The romantic “blushing nail” trend is making a comeback from a year ago, where it was especially popular amongst the Japanese.

The look is as pretty as it sounds: a warm wash of pink diffused onto pale coloured nails as if they’re blushing, giving the basic one-colour manicure a fresh take. Whether you’re one of the trend conscious or not, embrace the upcoming Spring season with this lovely trend that’ll have you staring adoringly at your new nails all day!

Blushing nails for the minimalist

Who says minimalists can’t have fun with their nails? If you’re a less-is-more kind of person, consider giving a boring manicure a do-over by imbuing a pale base shade like beige or white with a juicy peach or pink shade, creating a dreamy, ombre effect perfect for photos.

Blushing nails with a touch of glamour

More of a glitz and glam kind of girl? We totally get it. Step up the shine and go for chunky, fun-shaped glitter, or even rhinestones, to make your nails pop, and all you have to do is sit back and wait for the compliments to roll in.

Ombre blushing nails

While the Tumblr-era tie-dyes and mustaches may seem uncool now, ombres have been making consistent comebacks in the beauty world, whether it be on our nails or as an eyeshadow look, and we’re not complaining. Try the blushing nail trend in the form of a cooler French manicure like the ones above. Plus, the blurred French manicure is totally in right now.

Sweet-looking blushing nails

If sweet and innocent is your middle name, try this ultra-romantic one with pearls, gold accent studs, and floral prints on a base of flushed pink, that’ll basically look like a fairytale on your nails.

Edgy blushing nails

And if you’re the edgier one of the two, try these colour combinations for a different look that still has that romantic vibe. Or, take it one step further and spruce it up, showing your dynamic personality with glitter or gems!
