Rainbow manicures have been popping up on our Instagram feeds over the last couple of months—each with a cooler iteration than the next. Although the OG rainbow manicure seems to be just different color on each nail, it’s since evolved and can take form of a rainbow French manicure or rainbow nail art (think a different nail design on each finger).


The appeal is obvious. Beyond being able to wear all your favorite shades at once, it fits perfectly with the many other trends everyone is obsessed with right now—stackable gold rings and summer dresses (even if we're all just staying at home!)


To pull off the look, you’ll need to stock up on a bunch of different shades. Shop our favorite colors for rainbow nails below:
