Taylor’s Mismatched Mani Started A Trend, So Here Are 9 Inspo Pics

There’s a new spring nail trend on the rise, and now I can’t wait until my next nail appointment! If you’ve been on TikTok lately, then you’ve probably seen a different nail trend literally every week. Everyone loved the viral lip gloss mani that was seen on celebs like Kylie Jenner and J.Lo. Then all of a sudden, short nails made a comeback and everyone hopped on the trend. But now, mismatched nails are the latest obsession! 

Although mismatched nails (or multicolored nails) have been a style for a while now, it’s been getting a lot of attention recently after Taylor Swift was seen sporting the look on Instagram. Swift painted each nail representing a different album to celebrate her Eras Tour. Swifies quickly took note, and recreated it themselves for their Eras Tour look inspiration. Now, this trend has gone outside Swift’s fandom, and is becoming the perfect spring nail inspo.

Refinery29’s Megan Decker detailed how she got her multicolored mani with tips from celebrity nail artist, Julie Kandalec. Decked was told to choose two to four analogous colors, which are next to each other on the color wheel. Doing this will make sure that the shades complement each other. She also says the key to this manicure is having a neutral shade on three out of five fingers to prevent your nails from looking too chaotic. You could even use shades from your personal spring color palette, if you really want the perfect color combo! 

There are so many ways you can make this manicure unique to your own style. You can try out different color patterns or even add nail art. If you need some fun ideas, here are nine mismatched nails that are the perfect nail inspo!
