Nail art industry has always been an important segment for Swarovski. If you’ve been into nail art, either as a nail designer or just a nail art lover who enjoys a nice manicure every now and then, you’re probably already familiar with Swarovski crystals used for nail art. Swarovski Flat Backs give you an elegant touch with unprecedented sparkle while CRYSTALPIXIE range will help you create spectacular, shimmering 3D-effects. As in every other area, Swarovski is also here setting the trends by bringing new products and colors to the market every year. If you want to stay ahead of trends and competition, step up your game by following 4 nail art trends that Swarovski has forecasted for spring 2019 and find inspiration in these sparkly nail art designs.
1. Iridescent Glitter
Grab a handful of sparkle and achieve that luxurious high end nail art look with 4 new Swarovski CRYSTALPIXIE™ Petite Shimmer colors. The iridescent shimmer finish is designed to radiate three shades of a single hue. Result? More dynamic light refractions and more vibrant color which will highlight every hand movement.
The four on-trend colors complement Swarovski’s existing nail art assortment beautifully and will transform any shade of nail lacquer. Each 5-gram shot of Crystalpixie Petite Shimmer will help you create endless eye-catching nail looks ideal for spring.
- Rosé Shimmer is the beautiful result of Shimmer effect applied to Light Rose. With its soft, powdery allure, it’s romantic, feminine and fascinating.
- Champagne Shimmer is a mix of Silk and Shimmer effect. It has a delicate sparkle and classic glamour, just like champagne in sunlight.
- Blue Lagoon Shimmer is a combination of Blue Zircon and Shimmer effect. Fresh and summery, it calls to mind sunlight glinting on water with a splash of sparkle.
- When Shimmer effect is applied to hot Fuchsia, the head-turning result is Aurora Shimmer. Wild, vivacious, and dazzlingly brilliant, it makes a wild and passionate statement.
You can also combine these with Flat Backs in new shimmer colors, Tanzanite shimmer and Light Rose Shimmer, as well as with any other standard colors.
2. 3-D Jewel Accents
If you want to make your nails stand out, you should try out 3-D nail art. Create eye-catching crystal clusters by using Swarovski Round Stones and Fancy Stones. Unlike the Flat Backs, which have a flat reverse side, these crystals have a pointed back and are not so commonly used for nail art. That is why they will make your nail design really special and unique.
Although Swarovski crystals come in hundreds of colors, for an on-trend spring look we recommend you to check out new Delite effect. These colors combine pastel hues with colorful reflection. Combine them with standard round crystals or spice things up with triangle, rectangular or heart-shaped Flat Backs.

3. Neon Explosion
If you have seen at least one fashion report from the latest fashion week season, then you know that the hottest trend right now is neon. Neon pieces kept popping up on the catwalks at the various fashion shows and celebrities like Kim Kardashian have fully embraced this trend. As always, Swarovski has forecasted this trend and released six new electrically vibrant neon colors. Although initially meant for dance industry, these bold bright colors will also make any nail art design stand out.
Neon nail art is perfect for spring and summer time because it will complement your summer tan and make it pop. Whether you keep it simple or choose the most difficult designs, neon is something that just can’t go unnoticed. The bonus side of these Swarovski Electric colors is that they glow under dark UV light. The ultimate choice for any party if you ask us!

4. Geometric Embellishments
This last trend is for those who want to elevate their nail art designs by using geometric Swarovski crystals instead of standard round ones. To achieve an edgy look you can experiment with an array of shapes that include triangles, rectangles, squares, diamond-, trapeze- and kite-shaped crystals .
Paired with a dark bold color or pastel pink, Swarovski geometric flat back crystals will take your nail art to a whole new level. Available in a multitude of sizes and colors these simple yet versatile cuts will make any nail art look trendy and sparkly at the same time.
