Although reds, nudes and pinks are typically the most popular nail colors, there’s a special place in our heart for purple nail designs. Depending on what tone of purple you go for, you can create so many unique looks that are perfect for fun y2k vibes, girly girls, the grunge aesthetic, or even Halloween!

Purple is a regal color that commands attention and looks stunning when done right. If you haven’t tried the color for yourself yet, browse our top purple press-on nail picks below for inspiration! These glue-on nails are beyond easy to apply and maintain, plus they’re reusable an infinite amount of times as long as you keep them clean.

Of course, if you would rather recreate these at home or in a salon, be our guest. Simply save your favorite designs to your phone or Pinterest to retrieve them later!
