There have been milky nails, jelly nails and cotton candy chrome nails, but what about a nail trend for the over-21 crowd? Go ahead and match your mani to blueberry milk or lattes all you want—we’re looking to coordinate our nails with our favorite cocktails. You can really hit the nail on the head with an obvious impression or give your go-to drink more of a subtle nod. These are some of the cocktail nail designs we have on our wishlist.

Cocktail Nail Inspo

Tequila and Lime Nails

The intricate designs on these nails are captivating. We’re first drawn into the white and blue pattern often seen on traditional tequila bottles, and then we’re struck by the texture and details behind the limes. Altogether it’s a manicure that begs you order another round.

Espresso Martini Nails

It’s the summer of espresso, Sabrina Carpenter made sure of it. If you’re looking for that personalized “me espresso,” try a style like this that features a rich brown polish, as well as more milky shades for those who like a foamier espresso martini.

Limoncello Nails

The Italian lemon liqueur is understated and chill, and it meets its match with this mani. The French tips are similar to trending butter yellow shades, but the sparkles add a flair that suggests someone poured some bubbly in your limoncello.
