Butterflies were a big trend in the 90s and early 200s and with the rise of 2YK fashion, they’ve come back in style. Think everything from butterfly hair clips, accessories, clothing with the butterfly emoji, and of course, butterfly nails. 

As with many things, the Kar-Jenners kickstarted this trend in 2019 with Kylie Jenner sporting a cute set of pink butterfly nails. Ever since then, the trend has really taken on with many beautiful butterfly-themed nails appearing across social media. 

What I love about the trend is that it can be as subtle or as in your face as you want it to be: you can buy cute, small butterfly nail stickers and put them over a simple French manicure, or you can go all out with bold and bright acrylic nails. If you’re really adventurous, you can even get 3D butterfly ornaments and glue them to your nails!

Below, you’ll find the best butterfly nail designs that you can copy at home. Most of these nails are press-on nails, so you if you find something that you like, you can just click over to their retailer and add it to your cart. Otherwise, you can always save an image that you like for later and take it to your local nail technician to recreate!
