Dopamine Nails Inspiration: 9 Of The best Designs To Inspire Your Next Manicure


Dopamine nails are all over our Insta feed – and they’re seriously brightening our day. First came dopamine dressing, then it was the turn of dopamine beauty, and now it looks like the trend for bright, mood-boosting colour has trickled down into the world of nail art via dopamine nails. For ages, we were all obsessed with minimal, barely-there looks – you know, your-nails-but-better which is great and all, but there’s also no denying that it’s a bit, well boring – but tides are turning and it looks like bright shades are in for summer.

And to be honest, we couldn’t be happier about it, because as far as we’re concerned there’s nothing more joy-inducing than a fresh mani, especially when there’s a fun pop of colour involved. It also means that you can really step out of your comfort zone and truly go wild. Want multi-coloured zebra print? Do it. Fancy injecting some neon into your mani? We’re all for it. Or maybe you’re indecisive and want different colours and/or designs on each hand (or even on each nail)? Yas queen, go forth and conquer.

But for those of you who want to embrace everything that the dopamine nail trend has to offer but aren’t sure where to start, we’ve rounded up a bunch of our favourite looks for you to screenshot and take to your next appointment. So whether you’re going for bright block colour or a fun design, we’ve got you covered.
