We can confidently say that purple is a color that will always be in style in our book. From soft pastel lilac shades to deep and rich plum hues, it’s a color that offers versatility and can be worn year-round, no matter how warm or chilly it gets outside. And it seems as though every time we log onto social media, we’re introduced to new purple-inspired manicure designs—and we can’t get enough! If you’re as obsessed with this color as we are, read on for some purple nail designs with a twist, to help you switch things up while remaining loyal to this stunning hue.

1. Purple Color Block Nails 

For an easy-to-do summer nail design, try color blocking. This look only requires three colors: the base and two other shades to be layered on top to create the color block look. Use tape to help create geometric shapes across all your nails. Otherwise, all you have to do is paint.

2. Purple Holographic Nails 

Holographic nails are an updated take on high-shine, shimmer-packed polish. When you tilt your nails and look at them under direct light, they not only shimmer but the color shifts, and you’ll see a beautiful spectrum of shades. Instead of covering your entire nail in a purple holographic polish, opt for painting just your tips like a modern french manicure and add tiny dots of polish in the nude areas to create a simple, yet pretty design. 

3. Purple Multicolored Swirl Nails 

Adding some variety to your traditional manicure with the help of a colorful swirly upgrade could be just what your nails need. Swap your classic nail hue for a bright purple shade—or five! Be sure to use a fine-tipped brush to paint on your swirls, which will help you get a more detailed and clean design. 

4. Purple Mismatched Nails 

Mismatched nails are one of the most popular trends right now. If you’re looking for a chic way to stand out, try alternating colors, designs, and patterns during your next manicure. You can even opt for clear acrylic tips to give your manicure a pretty upgrade. 

Editor’s Tip: Use different hues within the same color family for a flattering look. For example, if you want to use purple, find a few lighter and deeper variations of the color. 

5. Purple Negative Space Nails

Negative space manicures offer multiple ways to spruce up your natural nails since the style only requires the use of shapes, patterns, and nail polish on certain areas of the nail. You can use a negative space design to create cool abstract shapes (like circles) for a chic and trendy manicure. 

6. Purple Marble Nails

Adding marble swirls to your nails in a light purple hue can give off romantic vibes that remind you of summer love. If you want to take it up a notch without doing a full marble set, ask your manicurist to create the fun swirls on a few accent nails or include a gold foil pop against the marble design

7. Purple Animal Print Nails 

We’ve been seeing cow print nails all over our social media feeds and it’s a look we love! Give your nails a trendy upgrade by creating a purple cow print design on a few (or all) of your nails. You’ll need to use white polish as your base and then apply tiny purple splotches all over your nails using a fine-tipped paintbrush. 

Whether at home or in the salon, don’t forget to moisturize your hands after finishing up a manicure. This will be the key to getting an Instagram-worthy nail photo. Use the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm - Face/Neck/Chest/Hands, which smells as great as it feels thanks to its honey-inspired fragrance. The formula also includes nourishing oils infused with calcium and antioxidants to help keep your skin feeling soft and moisturized.
