Mismatched Nail Art Is The Freshest Manicure Trend Of Summer 2020

When you're doing your nails at home, sometimes it's fun to go rogue and paint each finger a different color — and it doesn't hurt that the rainbow manicure is one of the easiest and trendiest ways to wear nail art this summer. Now, we're seeing the purposefully mismatched style go a step beyond basic by adding designed accents, with a different print decorating each finger.

Call it asymmetrical, or even mismatched nails: The style is all about mixing up the design on each finger for a playful, eclectic look. From Kylie Jenner's geometric and animal-print combo to a '90s take on French tips, we've rounded up our favorite iterations of the trend, ahead.

On her recent Amangiri vacation, Jenner sported this mismatched minimalist manicure: a matte nude base with a different work of art on each fingernail, placing electric-blue leopard spots next to an evil-eye print.
Here, nail artist Park Eunkyung of Unistella shows a remixed French manicure inspired by cutesy '90s prints like cherries and rainbows.
Coming out of the UK, this style from Nails Bab salon features an array of hand-painted shapes, all rimmed with gold polish.
If you have beginner-level nail art skills, make like content creator Melanie (she goes by the handle Overglowedit), who achieved this look using press-on stickers by Orosa.
L.A.-based nail artist Amy Le pairs four simplistic designs together — and inspires us to reimagine the cow-print trend.
For tons of asymmetric nail art inspiration, follow Barcelona-based nail artist Violetta. She loves mixing prints — we're partial to this tie-dye/yin-yang combo.
Celebrity nail artist Imarni of Imarninails recently posted this shot of her mixed-design manicure featuring emblems, flags, and emojis.
