Pearly Pink

Achieving these pearly nails might appear intricate, but they’re quite simple to do yourself. Choose a nail polish with pearl shimmer and apply a single coat. After it dries, use the polish to create dots across the nail and then swirl them in circular motions using a dotting tool. Nail artist @simlynail, who designed this pink set, offers a comprehensive tutorial you can follow.


French Tips

The nostalgia for the early 2000s remains strong in 2024. Update your high school favorites with a contemporary twist by opting for a rounded nail shape instead of square.


Pop of Sparkle 

If you’re feeling tired of a gradient manicure but aren’t keen on trying other nail art styles, inject some sparkle with a glittery polish such as Olive & June’s “Exclamation Point”.


“French” Manicure 

Golden-tipped nails with the words beau, amour, non, and oui? Brilliant.


Fresh Olive 

Experiment with a subdued olive shade for a more refined, yet still attention-grabbing, variation of last year’s slime trend.

Mismatched Hearts 

Elevate negative-space hearts by adding a unique color to each hand. Create this look yourself by painting over a heart-shaped sticker on each nail and removing them once the polish has dried.


Rainbow French 

For a flawless minimalist nail design, begin with a French manicure but incorporate a varied colored tip on each finger.


Split Screen 

Unable to choose just one color? Embrace them all! (Paintbox’s Power Couple sets simplify the process.)


Crayon Box Nails 

A Skittles-inspired manicure featuring predominantly primary colors exudes a surprisingly contemporary vibe, with a touch of brown preventing it from appearing too juvenile.


Realistic Flowers 

Elaborate floral designs on naked nails resemble genuine masterpieces. Experiment with these stickers to achieve a comparable aesthetic.


Sleek Silver 

Expert advice: Coordinate your rings with your nail color to make a strong impression.


Cherry on Top 

This manicure is nearly overwhelmingly adorable and ideal during the depths of winter when you’re yearning for spring to arrive sooner.


Cotton Candy 

Contemporary color blocking balances out the sweetness of sorbet hues.



A dual French manicure tip featuring spring shades such as mint and lilac is ideal for setting the mood for brighter days ahead.


Understated Greige

If spring-inspired nail designs seem overly adorable, opt for an unconventional neutral tone instead. Consider Essie’s “Wool Me Over” for a chic greige option.


Delicate Blossoms 

This flower artwork is suitable for beginners—simply utilize the tip of a bobby pin to create flawless dots.
