Periwinkle is a beautifully soft and pastel color. Periwinkle nails are, therefore, one of those things you just really have to add to your manicure bucket list. Because of the uniqueness and versatility of this shade, you can pick from a myriad of stunning designs and create an effect that no other hue can provide you with. That being said, we might have a few ideas in store. So, what do you say? Time for an eye-catchy, glamorous periwinkle manicure? Just looking for spring themed ideas? Check out these Spring Nail Designs you can do at home.

8 Periwinkle Nails Ideas and Designs

#1 Silver Glitter Inverted Gradient

We’re starting off with this gorgeous silver-periwinkle combo which sprinkles silver shimmers across your nail bed. This color combination clashes beautifully and, in a sense, is very reminiscent of a fantastical and unique starry sky.

#2 Pointy Almond

Everything about this picture is stunning, including the awing aesthetic of the finely adorned rings decorating the fingers. But, obviously, the real stars here are the nails, neatly polished in a pointy almond shape and sporting the periwinkle shade with confidence. For a subtle touch of dynamism, blend in a soft gradient in a similar shade or white.

#3 Soft Blues and Flowers

This polish is leaning more into the blue territory, perfect for all fans of azure out there. But the pastel color isn’t the only thing catching our attention here. This beautiful design creates an excellent balance between the plainness of the solid periwinkle and the floral pattern and gems embellishing some of the nails.

#4 Spangle Party

Keeping up with the theme, here’s yet another look which makes up for the simplicity of a neat periwinkle manicure. While four of your nails are plain and simple, disco is alive again on the fifth nail, decorated from top to bottom with sparkly spangles that shimmer in bright colors.

#5 Beige Gradient

The periwinkle proportions in this design are so little that you’d wonder why it’s even on this list. This is because the soft beige at the other end of the gradient blends in well with the rest of your skin, really making the periwinkle pop. It’s a literal splash of color!

#6 Fairy Dust

Isn’t this look so very reminiscent of fairies? The vibe probably stems from the rather intriguing arrangement of the shimmers and gems that decorate the nails. They’re a nice touch to an already elegant shade of polish.

#7 Easter Nails
