Pastel nails are on a level of their own. They manage to look mellow, funky, and bright all at the same time.
And we absolutely can’t get enough of them.
But what are some of our favorite pastel nails? Let’s take a look at 19 now.
1. Pastel lightning bolts 🗲
It’s nice to see something other than hearts and stars on nails. Let’s make lightning bolts a new nail trend.
2. Care Bear pastel nails
We love everything about these pastel nails — from those heart clouds to the pastel rainbow to that stunning shade of purple.

5. Animal print
We are big fans of animal print at Kiara Sky. Whether it’s cheetah, cow, giraffe, or zebra, we’re feeling it.
6. Pastel flowers and nude
We love pastel laid on top of a nude cover. It takes that mellow vibe to the next level. Add some gold details and you got yourself a stunner of a nail design.
7. Mini Easter eggs
We’ll eat chocolate Easter eggs any day of the year, and we’ll also wear chocolate Easter eggs on our nails any day of the year. 🥚
8. Pastel pink horizontal ombre
Ombre nails can be pulled off in a million different ways. It’s beautiful nail art that can be done at any skill level.

9. Mix & match pastel tips
It always turns out really neat when people apply multiple patterns to one set of nails, especially when they stick to a pastel theme throughout.

15. Spring pastels
We’re not sure why exactly, but these nails remind us of springtime and happiness. If we could, we’d wear these pastel nails forever and ever.
