Our favourite month of the year is here; Pride month! As fabulous and flamboyant as our coveted rainbow flag is, we understand not everyone is sprinting to their wardrobe to dress head to toe in every colour imaginable. Showing your sisterly support can come in all shapes and sizes so this pride month, we bring you 6 pride-inspired nail designs that let your LGBTQ+ views shine through; all from within your comfort zone. Think rainbow tips, muted pastel shades and even a nude with an accented nail. Whether you’re loud and proud or a subtler supporter, we’ve got you covered for all the month festivities.
Dripping rainbow tip? Yes, please! Rather than opting for a full-throttle multi-coloured mani, adding LGBTQ+ colours to the tip makes for a modern take on our beloved french nails. Add a dripping paint effect and you’re good to go.
The marble mani has taken over as the nail design of the year, let alone season. This pride month sport yours to support in LGBTQ+ vibrant colours of greens, purples, yellows and just about any other colour you can whack on there. More is more!
This one is for the minimalists among us. Supporting Pride month isn’t dependent on wearing the rainbow flag, but on standing in solidarity. Go about your usual nude manicure and add a rainbow tip to an accent nail. Subtle yet supportive; we’re all about it!
Serve us all the pastels please! Think baby pinks, soft lemon shades, muted blues and sage greens. Take a new mellow twist on rainbow colours and use their pastel counterparts. It’s the perfect pairing for pride month plus an essential add-on to any summer wardrobe.
We’re loud, we’re proud, we’re here and we’re queer; this is not one for the conservatives (pun fully intended)! Go all out with a bright range of rainbow shades inclusive of vibrant blues, neon pinks and vivacious yellows to celebrate the month to the fullest.
This one is for the DIY champions out there. Easily replicated at home, just add a little stripe of colour to each nail with a cool and collected matte finish. Barry M varnish is always our go-to choice.
Which design will you sport to support? Let us know your faves in the comments below.
If you are going to the many Prides this years, stay somewhere with style, and that’s LGBTQ+ friendly.
Enjoy, Team Nonchalant x
