The Trendiest Pink Nail Colors to Use |

Pink nails have always been a classic for a reason: they’re always in regardless of the season. When in doubt, I always go with some variation of a pink color.

I’ve gotten a lot of questions about pink nails, so I wanted to share my favorite inspo photos as well as some info on doing pink nails!

Pink Nail Trends

Here are some of my favorite pink nail trends that are super in right now!

  • Soft marble pink nails
  • Matte blush pink nails
  • Pink nails with gold sparkle or metallic highlights
  • Slightly squared nails in a soft color
  • Pink and mauve polish mixed (a few on each finger)

Base + Top Coats: Matte or Shiny?

Whether you’re using gel or regular nail polish, a base coat and top coat are both really important. They’ll determine not only how long your manicure lasts, but how shiny it is.

Some of the photos below showcase shiny nails while others are matte. Regardless, I’ve linked one gel color and one regular color for each. I recommend that you purchase a specific type of top coat depending on the level of shine that you’re looking for.

As far as gel polish, I really like Gellish: I find that it lasts way longer than other polish brands. If you’re looking for info on how to do a gel manicure at home for super cheap (while making sure it lasts for a while), check out my blog post here to see exactly what I use.

Pink Stick On Nails:

love stick on nails. While I tend to get dip manicures lately because they protect my nails and help them grow, I still have a variety of stick on nail designs in my drawer.

I find that stick on nails work especially well when you want a cool design. You don’t have to worry about the still level of your technician; you can literally just stick them on your fingers and go.

My. favorite pink stick on nails are on Etsy. There are so many cool designs that are super affordable. If you’re into stick on nails, check out pink nails on Etsy here!
