It’s time to hop on the swirl nail manicure trend! We compiled 45 of the cutest and the best swirl nails for you to recreate.

Chances are you’ve already seen swirl nails around Instagram or Pinterest. It’s hard to avoid them – swirl nails are one of 2021’s biggest manicure trends, and if you haven’t tried it yet, now is your chance. This abstract nail art is fun, magical, groovy – and it is packed with so much personality and good vibes.

Swirl nails have that groovy retro feel to them, which is perfect if you want something that will take you right back to memory lane. You can also pair swirl nails with different other retro nail designs like checkered patterns or even floral details. 

Swirl nails are pretty easy to achieve, all you really need is just a thin brush and two to three colors in order to create that swirly effect. But if you don’t have the time – it’s alright! Etsy has a TON of gorgeous ready-made press-on nails that you can get for a fair and affordable price. But if you’d rather go in for a manicure, just save your favorite design to your phone and show it to your nail tech! 

Below, we’ve featured our favorite designs for this nail trend. As mentioned, most of these are from independent nail techs, so if you like something you see, just click over to the retailer’s website to shop the nails!
