Pokemon nail art
I choose you! One of the more unique designs and so full of fun and vivid colorways. With so many different designs and colorways, there’s a little something for everyone here. Whether you’re a fan of Pikachu or Jigglypuff, we’ve got something for everyone.
We’ve scrolled through
thousands of Pokemon nail designs (even tried one ourselves) and selected our favorites to feature. Covering as many different styles as we could so whether you want to DIY a set yourself or you want some inspiration to show a nail tech, we’ve got something for you.
Let me ask you first: who’s your favorite pokemon? Mine’s not in this set, but I don’t mind getting these nails. Just look at how adorable Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle are! I bet you’re dying to have these stamps.
Can you actually believe that Espeon and Umbreon were handpainted in these nails? Oh, yes, they were! I really admire how they both complement the iridescent colors paired with them respectively.
Our dearest Pikachu looks so good on a Halloween witch costume. I really like the soft jelly purple base and the lustrous, multi-colored glitters that the artist used in this set.
We know that Bulbasaur has got a unique charm. It is a bit powerless while young, but it becomes undeniably powerful once it evolves into an Ivysaur and then Venusaur. Just like you and your nails… charming yet dangerous.
Now, who can resist these unicorn colors with a glistening 3D nail design of Metamon Pikachu? I’m sure you can’t. Pikachu is irresistible, after all.
Pokemon x Demon Slayer collab… why not?! Looks like Pikachu and Nezuko-chan are enjoying themselves in these nails. If you like this set, check out the anime nail art list too!
Here’s some trivia: Exeggutor’s heads think of different thoughts, but when they unite, they release a very powerful psychic energy that strengthens the summoner. Wanna enhance your psychic powers, too? Go for these nails!
I’m not sure if these nails were handpainted or stamped. If they were handpainted, isn’t that perhaps one of the coolest things you’ve heard today?
Oh, here’s my favorite pokemon! Meowth! Girly version, though. That’s okay. I love anything that relates to Meowth. All pokemon are loyal to their owners, but I personally believe that Meowth surpasses them all in that field.
Ooh, I’d love to have these mirror nails together with those cute pokemon stickers. I bet they’re going to look so awesome on my hands. I’ll have a pictorial while holding a pokemon ball.
Doesn’t this color look so divine? Gengar can look a bit scary, but that fearsome aura just got eliminated because of the nails’ lavender gem-like, marble design surface. Sugoi!
Can’t choose between the element of fire and water? Why not have both with these nails? Charmander and Squirtle look so fine in handpainted mode.
Guess that pokemon, my friend. Ah, wait, there’s no need to guess. Judging by the design of these nails, I am betting my life on Togepi! These pokemon tips just wiped off all the french tips I’ve been checking out recently.
Hey, hey! Another Togepi and Bulbasaur inspiration, but this time, in Sakura colors. If there is one thing I’d like to try when I go to Japan, that’s definitely to experience the Cherry Blossoms season. Not your traditional cherry blossom nail art but a fun twist for sure!
These pokemon nails look so cool and refreshing to the eyes. I like the blue pokemon ball. Did you know that in the Pokemon world, a poke ball that has a different color other than red means that your level has been upgraded?
Cubone surely knows how to melt our hearts, doesn’t he? I can’t believe he’s handpainted here using acrylic paint. That’s just so cool.
Pikachu exhibiting several kinds of faces is making me want to watch the series again. Most of you probably pick this pokemon as their favorite. I don’t wonder anymore since he’s literally too cute to handle.
I’d like to personally commend the artist for the design and concept of these top-tier nails. If you are a Pokemon fan, you know exactly why she used the red and blue unicorn colors to highlight Vulpix’s presence.
I will have to admit that I intentionally included these nails because of Snorlax. He is the next best thing to being cute after Pikachu. You can fight me all you want but that won’t change my mind.
Umbreon somewhat reminds me of Toothless/Night Fury from How to Train Your Dragon, except for the green eyes and the wings. Maybe just add handpainted wings on these nails and you already have a dragon nail art.
These pokemon nails are intended for men who are into gel polish. But of course, anyone from anywhere can imitate them as long as they love Pokemon (and even not)!
Ooh, Pikachu and his mighty thunderbolt! I love how the yellow color of the bolts combined so well with the glittery black surface. And, of course, how Pikachu seems to look so astonished on that middle fingernail.
