8 Barbiecore Nail Trends
Move over “Clean Girl Aesthetic” because “Barbiecore” is taking over. This nostalgic, dopamine-induced trend embodies the bright and vibrant signature-pink aesthetic of none other than the iconic fashion doll. And one way to get in on the latest craze is to opt for a Barbiecore inspired nail design.

Check out these eight Barbiecore nail looks that will inspire your client to take on this trend.

1. Barbie French Mani: This look puts a Barbie spin on the classic French manicure by adding hot pink tips to a beige base coat.

2. Pink Ombre: Can’t decide which shade of pink to use? How about all of them! Use five solid shades of pink on each hand, including colors like blush, fuchsia, hot pink, and bubblegum.
