Terrazzo is likely already on your home decor moodboard, but as seen on Instagram, the marble-esque pattern deserves to be pinned as nail inspo, too. The best part about this trend is that it’s super easy to DIY. Just pick a few of your favorite colors, grab a detailed brush and start painting polish in small spots to mimic the speckled home-decor design. From nude polish with a dotted accent nail to a chic French mani, we’re rounding up our favorite terrazzo nail art from Insta, below. 

Oh So Classic

The gold lining under the tip of this updated French mani makes it extremely chic, and the terrazzo details  keep things playful. The design sticks with jewel-toned colors, but you can mix it up to make it your own.

Winter Blues 

This year may have you feeling blue, but this matte mani is sure to be a mood booster. The base polish has a blue-gray undertone that reminds us of the Essie shade Mooning. The terrazzo design is placed more sparingly here, giving it a colorful vibe. 

Pretty in Pastels 

Want to embrace the terrazzo look but don’t want your nails to look like a slab of granite? We feel you. That’s where this pastel rendition comes in. The light, girly colors ensure this mani stays feminine, but the geometric designs keep it on trend. 

Au Naturale 

Keep things simple by recreating this subtle take on terrazzo nails. The nude polish goes with every outfit and lets the design stand out. You can dot the neutral-toned pattern on every nail or just a few. 

Gimme S’mores 

Satisfy your sweet craving with this s’more-inspired mani. Just use a white base coat to represent the marshmallow and then use brown and nude colors to add graham cracker and chocolate accents. 

Black Terrazzo Is the New Black

If a black polish is your go-to for fall and winter, spice it up with one terrazzo-embellished nail. While we love this blue, brown and white vibe, some neon or pastel speckles would also look cool — it’s totally up to you.
