Nail art is one of the best ways to express yourself and update your look every season. Still, there are almost too many styles to choose from. So what better way to find out what nail art embodies your vibe than finding the one that best aligns with your Zodiac sign? From embellishments to squiggles, here are the top manicure picks for every Zodiac sign.
1. Aries: Pop of Color
An Aries is bold, adventurous, and filled with spirit. That charismatic personality demands something that stands out from the crowd rather than blending in. Consider a fierce bold red, or an eclectic color design with different pops of color on each finger.
2. Taurus: Gold-Speckled
A Taurus is grounded and rational, but still romantic at times. For this reason, speckled gold is the ultimate choice. It’s classic and still slightly neutral, with a light scattering of sparkle that matches everything. You can opt for a clear sparkly hue, or layer gold sparkles over another color of polish.
3. Gemini: Rainbow French Tips
This sign is whimsical and flirtatious, but full-on rainbow nails might be a little too lively. Instead, consider a rainbow nail art with some negative space cutouts, or our personal favorite — rainbow French tips. They keep things interesting and combine vibrant and minimal vibes for a year-round look that’s foolproof.
4. Cancer: Pastels
Often gentle spirits, the tranquility, and whimsy associated with soft pastels are perfect for a Cancer. They’re known for their inviting and thoughtful personalities, and the warm, approachable tones of these pastels can help depict that in your mani or pedi.
5. Leo: Metallic
A manicure filled with glitz and glamour is a must-have for fierce Leos. Dazzle onlookers with some metallic, mirror-like nail art in whatever metallic tone you prefer, whether it’s rose gold, bronze, or silver. This look isn’t for the faint of heart, and it’ll radiate confidence, just like you.
6. Virgo: Neutrals/muted tones
Pragmatic Virgos never go too overboard with their manicure choices, and neutrals are always a safe bet. If you find this too boring, consider combining patterns with these neutral tones. Think taupe, olive green, and creams for a year-round look that slays. You can also opt for French tips in these neutral tones.
7. Libra: Ombré
Often hailed as natural peace-keepers, Libras will love this balanced design which shows a gradient. It can be chosen with any color and can help act as a daily reminder of balance, telling you to stay relaxed and not overwork yourself too hard. It’s stylish, simple, and just the right amount of playful.
8. Scorpio: Matte Black
Although Scorpio is technically a water sign, they’re known for their passionate side. If you don’t want to remind people of your private soft side, show your armor to the world with a bold, matte black manicure. If black is too dark for your taste, a matte military green or brown shade will also have the same dramatic yet elevated effect.
9. Sagittarius: Animal Print
A classic Sagittarius is bold and free-spirited, and not afraid of trying new things. While animal print may be played out in certain pieces of clothing, it’s still trending in the world of manicures. Animals printed claws are this season’s new take on florals, so flaunt that adventurous soul with a crocodile print or whatever other animal-inspired looks you desire.
10. Capricorn: Cutout Details
Loyal to a fault, practical and stubborn, Cappies are all about considering their options before making a decision. Although they might stick to the same classic manicure picks, they’ll still want a little style flare. That’s why a timeless shade like Merlot or pastel pink combined with bare cutout details at the top of the nail or the cuticle is the best choice.
11. Aquarius: Sky and Clouds Print
These intelligent air signs are independent and drift along to their own beat, so what’s better than a dreamy cloud and sky design with light blues and whites? With a creative heart, the Aquarius deserves a memorable manicure that’ll do them justice. They’re also known as the water-bearer of the Zodiac who flies in the sky, so this look is a natural fit.
12. Pisces: Faux Pearl Embellishments
Embellishments never get tired, and faux pearls are one of the most timeless ways to express it in a mani. A quick way to spruce up a boring color, pearl embellishments are fitting since one of the Pisces planetary rulers is Neptune, who reigns over the sea. Even if they’re fake, they represent a precious gem that’s made in the water by the creatures that live in it.
