10 Holographic Nail Ideas That Serve Serious Coachella Vibes

Live every day like it’s festival season.

Holographic nails are so eye-catching, you won't need to add any extra accessories.

Sweet springtime is finally upon us, and summer is quick on its heels — which means it’s just about time for those outdoor music events and weekend-long parties so many have been missing for the last few years.

After being cancelled two years in a row, Coachella is now back with a vengeance, kicking off the highly-anticipated festival season with its first weekend of back-to-back, all-day music starting in just a few days (on April 15). With headliners including Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, The Weeknd, Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, and more — the genres are just as diverse as the beauty and fashion looks will likely be — and I personally can’t wait for all of the boho inspo that will be flooding my Instagram feed come Friday.

From the unexpected comeback of heavenly halo braids, to Euphoria-inspired eyeliner stickers hitting the market, festivals (and the warmer months, really) are the perfect time to experiment with your look. Whether you’re more into a minimalist opalescent shimmer or statement-making works of abstract nail art, below are some of the most inspiring holographic nails to either press or paint on yourself, or show your trusted nail tech at your next appointment.


The Marbled Holo

Go for a more minimalistic nail look with a pop of holographic, marbled details that stun.


The Black-Holo French Mani


The Quartz Mani

Inspired by selenite and quartz crystals, this mani painted by celebrity nail artist, Kim Truong, gives off nothing but good vibes.


The Holo Flames

These holographic, white-outlined flames bring some serious heat to any look.


The Golden Holographic Shimmer

For this exact gold-hued glitter mani moment, pick up Olive & June’s OBVI (available in both polish and press-ons).


The Opalescent Glow

For my fellow natural glam lovers, paint on a soft opalescent glow à la Lights Lacquer’s Clara polish.


The Glass Holo

Marmalade Nails’ Looking Glass Press-Ons are inspired by crystal-clear glass, but have a unique holographic finish that catches the light.


Holo Hearts

Top a clear manicure with some holographic hearts for a sweet (and easy) look that gives all the early 2000s nostalgia.


The Abstract Holo Gems

Adorn your nails with mismatched gemstones that have a holographic glow.


The Glitter Ombré

Add a bit of chunky glitter to the tips of your nails for an ombré effect that’s a playful take on the classic French mani.
