Best Nature-Inspired Nail Scapes

Between glitter makeup, studded hair looks and graphic neon eyeliner, 2022 beauty trends have proven that more really is more. The same sentiment rings true with nails, too.  

Landscape-styled nail art — aka nail scapes — are completely taking over our Instagram and TikTok feeds. These intricate designs feature silhouettes of terrains found around the world and look like miniature works of art on your nails. Ahead, find seven of our favorite nature-inspired nail scapes, including sketches of sunny deserts, snow-covered forests, tropical nail art, and more.

Aurora Borealis

Turn your fingers into a mesmerizing night sky with art inspired by the northern lights. Aside from the tree decals, this gradient is easy to DIY — all you need are black, deep blue and green polishes.

Sunken Treasure

Add some glitz to an oceanic manicure with some sunken treasure. Mini nail gems and pearls work perfectly.

Out of This World

Take the galaxy mani trend to a new level by turning your nails into a full solar system with planet decals.

Winter Wonderland

Snowflake nail art can sometimes feel a bit kitschy. Elevate a wintry mani with a sophisticated and snowy forest scape. Glittery nail polish enhances the look of the night sky.

Tropical Vibes

Going on a tropical vacay? Match your mani to your destination with cute toucan decals and vibrant polish shades that mimic the vivid sunsets.

Wild West

Give your western nailscape some dimension by asking your nail tech to paint shadow details of cacti and horses in front of a hazy sunset.

Walking Through the Woods

Changing autumn leaves are one of nature’s most beautiful works of art. Recreate it on your nails for an incredible seasonal mani. We’re obsessed with this design from @artmuva that looks like a watercolor painting.
