Dress up your coral tail with nails of the same hue, accented with a pop of gold! The index finger makes an ideal choice for a noticeable splash of color. Paint it a solid shade of gold, then transition to a scale pattern on the next finger over a light coral hue for visual interest. Finish your mermaid nails with solid coral tones for an immaculate look.
Get that glitter polish out! The galaxy trend is here to stay—at least for the time being, and we love this glamorous take on glitter nails bookended by solid colors. Deep purple and blue tones full of sparkles set the scene for an out-of-this-world look in gradient shades of color.
Ombre tails are still trending in the mermaid world, and you can add an unexpected twist to your nail design with half-moon nail art. Decide which color you’d like to highlight the most—coral or mint—then apply a solid layer to the middle finger. Now you can add those fine touches of color to the rest of the nail tips, and don’t forget to create your half-moon design just above the cuticle of your ring fingers!
This hot pink and ocean blue color combo reminds us of summertime. Maybe that’s why this particular Limited Edition tail is one of our best sellers! Get those hot hues onto your nails stat! You may want to recruit a professional nail tech to capture the exact design of these stylish nails. But you can always try your hand at recreating the look with the right colors!
These multicolored nails look so much like our best-selling Limited Edition tail, it’s almost surreal! Once you’ve “nailed” this design, don’t forget to grab your phone and squeeze in an epic selfie that showcases your nail + tail color combination. (Look here if you need mermaid photo shoot tips!)

You don’t have to be an Aussie from the land down under to rock this fusion of blues and greens. True to mermaid style, these ocean-inspired mermaid nails with a soft scale pattern evoke trendy, yet timeless vibes. Add a few crystal gems on your ring finger to “polish off” this look.
This unique pattern looks just like a turquoise gemstone, with its dark, lace-like pattern inspired by nature! That’s why we think its blue-hued base looks MER-mazing topped with an intricate pattern of black polish and sealed with a shiny, subtle sparkle.
