Aura Nails: A Mainstay in Nail Art Trends


Aura nails, also known as blush nails or sometimes eyeshadow nails, have captivated the nail art world as a fun and vibrant trend. This innovative manicure features a burst of diffused color radiating from the center of the nail, tapping into the renewed fascination with auras — the colorful electromagnetic fields that surround a person’s body and reflect their energy.

Here’s why you should consider incorporating aura nails into your salon’s offerings.


The beauty industry is ever-evolving and staying ahead of trends is crucial. Aura nails are currently in the spotlight, gaining popularity for their unique and customizable look. By offering aura nails, your salon can attract clients who are eager to try the latest and most stylish trends. These nails are not only trendy but also offer a unique way for clients to express their individuality through their choice of colors and finishes.


Creating aura nails also taps into your personal creativity.  Since this trend can be achieved with a multitude of artistic techniques, any nail pro can achieve an array of variations at any skill level. You can use airbrushes, sponges, gels, pigments, or even eyeshadows to achieve the burst of centralized color. This versatility allows for endless creativity and personalization. Whether your clients prefer a subdued matte finish, a high-impact chrome look, or the classic glossy finish, aura nails can be easily tailored to fit their style. This flexibility ensures that every client can achieve a look that feels uniquely their own.


Once the base aura nail design is complete, the decoration possibilities are limitless. From soft starbursts or hand-painted flowers to intricate stones, metallic accents or even 3D jelly enhancements, you can offer clients a wide range of embellishments to express their individuality. This level of customization ensures that every client leaves with a unique and personalized manicure with colors and art that vibe with their mood and energy. 


By embracing the aura nail trend, your salon can differentiate itself from competitors. Offering specialized services that are in high demand can attract new clients and boost your salon’s reputation as a leader in nail art innovation. This look is a must-try for any salon looking to stay current with beauty trends, offer versatile and mood-enhancing designs, and stand out in a competitive market. Embrace this colorful, energy-infused manicure trend to delight your clients and elevate your salon’s services.