Another Gengar paint for those who particularly love this pokemon. By the way, aren’t those stars too gorgeous to look at? I feel like I am looking at real stars in the night sky.
I have to be honest here. Team Rocket will always be my favorite trio. If you have seen the anime, you will know why. They are literally a dream team even if they fail on their missions most of the time.
Are you fond of water-type pokemon? If so, then Vaporeon and Starmie here can surely make you and your nails happy. Here’s something more fascinating: those nails are handpainted!
Or maybe you like grass-type pokemon? Snivy and Shaymin must be added up to your list. But mind you, the ones that caught my attention on these nails are the gold glitters. They look fantastic.
Here is a chibi version of Bulbasaur for those who like it greeny and dainty. Ooh, I am so in love with Bulbasaur’s cute faces in these nails.
Psyduck losing it after probably hearing Brock’s commentary. This pokemon is just too cute, and those glitter and marble nails are truly marvelous.
Jigglypuff, Togepi, Poliwag, and Dratini are looking so fabulous on those tips. And, time and again, let me just say this: I can’t believe those pokemon are handpainted!!
I like what the artist said here: “ Pink isn’t just a color. It’s an attitude.” Jigglypuff and I couldn’t agree more.
Pysduck looking so fine and fab in a lovely, orange skyline. Jigglypuff looks so charming and happy in an ethereal, pink horizon. I’ll make sure to add these nails to my list.
Not so flashy but I’m still adding it because Snorlax is love. And, don’t you find those “zzz” cute and funny? So witty, to be honest.
Can you guess the pokemon? Indeed, darling. It’s the legendary, energy-sucking… Yveltal! I really find him so fascinating. The fiery red aura that absorbs the life out of anyone. Truly powerful.
“ Pikachu, I choose you!” I definitely love this line from the anime. We all know that Ash will always and forever choose Pikachu. If Team Rocket is my favorite trio, Ash and Pikachu are no doubt my favorite duo.
Never thought that there’d be pokemon nails fit for a wedding. Here’s something for the bride-to-be who is in love with Pokemons!
While the pokemon nail decals are pretty, what made me pick this one is the base color. They shine in blue and purple glitters, they look so smoothly fashionable.
Voltorb’s strength is speed and self-defense. However, they are also his weakness. He self-destructs once necessary, and he must never touch the ground.
Paras’ strength lies in its ability to mine under the ground and absorb nutrients from tree roots. Pokemon topic aside, however, I am getting candy vibes from these nails. How about you?
Lickitung is cute and charming and adds some unique fun to these sage green nails.
Squirtle is cool and awesome, but those waves are the ones leaving an impression. They are all handpainted. How can they be so intricate?
Oh, you might want it plain and simple so I included this one. Classic pokemon balls for everyone’s entertainment.
And maybe you like other kinds of pokemon balls so here’s an inspiration. Yep, there are several types of pokemon balls and each type has its respective grade.
Here’s my favorite line again! “I choose you.” Who won’t fall in love with that? Whether it’s in friendship or love, knowing that someone loves you and chooses you is definitely one of the best feelings in the world!
Some of you might want to clash their pokemon nails with some polka dot and glitter nail art. Here’s one for inspiration.
Pikachu and his timeless cuteness, with some glamorous black meteor-inspired surface.
Team Rocket always and forever for the win! This set is best for those with long, ballerina nails. Handpainted Meowth looks so innocent, don’t you think?
Question for the gamers: Have you tried Pokemon Legends Arceus? The Eeveelution is just too amazing. All right, sorry. That question is only for the gamers, but these insanely beautiful nails are for everyone!
I know we already have entries for Gengar. However, I found this one and I thought it’s definitely worth adding to this list. Those marble nails are beyond the shadow of doubt taking me to a different world!
Ash and Pikachu, besties forever! We really need to help Ash “be the very best like no one ever was.” He’s gotta go catch them all.
Pokeballs in swirl designs to help you relieve your stress. I’m pretty sure you’re gonna have fun imitating these.
Pokemon beauties to please everyone’s eyes. They are so eye-catching. Are they not?
Heh. Don’t ask anymore. You know I love Snorlax so much. Ooh, and I love that red matte polish as well.
Last two but definitely not least, Pokemon stamps on a blazing red surface for our fearless and bold queens…
… or handpainted Eevee nails on a tenacious black base for our determined and dauntless kings.
