If you’ve been on any form of social media lately, then you will have definitely come across the coquette aesthetic. This ultra-feminine, girly, romantic trend has quickly made its way into the fashion world, taking the form of lace fabrics, bow detailing, pearl accessories, ballet flats and more, in a range of soft pink and pastel colours. The hashtag #coquetteaesthetic has over four billion views on TikTok alone, and lots of my favourite online creators and celebrities have been leaning into this trending style.

As someone who prefers a more neutral, pared-back aesthetic, I’ve been desperate to find a way to incorporate the coquette trend into my style more subtly, and I think I have just found the answer. That’s right, say hello to coquette nails. After scrolling on Instagram, I came across so many stunning nail designs that perfectly lean into this trending aesthetic, from floral nail art to pearl nail embellishments and more. So, whether you are already a fan of the trend and want to match your manicure to your outfit, or you want an easier way to try out the coquette trend for yourself, keep on scrolling for my favourite coquette nail designs that are perfect for the spring and summer months. 

First up is this stunning floral nail art. What I love about this is that you can keep your base colour neutral and let the pop of pastel pink do all the talking.

Bows are everywhere right now, so why not have them on your nails too?

The pastel blue and pink shades work together beautifully for this floral design.

If you want to make a bit more of a statement, you can’t go wrong with 3D pearl embellishments.

The perfect spring manicure does exist.

Pearl detailing can be subtle too.

If you’re not a fan of pastel colours, why not try this gold bow nail art instead?

I think this has to be my favourite coquette nail design, as I love the contrast between the pink and gold shades.

Dainty and delicate.

These pearls will be sure to make a statement.

If you want something super subtle, simply opt for a pastel pink shade.

This set from Nails Inc comes with two pink nail polish shades and pearl nail stickers, making it super easy to recreate your coquette nail look at home.

If you want to recreate any bow or floral designs, I recommend using a thin nail art brush like this one from Manucurist.

Pastel nail polishes are a must.

Finally, don’t forget to nourish your cuticles with some nail oil for a polished finish. This Kiko one features real rose petals and is giving me all of the coquette vibes.
