You know what I love about the internet? The fact that every once in a while we get trends that seem to come out of nowhere but are so creative and so stunning! Like this recent comic book / cartoon nails trend that’s swept through the internet.
I know I can’t be the only one that’s low-key obsessed with getting their nails done! There is just something so satisfying about having a fresh set of nails (am-I-right?!). And let’s be honest, I can’t be the only one that spends what is probably an (*ahem*) unhealthy amount of time scrolling through pinterest looking for nail inspo!
So when this 2D cartoon nails trend tornadoed across our collective explore pages, it was something fresh and new and fun and bold to try, right?! I love a good optical illusion but it still somehow blows my mind that a few simple black lines can make nails look 2D and realistic. That’s what’s so fun about this nail trend!
If somehow you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen the comic book nail designs, you’re about to be blown away! They’re literally so creative and cool and a fun idea for your next nail set.

Brown Comic Aesthetic Nails
Brown is such a stunning (and weirdly under-appreciated) nail color, but when you think of brown nails you kinda think of it more like a safe, neutral color. But these nails are far from safe and neutral, these brown comic book inspired nails are bold and fun!
Red and Black Comic Book Nails
Oh my gosh we love a bold red nail design! You can take it to the next level with the trendy comic book design. It looks so good (and way more realistic) matte instead of glossy!
Pastel Comic Book French Tip Nails
How to spice up an already uhmmm interesting nail design? With a pastel French tip of course, and not just any pastel French tip, a rainbow pastel French tip!
Brown Accent Comic Aesthetic Nails
This is another great way to spice up this nail trend. Just accent a few nails with the comic book design and for the other nails just regular solid color. Brown and black is a great combo (and it’s that specific beigey/khaki brown that’s so stunning with black!)
