Uplifting the LGBTQ+ community is important year round, but Pride Month is a special time to get in the spirit and show your support. Whether you’ll be hitting up Pride parades or you have more low-key celebratory plans, sporting a rainbow manicure is a fun way to honor the community — and of course put you or your nail tech to the nail art test. Ahead, we’re sharing some of our favorite rainbow nail designs to try for Pride this year. 

Rainbow French Tips 

Funky French tip nail designs are always trending, and this rainbow take on the popular style has Pride written all over it. The arched rainbow tips are especially flattering if you have oval or almond nails.

Rainbow Skies 

This whimsical set features different colored rainbow designs on each nail, all with white star-like accents that add next-level detail to the mani.

After the Rain

After the rain comes the rainbow, and this manicure features a bold rainbow  across each nail as well as adorable cloud details. The look is finished off with a matte topcoat to give it a unique effect. If you want to try a matte mani, use the Essie Matte About You Matte Finisher

Glittery Rainbows

Rainbows meet the starry night sky in this dazzling celestial manicure. These stunning nails are proof that glitter and rainbows make a dynamic duo.   

Rainbow Happy Faces 

Pride month is definitely something to smile about, and this manicure certainly screams positivity. The swirly rainbows combined with happy faces on the ring fingers as accent nails are the ultimate joyful combination.

Rainbow Tie-Dye

If you’ll be sporting a tie-dye fit to a Pride parade this month, pair it with a tie-dye mani to match! It’s groovy, fun and the perfect intricate manicure to highlight rainbow hues. Pro tip: Make your mani last by topping it off with a coat of the Essie Stay Longer Top Coat.  

Rainbow Daisies

Ditsy daisies in rainbow hues make for an adorably girlie, ’70s-inspired mani. We love the flower power vibes and the contrast between the colorful blooms and the clear base.
