Unicorn nail art might be one of the cutest ways to add a little magic to your next manicure. A growing trend and a more versatile one than you might think, there’s a unicorn design for every occasion and style. From fun and flirt colorways to sleek style with a little mythical edge, there’s a reason this is a growing trend.
After scrolling through
thousands of different designs (and loving every moment of it) we’ve collected our favorite and covered a range of magical styles. So whether you want to DIY this style yourself or you want some inspiration for your next mani, there’s a look for you.
Now, I give you something cute but quite detailed. Unicorn nails because we have that cute unicorn face on her thumb. But I have to say that my favorites are the ones on the middle and pinky fingernails. Sunsets are love and it’s hard to go wrong with cloud nail designs.
A simple design with a unicorn color vibe without the design itself. Check out these nails that used unicorn magnet gels to give off a magical feeling. Not too fancy and easy to apply, I bet anyone can wear this without the help of nail artists.
Do you see that ring fingernail that looks like a unicorn horn? That is where the “unicorn nails” started; that is what the original “unicorn nails” look like. In this set, though, it became more unicorn because of its colors.
Do you have any friends that love unicorns? Maybe they also need to see this list, particularly this image. Even if they don’t wear nail arts, I think they’re gonna start wanting to try one.
These are magnet nails with some unicorn glitter design. I picked them to include in this list because I know you’re going to be obsessed with them as much as I do.
Do you see those unicorn faces? Right you are, those are her ears and eyelashes. It’s funny how we can immediately determine unicorns when we haven’t really seen one. Ah, the real influence of art and media.
Here’s a more colorful version of the previous entry. So, if you like it bright and vivid, you might want to try these instead. Oh, and those cute stars on her ring fingernail are unavoidable add-ons, all right.
Something adorable for the cheeky lady. Ask your nail artist to write down your name, too, when you get these. Or maybe you can name your unicorn as you please!
Here are other determinants of unicorn nails: long, pointy, and shiny. This set we have here, for instance, looks so unicorn-ly elegant in terms of length, point, and surface.
I’m not quite sure which of the designs in this set is captivating my attention. I’m guessing it’s the ice cream, but I can’t also take my eyes away from that pinky unicorn fingernail.
Might not be the best set for those who are looking for something more mature and advanced. Still, I’d recommend it to those who want it lively and whimsical.
Unicorn nails that are, without a doubt, sumptuous and stylish. I like how these long, pointy nails look so good on her hands. More than that, I love how they look so majestic even in different styles.
Well, if you are getting tired of pink (as we’ve been seeing a lot of pink ever since the beginning of this article), you might want to try these unicorn nails in blue color. They are quite similar to the previous design, though.
These aren’t technically “unicorn nails” like how we perceive unicorns, but they sure have a unicorn aesthetic. Likewise, they can be a wonderful addition to your list. In my case, especially, I like this shade of green.
Ooh, I like how they interpreted “unicorn” in these nails. If you were a unicorn, would you also like to have a horn with rainbow colors? Ah, those glitters and the whole color combination are beyond amazing.
I learned that unicorn nails can also look like this. See those french tips that form an inverted V-shape or a triangle? They say it’s because the shape formed, excluding the tip, looks like a unicorn horn. The butterfly nail design is a nice bonus and the color contrast works well.
Pink and purple are usually the colors that represent unicorns. Lovely, eh? I love those 3D crystals, they are making the whole thing look so expensive and royal.
Another fresh approach to unicorn nails, this set is complete with glittering crystals and gems that can make anyone’s hand look so dazzling and outstanding. Is it overkill? Nah, it’s just elegantly fantastic.
Unicorn nails are usually in light colors, indeed. But who said that they can’t be in dark shades? These nails know how to set the mood into a dark yet mystical one.
If unicorns really do exist, do you think they may come from other galaxies? I bet this is how their space looks like if the answer is yes. Ooh, I love how those moon and stars shine so brightly! If you like this design check out the moon and star nail list or even the galaxy nail designs.
Whoa, I am so definitely adding these to my list. Can you see how they convey grandeur and sophistication even while staying still? It feels like the first time I’ve fallen in love with nail arts.
Here’s something for those who want a good mix of delight and splendor. Is it only me or does that marble design on her ring fingernail really look like a union of a pegasus and a unicorn?
Well, just a simple set of unicorn nails for your reference if you like it simple and neat. These will look especially good on people with fair or white skin.
Here is an inspiration if you like your unicorn horn-designed nails to come in different colors. My favorite is blue and glittered green, what’s yours?
Hah! This one’s truly breathtaking and remarkable. Don’t you think so? It is literally a set of unicorn nails with unicorn-colored gels, unicorn stamps and stickers, and 3D rainbows and stars. Best dressed nails!
How about something with a touch of your favorite season? I love all seasons, but I really find winter quite fascinating because of its mysteriousness. Snowflake nail art doesn’t have to just be seasonal.
Pastel rainbow nails or also known as unicorn shades. Love how this set looks so simple yet so remarkably phenomenal.
Something playful again for those who want a bit of lively and mischievous on their nails. Just like what the quote on her ring fingernail says, I hope that you find happiness and that you genuinely sparkle wherever you go.
I love the glitter effect that the artist sprinkled on these nails. Not to mention that those crystal gems are precious. They give me not just unicorn vibes, but fairies too.
I’m not going to deny it. I am totally, absolutely in love with these nails. I so much adore how those unicorn colors blended so well with the base polish. And, you know that I am particularly very fond of such abstract lines.
This color ain’t even royal blue yet it looks so royal-like. These are the nails befitting of a Queen as they emanate beauty, elegance, and sophistication.
Almond nails in unicorn colors for something so cute and lovely.
Silver unicorn tips to emphasize your natural nail colors, as well as their almond shape. I think they used foils for those tips.
Whoa, isn’t the combination of pink and blue so amazing? These nails look so galactic and heavenly that I can’t even pick a favorite. Can I say I love them all?!
I am amazed by how the flowers surrounding the horns were neatly applied. And, I also would like to commend the color combination used. White and teal complemented well the unicorn colors on her ring fingernail.
Priceless unicorn nails for our pink and rainbow lovers out there. Unicorns look so cute when they are sleeping.
Ah, now, here’s something you might have expected, but you will still get surprised when you already wear them. Unicorn horns on your fingernails. They look so authentic and surreal.
Are these nails too colorful for you? I am so fine with having them! I’ll make sure to add these to my list.
Unicorn nails that perfectly suit a suit. Get what I mean? It seems like they are designed for our busy and determined working girls.
Neon, rainbow, and glitters… unicorn feels! I might wear these, but not in stiletto nails. I think they will look just fine even with short nails.
I like how the pastel-colored flowery dots in the background complemented the light pink base. And, of course, I love how those sleeping unicorns look so splendid even in plain black ink.
It may not be quite obvious but these elegant nails are unicorn-inspired. Can you see the gold line on her pointing fingernail? That’s the horn. And the thumb actually has the horn design in gold and black layers.
A clash of unicorn horns and mermaid scales, plus some abstract hearts and lines. A few of my favorite designs in one set. These nails are worth waiting for.
