30 Burgundy Nails
Nails guides for Spring are often full to the brim with pastel nail colours for us to try. However, not all of us are fans of lighter colour on our nails. With that in mind, here is a great selection of 30 nail looks for this season that all incorporate a gorgeous, dark, burgundy colour. Some have an injection of pastels colours more traditional to this time of year, some are dark and sumptuous. Whichever you choose, these nail looks are sure to enhance any spring ensemble you’ve got going on!
1Burgundy and Nude Coloured Florals
Don’t fancy an entirely dark colour? No problem! Try this mix of nude and burgundy shades, then use those two colours to decorate a couple of your nails with a floral pattern on a white base for a light spring look.
2Embellished Matte Burgundy and Black Nails
This is a wonderful look for an evening event where your outfit is particularly dramatic. We love how the embellishments have been used to slightly lift the matte finish on these burgundy and black nails.
3Extra Long Patent Burgundy Nails
These nails scream confidence, great for the days when you’re feeling particularly fierce and can wear these extra long shiny nails with pride! Wearing just one piece of jewellery is great with this look at is mimics the radiance of the polish but doesn’t take away from the look at all.
4Natural Burgundy Nails with Gold Transfer Design
For a more natural look, try painting your own nails instead of getting false ones and adding in a pretty detail like these lovely gold foils. They’re super easy to apply and give you a bit of sparkle without having to fiddle about with glue and rhinestones.
5Stiletto Nails with Heavy Embellishment
Blake Lively recently rocked a nail look very similar to this one and we all adored it. We are sure she had professionals work on hers for hours on end, but why not be bold and try it yourself! Yes, it’s a daring look but one that’ll give you great confidence and be a lot of fun to get creative with!
6Burgundy Nails Featuring the Base Coat
This is a very clever way of decorating your nails, especially if you have a very limited supply of colour options. Instead of making additions on top of your burgundy colour, leave a specific part of your clear base coat on show for an interesting, less ornate finish. It’s a look that’s beautiful yet casual enough to wear for everyday.
7Burgundy Glitter on Your Ring Finger Nail
This is a wonderful idea for a winter bride. The burgundy colour is great for the colder season and the glitter on your ring finger is a lovely way to highlight your new married status.
8Pink Glittery Ring Finger Nail
You don’t just have to stick with burgundy for this idea, paint the nail on your ring finger based on the colour scheme used in your wedding design.
9Burgundy Nails with a Glittery Base Coat
Use a clear base coat infused with glitter to create this subtle sparkle on your beautiful burgundy nails. The first step will only take you a few minutes but it makes a huge difference to the overall result of your manicure.
10Burgundy Nails with a Purple Hue
This deep burgundy polish has a lovely purple glow that we love for matching with floral prints in our spring dresses. We love this colour to be worn with similar purple shades or emerald greens to enhance the purple even further.
11Burgundy Spring Nails
We are totally in love with these gorgeous floral embellishments. It’s like having mini spring sculptures on your fingernails! It’s a good idea to stick to just a couple of these embellishments and let them stand out as they are rather than putting them on every nail where they may loose their wow factor.
12Decorative White and Burgundy Nails
These decorative nails with the bright white colour against the deep burgundy are a great option for a day time event such as a garden party or birthday lunch! Even for wedding whether you’re attending as a guest or as the bride.
13Burgundy Nails with a Gold Stripe
We really appreciate the very subtle decoration on these nails, the single gold stripe is striking yet very sophisticated. An easy look to create, this is another option that you could happily wear to the office and on the weekends.
14Burgundy Love Nails
Whether it’s valentines day, your wedding day, an anniversary or you’re just feeling particularly smitten! Try these totally adorable heart nails for yourself and fall instantly in love!
15Burgundy Nails with Bow Detail
We’re not sure we could find a more beautiful and feminine way to decorate your nails than with a bow! We love how this look combines pastel pink and burgundy together and even has one nail with both colours, separated by a vertical line of diamontes.
16Dark Burgundy Nails with a Black Rose Detail
For those that love florals but aren’t so fond of spring pastels, why not try something like this? You have all the beauty of a beautiful bloom but in a colour that you can base your outfit around not compromising your personal style.
17Pink and Burgundy Embellished Nails
If you’d like embellished nails but are worried about going overboard, try painting your nails in alternate dark and light colours and then adding some details to just a select few. It’ll really stand out but ensure your look remains more on the subtle side.
18Matte Burgundy Nails with Gold Jewellery
If you’re going for just one colour on your nails in a matte polish, use some elegant gold jewellery to lift the overall finish of your nail look. This is great for weddings, big birthday celebrations or if, you know, you just want to feel super fancy at the supermarket!
19Sparkly Stiletto Nails
A look for when you really want to go all out, these nails have it all. They’re sharp and fierce with a sparkles and embellishments that really shine! Wear this daring look with a plain outfit to let them be the focal point of your ensemble.
20High Shine Burgundy Nails with Silver Diamontes
The crystal additions to the base of these high shine nails really works well to highlight the reflective nature of the polish. The long length here also creates a beautiful vertical glow all the way along the nail.
21Burgundy and Pink Decorated Nails
A dark lace effect on lighter pink nails, alongside burgundy glitter polish and dark rhinestones sounds like a recipe for disaster but this look absolutely works and even though it incorporates a lot of varying styles, the end result is a stunning one.
22Burgundy Glitter Polish
A quick and easy look for those with a limited amount of manicure time is a simple coat of glittery burgundy polish. It’s still a bold colour choice all on it’s own so even without any extra embellishments your nails will look gorgeous.
23Burgundy Nails with Gold Floral Detail
We adore this look for a winter wedding guest. The delicate gold flowers look beautifully ornate and the burgundy under coat really amps up the glam factor! You could even select this as your nail colour and use it as inspiration to find your outfit.
24Burgundy Polish with Silver Sparkles
We know it’s only May right now, but this look is giving us a seven month advance on our Christmas vibes! The high shine on these nails is stunning and we love the addition of the silver in place of gold that we often see used with burgundy nails. The silver is just as eye catching but gives the finished look an arguably more polished finish.
25Burgundy and Glitter Polishes with Animal Print
Unleash your wild side and try adding in an accent nail with a bold animal print that includes, and therefore highlights, the colours on your other nails.
26Burgundy Nails with Subtle Gold Detail
The glittery gold V stripe on these nails is a lovely way to add in some glamour to your nail look in a fun but relatively subtle way. Mix it up and try it with a zigzag, a wavy line or even some polka dots, just make sure to keep the lines relatively thin to keep this look delicate.
27Black and Burgundy Matte Nails
Use matte polishes to create this look and make one of your nails an accent nail using both polishes and tape to create vertical stripes. It’s a really cute idea and we love it for the office!
28Burgundy Nails with a Black Lace Effect
For the drama queen in you, try these extremely deep burgundy nails with the amazing effect of black lace on the accent nail. These particular nails are a rather racy choice and will look great with a LBD and heels!
29Gold Mosaic Effect on Burgundy Polish
We really love this idea of having the accent nail on each hand be so dramatically different from one another. The gold mosaic style lines on one and the black rhinestones covering the other juxtapose one another beautifully as they are both offset by the burgundy. This is another look that you could play about with and find various ways to create different accent nails that effectively compliment your burgundy polish.
