Whether it’s May 4th or you just want to celebrate your fandom, this star wars nail art is
way more diverse than you might have expected. From the old school to the new franchise, there’s a little bit of everything from iconic characters to entire manicures themed for the Star Wars universe.
We went through
thousands of Star Wars nail designs ( loved every moment) and narrowed it down to our favorites. From the simple stickers and ideas you can do easily to the more intricate inspirations to show your nail tech, we’ve got you covered. Because manicure you must!
We’re starting this collection with a fun and colorful nail set. I love how the galaxy nails are mixed with these bursts of color that just makes this look so captivating.
We’re zooming in a bit on these lovely details. I love the mix of the Stormtrooper helmet with the floral design next to it. I truly love the art style featured in this nail set because of how detailed everything is.
Here’s a rather bright nail set that’s filled with designed French tips and some glitters. I think I can honestly say, I’ve never seen R2D2 French tips before. Who wouldn’t recognize this little droid?
These nails show off that Star Wars theme. I like the separation of the light side and the dark side, which are emphasized on each hand.
What I really like about this nail set is how it was able to combine all these different sparkly designs of different colors. I love the vibrance and the combination of colors.
If you feel like going for something edgy, opt for these matte black and red nails. Don’t miss that subtle Sith accent nail. The stiletto shape makes them look a lot edgier and gives them this dark side vibe.
This nail set is adorable! I love how the emphasis was placed on this really adorable connected design of Baby Yoda.
Here’s another nail set that really gives off that calming vibe. A cute little cartoon design that would make you let the Wookie win just because of that cute little face! I love the use of light green that looks easy on the eyes.
A full black and white set may sometimes seem a bit too dull so adding in a light or dark accent nail is a really good way of adding back some vibrance into the look. Plus, it’s hard to go wrong with a lightsabre fight on your fingers.
Looking at this nail set can’t help but bring a smile to my face. I like how these nails are filled with so many different designs and characters. It just seems like a fun little reunion.
These nails are dark and edgy. The colorway is definitely from the dark side, but I really like the contrast between the simple lines on the Darth Vader to the lightsaber.
This is definitely one of my favorite nail designs in this collection so far. I really like how clean and sleek the entire look is, the subtle glitter French tips match the Baby Yoda color style.
Here’s a very dashing nail set. I really like the look of black nails paired with really vibrant colors. The best thing is that these sky designs blend in so seamlessly beside the plain black polish.
If you feel like going for something more original Star Wars, go for these matte black nails. The black makes the colors pop and damn that detail on the Falcon.
These nails look so magical! Even just looking at the sparkly purple base makes me feel like I’m inside a dream surrounded by blinding stars.
If you’re used to plain polish, you can simply add in one or two accent nails with the design of your choice. This is also great for emphasizing certain designs.
We’ve got more of your standard black almond-shaped nails filled with all of these characters. I like how the artist stuck to the black and white color theme as it perfectly fits the franchise.
We’re bringing you more color and a bit of nature with these Chewbacca-themed nails. I like how the entire set looks like an entire painting.
Here’s by far my favorite black nail set in this collection so far. I love the really cool multi-colored lightsaber designs! Also, can we talk about how cute Yoda is here?
It’s amazing how easily you can create a Star Wars-themed nail set by simply using black glitter polish as it really gives off the look of being in space and a few memorable characters.
If you insist on having a light and glamorous Star Wars set, try out these gorgeous green and white glitter-filled nails! I love how chic the entire design is.
These Mandalorian nails that really make the silver and gold designs pop. It’s a pretty good minimalistic set.
If you’re feeling a bit of shine, you can add some by opting for a glossy finish. It also adds more highlights and dimension to a look!
Connected nail designs are my absolute favorite because of how much work comes into them. It’s also a great way of making your nails look more cohesive.
There’s always some room for glamor in a nail set. These sparkling green nails are fabulous. They also give these beautiful warm yellow reflections when placed under light.
If you’re a fan of Disney, you could definitely incorporate a few other beloved characters into your set. This one’s even got our beloved Stitch!
Everything about this nail set is adorable. It’s really well made because of how well-balanced all the designs are.
Here’s a coffin-shaped nail set for those who prefer longer nails. We’ve got these prominent characters on each nail plus the Star Wars logo, creating a complete Star Wars nail set.
This nail set is amazing. It’s wonderful how each nail has a completely unique design made with so much artistry.
Rounded nails really create the appearance of softer-looking nails. What really makes this set stand out are the pretty glitters spread throughout the set making them look like multi-colored stars.
Here’s another really cool set divided into the light side and the dark side. This is a very easy way, to sum up the franchise filled with so many characters.
This nail set is like a breath of fresh air. I truly love the minimalistic yet colorful look. I like how each design is inside a circle or a box. It’s overall just adorable!
I really love how well utilized the galaxy designs are. They serve as really good dividers for the character designs as a full character set may be overwhelming for some.
We’re keeping things much more simple in this set. I like the white and black nail combination as it still adds dimension to the look.
Here’s another one of those adorable character nail sets. These sets are great for when you want to personalize your nails as you can choose which characters you paint on your nails.
If you’re the type to wear bold and sultry nails, you can still do so with the Star Wars theme! The great thing about this set is that the red polish could look really good with different skin tones.
I’m a huge fan of Lego nail art but even I hadn’t thought of Lego Star Wars as a nail style.
Here’s the perfect nail set for those who want something stylish and trendy! Just look at these adorable swirls! I also love the unique colorway, as we’ve mostly seen a lot of black and white.

What I truly love about this nail set is how there are so many bright colors in the set. It helps liven up the look.
Just look at those adorable Mickey moons! This would be such an excellent time to play find the hidden Mickey!
Here’s an entire Yoda nail set mixed with a lot of glitter. This set works because it really fits the entire galaxy theme.
Here’s an adorable color-filled nail set dedicated to the Rebel alliance that bravely stood against the evils of the Empire. Simply stamping in those symbols really makes this fit for Star Wars.
If you prefer low-key looks, I’d recommend these black nails topped with these glitters that look like stars. This is great for those who don’t want nails that necessarily scream Star Wars.
What I mostly love about these nails are the dynamic shapes. The wavy borders are such a cool alternative to French tips.
Here’s another way to wear a simpler Star Wars set. Not many people are fans of black polish, so these nude nails are a great alternative.
We’re ending this collection with this absolutely adorable pink set! It looks natural, but it’s also got this realistic-looking adorable Yoda design which is always a plus!
