Flower Nail Design Ideas
1. Nude Coffin Nails with Floral Design and Rhinestones
We’re starting off with a super trendy take on floral nails. These nude coffin nails are super popular on their own, but add in colorful pastel floral details and you have an insanely on-trend nail look for 2023.
You can definitely get these done at most nail salons, or you can buy these nails as a set of press-ons on Etsy.
2. Dried Flower Nails
Here’s a more subtle take on floral nails that looks great on any nail length. This look combines white almond shaped nails with dried floral nail stickers. The design is one part vintage, one part modern, and would be oh-so chic for spring.
3. Pastel Floral Nail Art
Now here’s a design you would definitely need to have done at a salon — it would be so worth it, though!
These nude and clear acrylic pastel floral nails are beyond stunning. I bet they’d catch the light so beautifully. I could see these for a formal event in the spring or even a fun summer wedding.
Watch the tutorial above to see how they’re done, then head to the salon for a recreation.
4. Colorful Retro Flower Nails
Everything retro is back right now so these retro flower nails will look amazing with all of your outfits this year.
I love the mix of different colored flowers offset by the warm-toned nude polish underneath. The best part is, these are nail stickers, so you can mix and match them with any base polish you choose.
5. Green Nails with Flowers
Green nails pair so well with flower details and these daisy nails are so pretty and fun. As with the nails above, these have a trendy retro vibe that’s super in right now.
Again, the look above is done with nail stickers, so if green isn’t your favorite color, you could use these on top of any shade you love. So versatile and fun, and best of all, easy to achieve!
6. Summer Hibiscus Nail Art
Don’t these pink hibiscus flower nails remind you of the coconut girl aesthetic? I feel like they’d be right at home in the movie Blue Crush.
The best part about this look is that it’s a nail art tutorial you could totally pull off at home. It will just take a little practice and the help of a small detail brush set.

Colorful french tip nails are so popular right now, and you can make them even more interesting by adding a white flower design on top. These nails look like something you’d see on TikTok influencers and I’m obsessed.
What’s cool about these nails is that they’re actually press-ons, so if you want to skip the salon visit, you can pick them up on Etsy to wear again and again.
10. Girly Pink Rose Nails
This is definitely the girliest take on floral nails that we have on this list.
If you like glitter, glam, and all things pink, these are the flower nails for you! These would be perfect for the springtime or a Valentine’s Day date. Check out the tutorial above to see how this design comes together.
11. Nude Color Nails with Small White Flowers
For a simple and chic look, nude nails are always a great choice. You can add a little something extra to your basic nude polish with the addition of white flower nail art.
These nails are actually nail wraps so it’s super easy to get the look at home.
12. Blue and Purple Flower Nail Design
If you want to add some pretty colors to your floral nails, try layering colorful floral nail art over another color base. This look combines a light purple base with blue and green floral nail art.
While I love the purple base on these, if you wanted to use a color like nude, black, pink, or white, these flowers are actually nail tattoos that can go over your favorite color. They’d also look beautiful on pastel blue nails!
13. Black and Pink Floral Design
I love the eclectic, bohemian look of these black and pink floral nails. They combine black nails with a floral design alongside pink accent nails.
These would be so pretty to try this spring and summer. They’d also be amazing for vacation!

15. Colorful Flowers on White Nails
Here’s a colorful flower nails idea, done on simple white nails. The flower decals seen here come in all different shades so you can mix and match your favorites for a completely custom look.
You could even mix these with some of the other floral decals linked elsewhere in this post. The possibilities are endless.
16. Lilac Daisy Nails
Of all the nail designs in this post, these lilac daisy nails are my favorite. They’re colorful but subtle, girly but simple, and they practically scream springtime.
I’m even more obsessed with these because they’re actually press-ons. I never feel like going to the salon these days, so if I can just glue the nails on, I’m sold!
17. White Floral Lace Nail Art Design
These white floral lace nails would be so pretty for a wedding or formal event.
In the photo above, the white floral decals are applied to clear acrylic nails, but you could also add them to your natural nails, or as an overlay to any color you like.
18. Pastel Pink Flower Nail Design
I’m obsessed with these cherry blossom nails, especially as we get closer to cherry blossom season!
This look is all about a glossy nude nail accented with these cherry blossom decals. The nail shape is key here, too — this design definitely looks best with an almond shaped nail as seen above.
19. Chrome Nails with Painted Flowers
Here’s an edgy and unexpected take on flower nails, combining an oil slick chrome polish with a painted pink rose accent.
These would be cool for the fall and winter seasons in particular, or any time if your style is on the edgy side.
20. Clear Nail Polish with Minimal Flowers
If you just want a hint of fun florals and a low-maintenance nail look, this idea is perfect! It’s just these very simple daisy dot nail stickers done on glossy clear nail polish.
