You don’t need to be the classiest and most feminine girl to rock pink nails. Even though this color is often associated with all-things-girly, the truth is that anyone, regardless of their style, can rock this gorgeous color on their hands. From the bold black and pink designs to sweet bubble gum pink and glitter, pink nails will always find a way to surprise you.
Pink is a color that has so many gorgeous variations: from a soft nude pink and blush to hot fuscia and coral. The shade that you choose should reflect your personal style or the occasion of use.
For example, if you’re attending a fancy cocktail party that your boss is hosting, a classic blush pink is a great option as the main color. You can also spice it up with rose gold glitter or white ombre effect for a modern look.
If, on the other hand, you’re planning on going to a birthday party at the beach, a magenta or hot pink might do the trick. You can team up this color with white, black, rhinestones, glitter… Anything that will make your nails look bolder will always be a great idea for a party.
You can also rock an edgy and unique pink nail design. Remember that pink is not only for the feminine and sweet. Shake things up with chrome nails, or a black matte accent nail paired with fuscia, or gold flakes over long pink stiletto nails.
