In the kaleidoscope of nail polish colours, there’s one hue that has stood the test of time and continues to make a subtle yet bold statement – pink.

Beyond its (pretty outdated) association with being feminine and girly, pink nails have evolved into a versatile and timeless choice that transcends trends (looking at you, Margot Robbie and Barbiecore).

This gentle yet vibrant shade has found its way into the hearts (and fingertips) of most of us, whether you prefer bright neons or understated tones.

That’s why we’ve curated 60 of the *best* pink nail designs for any event, occasion, length, shape, and time of year – that’s right, we’ve definitely got you covered on this one.

So, let’s paint the town pink?!
