The Coolest Festival-Inspired Nail Art I'm Copying from Instagram Right Now

Festival season is the one time of the year where it’s pretty much socially acceptable to go out of your comfort zone and go completely extra with the rhinestones and glitter. It’s time to step out of our cold winter nights and bask in the sun at long-awaited festivals.

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Not all of us can afford or have the time to go to festivals like Coachella (Me? Salty? Psh.). You probably want me to stop hyping how great they are. I get it, really. However, you should totally celebrate festival season without actually attending a festival. Festival style and beauty is taking over right now, so why not try out new colorful and glittery looks, even if you're not at the main event?

The perfect way to celebrate festival season whether you’re going to a festival or not is, of course, with gorgeous nail art. It’s subtle enough to wear in the comfort of your own home, but also glamorous enough to stand out. Whether you want to try out boho-inspired or geometric nails, check out these super cool festival-themed nail art ideas.

Who doesn’t love a nice ombré? You could also switch up the colors with pinks, oranges, and purples.

This design has a lot of studs and outlines, which would really complement your linen, cool-girl outfits.

Loooove this! It could also look great in red rather than blue.

This super funky look is another great way to step out of your comfort zone if you don’t really wear bright colors.

Don’t you absolutely love all these ideas? You can even switch up the colors for each one, making it unique to your own taste. I can’t wait to try out some of them. Happy festival season!
