Soft yet full of attitude, pink nails don’t have to be all sweetness and light. Depending on what shade of pink you choose, this nail style can really pack a punch.
To make a bold statement, try leaning into fuchsias and bright pinks with hints of purple.
Or, if you’re feeling hot and tropical, try a pink with orange and true red tones. The warmer the pink the more summery your nails will appear, whereas cooler pinks trend toward the bubblegum spectrum.
Pink is in season all year round. Mauve pinks sometimes appear somewhat duller than other pinkish shades, but they also have a timeless, elegant look that is perfect for everyday wear.
This color also has the advantage of complementing virtually all skin tones due to its versatile undertones.
What makes the short pink nail look powerful is the “short” part of it. Rather than having long nails, a short nail conveys power and a no-nonsense attitude.
The pink color can soften it somewhat, or create intrigue due to the contrast. A rounded tip makes shorter nails look more feminine and polished, but a rounded square tip can keep your nails looking strong and professional.
One great advantage of having a rounded square nail shape is that it provides more surface area for painting!
You can always dress up pink nails with extra designs. Another option is to paint each nail a slightly different shade for a more varied, edgy look.
It’s easier to go nuts with designs and add-ons with such a grounded, universal color as pink.
