Last on our list is this light pink and cow print nail design that is so stunning. The light shade of pink makes this manicure easy to pair with different styles, and the playful cow print accents add a youthful feel. We also love the gold glitter accent that keeps this manicure looking chic. 

Does cow print go with everything?

Cow print is a design that does pair well with many styles. Because cow print is typically black or brown with white, it is a neutral design that will complement any look.

Alternatively, cow print can come in bolder colors like pink, blue, and green which makes it harder to match with other items. So, the best option is to stick with a neutral cow print. 

This trendy design can look subtle, classy, vibrant, or playful, depending on the colors and unique designs used. No matter what look you’re going for these ideas provide the perfect inspo for a cow print manicure that will suit your style. 

Why You Need To Try This Trend

Cow print nails are so stylish and versatile. This trendy design can be paired with any color and can be done in so many different ways, making it the perfect choice to match any season, outfit, or look.

This popular design will truly take any look to the next level!
