Nexgen Nails: The word Nexgen is short for ‘next generation’: an act of being unintentionally creative, or simply just ready for the next big hit. Are you ready for the Nexgen?
Chic and Trendy Nexgen Nail Colors
Our list of chic Nexgen nail designs is full of choices to satisfy any lady’s preferences. From short to extremely long, mono to multicolored, and goofy to extra formal, we have it all!
#1. Sea Sparkle
You know us, we love a good sparkly nail! These long square nails show us all how it should be done: by mixing greens and blues at the ends of a clear base, and outlining in gold and green glitter!
#2. Just The Tips
If you’re all about the drama, you must try long stiletto nails with a half glittered red and half black tip. White is used to create a cool swirl with a red rhinestone middle. Outline the tips in white dots for definition.
#3. Pink Polka Dots
If you’re on the hunt for an adorable Nexgen nail style, pink polka dots are just for you! A light pink graces the long square nails here, but the white accent nail is where those dots pop.
#4. Rainbow Iridescence
Long pure black nails with a rainbow iridescence are practically the definition of Nexgen. The easiest way to get this style is by using colored pieces of tape.
#5. Extra Long and Gold
OK, when your special occasion calls for costume or glamour, you know these extra long nails won’t let you down! Their Nexgen gold and nude nails beautifully show off black details and shiny crystals.
#6. Just Teal
Nexgen doesn’t mean you absolutely have to have detail: a simple teal nail qualifies too! Use this gorgeous matte color on short squoval nails.
#7. Sweetheart Red
Don’t stress over finding the perfect Valentine’s Day nail style! These Nexgen nails are more than ready to show you off with their shiny red and white selves.
#8. Nude with Negative
On short squoval nails, thin pink lines help to define negative space between pastel pink, purple, and yellow nails. Place one or two tiny crystals at the centers of lines for a little sparkle.
#9. Holly Jolly
Start the month of December off right with sparkly green Nexgen nails. On your ring finger, break it up with a glittered silver polish and green holly.

On your wedding day or when you’re the bridesmaid, dress up your look with white Nexgen nails. These long stiletto nails are painted in pure white, feature a crystal-lined cuticle, and show off large 3D flowers on the ring fingers.
#11. Red Nexgen Nail Design
Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, Christmas, or you just love the color red, long square nails with a combination of red and sparkly red are gorgeous. Use gold or silver crystals to line one nail, making sure to feature a colorful stone in the middle.
#12. Light Pink Nexgen Nails
For those girly girls who want just a little sparkle on their Nextgen nails, opt for light pink with one thin gold line from top to bottom. You can either leave the line solid or break it up with a gold bead.
#13. Marble Nexgen Nail Art
We will never say no to a marbled nail design and these Nexgen tie dye marbled nails are no exception! Their colorful swirls are perfectly shown off on long square nails.
#14. Chrome Nexgen Nails
Chrome nail polish is another way to bring the shine and shimmer to Nexgen nails. Use a mixture of colors on a few of the nails and pick one nail as the feature for a single color, like the gold one above.
#15. Ombre Nexgen Nails
If you prefer a soft nail design, you’ll probably love a pale lavender ombre. The soft transition from nude to light purple is as smooth as could be.
#16. Black Nexgen Nails
When your pure black Nexgen nails need some sparkle, just paint the tips with gold glittered polish. Not enough? Add a little more to that ring finger!
