Nail trends are always changing and so are the must-have nail colors. This year one of the hottest colors to wear on your nails is lavender. The soft pastel purple has been seen on designer runway shows and pastels always make an appearance during the spring and summer seasons. It is only a matter of time before the lovely color makes its way onto your nails. To give you some nail design inspiration alert for the spring, we have found 21 lovely lavender coffin nails. Coffin is our nail shape of choice because the shape can be created in different lengths and it is simple to wear even if your nails are super long. So, with lavender coffin nails you obtain a trendy mani that is also practical. Read on and take a look at our collection of lovely nail designs created by talented nail artists. We have bold designs, subtle nails and more, so there is a mani to suit any occasion.
1. Glossy Lavender Coffin Nails
The first nail idea is simple and pretty. For this look, the long coffin nails are painted in soft and light lavender color. Nails like these are so simple to wear and they add color to your look in a low-key way. The mani can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion and as it is chic design, it would be great for special events like a wedding.
2. Ombre Chrome Lavender Nails
Ombre is still one of the hottest nail trends and when you combine it with a must-have color like lavender you obtain one stylish mani. Here is how to wear lavender ombre in style. Two of the nails have simple nude and purple ombre while the other two have a chrome effect. Both designs look astonishing and you can find ombre nail tutorials online. Recreate this or use one version of the ombre on all nails.
3. Lavender and Pink Coffin Nails
The soft pastel purple shades suit other colors too. One combo that we really love for spring is lavender and light pink. Below we have long coffin nails where two nails are lavender, one nail is shimmery purple and the rest are pink. As you can see, the different pink and purple tones look stunning together. You can try a similar design or use just glossy or matte colors in similar shades.
4. Statement Purple Nails with Marble Art and Rhinestones
Lavender can be such a soft and subtle color. But, if you do prefer bolder nail art, then this mani shows how to wear purple in a more statement making way. Two nails are the very light shade while one nail is matte and a darker tone. One nail also features purple marble art and the last nail is covered in rhinestones. We love this because of the different art used and because of the glamorous accent nail. You can find marble nail art tutorials on YouTube.
5. Holographic Lavender Nails
Next, we have a trendy nail idea to show you. For this look, the nails are a stunning coffin shape and are painted in a lovely light purple with a holographic effect. It is such a fun, stylish and simple to wear nail idea. These nails will be great for the spring and summer. You can buy holographic lavender nail polishes from brands like Rimmel.
6. Ombre and Clear Nails
The next nail idea is one of our favorites because it is so trendy and glam. This mani features a mix of ombre art and clear acrylic nails. The ombre is nude and very subtle lavender while the clear nails have a gold and silver foil design. We love the mixed metal foils and the jelly nails just give the lavender a more modern, stylish and edgy look. Recreate this or you can replace the clear nails with purple jelly nails.
7. Matte Purple Mani
Matte nails have become a must-have and with manicures like this one, we can see why. Here we have mid length coffin nails that are painted in a lovely matte lavender color. The different texture just jazzes up the simple design. You can buy matte polishes or use a glossy nail color with a matte top coat.
8. Stylish Purple Nails with Mermaid Art
Give your nails a mermazing makeover with a design like this one. Two nails are sparkly lavender, two nails are light purple and one nail has bright purple mermaid scale art. It is such a fun, unique and pretty design. Something quirky like this is great for the summer season. You can buy mermaid scale stencils online and the colors used are listed on the Instagram page below. But do take note that the colors listed are for professional gel nails, so you will want to find similar colors if recreating yourself at home.
9. Glitter and Ombre Nail Design
Glam up your nails with a purple design like this one. Most of the nails have different designs including bold purple glitter, block lavender color, purple ombre and block pink color too. The color palette used is stunning and it shows a more glitzy way to wear lavender. Recreate the whole look or just use one or two designs on all nails.
