Bandana Nail Art Looks for 2021

Bandanas are a tried-and-true way to tie back your hair, protect your face or add a pop of color to your outfit, but the print also makes for standout nail art. Whether you opt for classic red or blue or choose a less traditional hue, bandana nail art instantly makes your manicure Insta-worthy and trend-ready. Keep reading for our favorite bandana nail designs on Instagram.

Cherry Crush

These hand-drawn bandana nails by Las Vegas-based manicurist @ajsnailss are exactly what we picture when we think of the timeless accessory. 

Anything-but-Basic Blue

Who said you can’t mix a traditional bandana print with a little bit of glam? Accent French tips and a long shape with a matte top coat set this look apart.

A French Tip With a Twist

French tips will likely never go out of style when it comes to nail art, but putting an edgy twist on it with a bandana print? Well, that takes this nail look to the next level.

Baby Blue and Baby Pink Bandanas

Pink or blue? Why pick when you can have both! These sharp-tipped stiletto nails are intricately painted with a bandana effect against different pastel bases, giving a cool and unique alternating look.

Black and White

Go bold with your bandana print by putting it in black and white. With this detailed design and a couple of French tip accent nails, this look is anything but neutral.
