20 Festival Nail Art Designs

Festival season is officially here and we’ve got an exclusive backstage pass into the best festival nail designs, that will transport you to Glasto, Parklife or even Coachella, no matter where you are in the world.

Granted, you may think your outfit or makeup look take top priority, but really it should be your nails. It’s the only thing that will stand the test of time, all weekend long, rain or shine,

This year, we’re already seeing a whole lot of 3D nail art, bright and funky colours + prints, plus fun textures, that we know are going to continue taking over our festival manicures all summer long.

Plus, if you can’t go all out with your nails during festival season, then when can you?! It’s the perfect excuse to create (or request) that out-there design you’ve had your eyes on.
