unique with pink and nude nail art. While nude can feel a bit drab at times, this manicure makes use of gold and black decals to create interest and vibrancy. Meanwhile, the hot coral pink on the remaining nails anchors the look and adds a pop of color. This style is both sophisticated and cheerful at the same time.
5. Pink Dalmatian Nails
This dalmatian design is one for the beauties out there. Show your appreciation for the adorably speckled hound with a pink and nude spotty coat design. All you need is a fine brush to paint hot pink splotches on a nude or pastel background.
6. Pink Ombre Nails
Ombre nails are on-trend at the moment, and pink is the perfect shade for this design. The smooth transition from dark to light looks stunning and is a great way to incorporate multiple colors. Plus, you can achieve this look regardless if you’re using nail polish, dip powders, acrylic, or gels. It can be a bit tricky with some colors, such as black; however, pink is a great place to start because it’s easier to get that perfect fade.
7. Pink Watercolour Effect Nails
This design is a unique take on rainbow nails that looks incredible yet easy to achieve. Apply a base, then a coat of white polish, and a topcoat. Next, put a drop of your first color on a non-porous surface, and add a couple of drops of acetone before mixing. Then, use a fine brush to apply the paint to your nail in a splodgy motion. Repeat with the rest of your colors until you have the desired effect. Finally, finish it off with a shiny topcoat to prevent chipping and wearing. You’ll feel like an artist in no time with this artwork on your fingertips.
