Updated: Jun 3, 2022

Is it difficult to imagine something on your nails besides the classic hues: red varnish or nude shades? To get a complete lowdown on what shades are trending, take a look at the nail color trends 2021 for inspiration.

Trendy nail colors 2021

Yellow nails

It can be lemon-yellow pastels, like in nail design at 3.1 Phillip Lim show, translucent yellow plastic, as in Chromat, or yellow-green with glitter in the House of Holland. Take advantage of these ideas and get inspired by Mark Fast, Chromat and 3.1 Phillip Lim shows.

Milk shades

This year milk shades are an alternative to powdery nude tints. Use a soft pink shade of strawberry milkshake on your nails, as in the show Erdem and Helmut Lang. Another option is translucent white, which looks like it’s watered down. Both in the first and in the second case, your nails will turn out to be feminine and elegant.

Neon nails 2021

The complete opposite of pastel shades is neon hues, which are also in vogue in 2021. Whenever you're in the mood to do something brighter, paint your nails an acid green (done on the GCDS show), electric blue as in Courreges, or blue as in the fashion show of Mark Fast. Fashionable neon green, pink, blue, like on the nails of models from the Chromat show are the trendiest nail colors 2021.


Silver nails

Silver nails are one of the most noticeable nail trends in 2021. They can be with a matte metallic effect, with glitter or with holographic overflows, like at Julien Macdonald's fashion shows.

Red nails 2021

Of course, red is not out of fashion in 2021. This color is loved by nail artists, and they rarely complement it with trendy tints. At fashion shows, red color adorned the fashion looks of Moschino and Marco de Vincenzo models.

Burgundy nails

The burgundy hue turned out to be relevant no less than red. You can wear it in 2021 with a glossy finish like the Guy Laroche fashion show and a matte finish as in the Rebecca Minkoff show.

Coffee beige color

The color of coffee with cream was most often chosen among the nude shades at the fashion shows. It looks beautiful on short nails, applied in a single tone. Get inspired by 3.1 Phillip Lim, Carolina Herrera and Elie Tahari fashion shows.

Pink and blue nails

Start the spring season with subtle pastel shades. Use them in a single tone to refresh your look. Or combine to create the effect of watercolor stains.

Peach nails

It can be a soft shade, like French design from the Oscar de la Renta show, or a brighter color: choose according to your mood. Both versions will be relevant in the spring.


Metallic nails

Shining metallic shades are always remind of themselves during fall/winter runways. It happened this year as well. Choose silver with gold for stunning nail design or with more unusual colors, but also you can try with a metallic finish. This can be, for example, emerald, as in the fashion shows of The Blonds.

Black and white

The combination of black and white made in graphic design will be perfect for nail art in 2021. Draw black on white or white on black, choose the style according to your mood.
