In the ever-evolving world of nail art, neon hues have emerged as a bold and vibrant trend, bringing an electrifying twist to the manicures.

Once reserved for tie-dye t-shirts and the 90s acid trip trend (which is back with full force, BTW), neon has come on leaps and bounds and turned into one of the classiest – and boldest – manicures seen on the likes of Kylie Jenner and Hailey Bieber.

So, let’s take a look at the best neon nail designs to take you through 2024.


1. Neon green coffin nails with flame designs

Combining the checkered nail trend and flames, these long neon green talons are bang on trend for 2024. If you’re not big on going to the salon, grab yourself a pair of these press on nails from Etsy.


2. Pastel neon green nails with 3D bubble effect

This pastel neon green is one of the prettiest nail polish colours I’ve ever seen! The 3D bubble texture effect is so cool.


3. Long neon yellow nails

Add sunshine to your fingertips with these bright neon yellow nails! Use this nail polish from Kiki London in the shade Yellow Caution to get the look.


4. Neon orange nails with negative space designs

These colours are giving serious summer vibes, and I’m SO here for it. Combining double French tips and cuffs in a lighter shade of orange, this set looks perfect with some dainty gold jewellery.


5. Short nails with bright mismatched nail designs

Short nails lend themself really well to neon shades since the colours are bold and bright but the length means they’re not too OTT.


6. Bright blue nails with dainty flower designs

This pretty set was created using blue polish from @nailsinc in the shade Summer Street.


7. Bright mismatched nails with 3D details and Union Jacks

Mismatched nails and 3D nails are both really big at the moment, and they’re the perfect accessory to brighten up an outfit or add a pop of colour.


8. Bright yellow and black long nails with dot work design

These nails are great for any season with the combo of black and yellow (although they do remind me of a yellow ladybird, so cute and a very fitting manicure for spring)!


9. Orange, yellow, and green tropical ombre French tip nails

They’re giving tropical beach vibes with a cocktail in hand.


10. Bright multicoloured short nails with 3D details

Sort of aura, sort of 3D, these designs look amazing on shorter nails.


11. Square neon nails with simple dot designs

The perfect neon mani for those of us who aren’t great with nail art! This one is so easy to create, all you need is polishes in the shades of your choice and a dotting tool for the design.


12. Bright French tip nails with colourful hearts

I love a classic French tip, but adding pops of colour adds a really modern twist, not to mention the cute heart details on this set. If you want to recreate a French tip manicure at home, you can purchase French tip stickers that just pop on and all you need to do is add a top coat!


13. Short mix and match fruit design nails

I’ve seen lots of people getting fruity with nail art like the set above!


14. Bright multicoloured mismatched nails with glitter

Another mismatched set combining neon, glitter, stripes, flames, stars, and smiley face designs.


15. Simple short neon nails

Prefer to keep your nails simple? These short – but bright – nails are perfect.


16. Neon leopard print coffin nails

You can’t go wrong with animal print, and this set is a great take on the trend. Lecente has some amazing nail foils so you can get the look from the comfort of your couch.


17. Nude short stiletto nails with neon ombre stripe design

Nude is a great base for neon nail art, and these bright and colourful ombre stripes look amazing on a natural canvas.


18. Short chrome nails with neon ombre flame designs

Hot or cold?


19. Matte neon colourful cow print nails

Another colourful animal print, this time it’s cows!


20. Nude nails with 3D neon green slime

Is this giving 3D slime? Or 3D lava lamp?? Either way, I’m obsessed


21. Silver sparkle nails with multicoloured neon flowers

A great set for spring, flowers are *officially* the mani of the moment – in my opinion.


22. Short neon aura nails with gems

Aura nails are huge ATM, seen on Lizzo, Hailey Bieber and Megan Fox. I love the addition of tiny gems on this set.


23. Monochrome and neon swirl nails

Amp up your monochrome mani with some neon.


24. Short round tortoiseshell nails with neon green and pink details

Tortoiseshell doesn’t really make me think of bright and colourful, but the neon pink and green on this set adds a really playful element to a usually classic neutral nail.


25. Neon ombre stripe square nails with negative space heart designs

The perfect Pride nails!


26. Checkered and colour block neon nails

The monochrome nails on this set makes the neon colours look even brighter – a great combo.


27. Neon pink long oval jelly nails white flames

This set is so fun! The ideal length to really show off the jelly finish and flame designs.


28. Long coffin nails with neon coral Canel logos

Coral is a great shade for most skin tones, and this neon shade is no exception. Rimmel’s Rimmel Super Gel Nail Polish in 047 Spiced Coral is the perfect shade for this trend!


29. Short black ombre stiletto nails with neon baroque designs

These have got to be some of the coolest nails we’ve come across in our roundups – and we’ve done a lot of them! The neon hues, black ombre, and cool baroque designs make it the perfect mani for any season.

This set is definitely one to bookmark for your nail tech.


30. Neon slime green cat eye nails

Chrome, velvet, and holographic nails are still around, but ‘cat eye’ is the new upcoming nail finish to look out for.


31. Valentine’s hot pink nails with white hearts 

Anyone getting Bratz vibes from these neon pink nails with painted hearts?!


32. Bright blue spring gel nails with pink and white flowers

The brightest of blues combined with white and bright pink, so cute for spring.


33. Summer long square nails with mismatched bloom designs and gems

If this mani doesn’t get you excited for summer, I’m not sure what will!


34. Beige fall nails with tiny neon details

This is a really easy one to create just using a thin nail brush or the sharp end of a cuticle pusher to add colourful dots to a nude mani.


35. Winter neon chrome nails with stars and gems

Christmas, but make it neon AND chrome. This is a seriously opulent set that will be perfect for Christmas and holiday events.


The takeaway

Ok, I think I’ve proven that neon is for every season, temperature, and event!

Whether you love intricate nail art and see a visit to the salon as part of your self-care routine or whether you prefer to cosy up with Netflix while painting your own fingertips, there’s a mani for all of us in this line-up.

If you try any of these on your nails/your friends nails/your boyfriends nails let us know in the comments – we would love to see your results!
