It goes without saying that
the starring Barbie film Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling has all but defined the summer of 2023, with what seems like endless beauty trends (including the “Barbie bangs” hair cut) and pink-hued Barbie collaborations dropping by the day — and across categories, too. Even Burger King hopped on the Barbie bandwagon and dropped a (questionable) hot pink menu item.
The same can be said about buzzy manicures, too, with countless A-listers trying their hand at
the Barbiecore nail art trend in recent months. Namely? Robbie herself on more than one occasion (well, duh), Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa, Nicki Minaj, Emily Ratajkowski, Cardi B, and many more.
With the sunny summer months cooling off and making way for the fall season, one may think that
the pink obsession would soon fade, too. Though ICYMI, expert manicurists in the industry recently shared with Bustle that pink nail polish will still be major through the autumn months — alongside more expected hues like red and emerald, too.
For the at-home painters who want to get in on the trend, here are 19 editor-approved pink nail polish hues to shop right now, from
bold hot fuchsia to more understated shades of sheer pink. 2 Margot Robbie’s Sheer Barbie Pink
