It's no secret beauty lovers use hair, nail and makeup trends as a creative outlet to express themselves. Well, the new aura nail trend takes it one step further and allows you to communicate your vibe through your nail design. Your aura, AKA the unseen energy that surrounds you (or simply, your vibe), can now be seen via this new nail trend that combines a base color and an airbrushed circle, with the color of the airbrushed circle representing your aura.
A yellow aura means you're confident and charismatic, pink means you're kind and loving, green means you're compassionate and nurturing, blue means you're powerful and insightful and red means you're energetic—just to name a few. Pro tip for getting an opaque aura: airbrush the circle, let it dry, then add another layer. Below, we've rounded up some of the best aura nail designs in all shapes, lengths and colors. Some designs are multi-colored to incorporate multiple vibes, while others are monochromatic to depict one strong energy.
