Love it or hate it, the Barbiecore aesthetic is everywhere. From Barbiecore makeup to strutting in pink pumps, we’ve embraced the hue with all the buzz surrounding the highly-anticipated movie release, especially in the nail department. The latest trend to hit our fingertips is Barbie pink nail polish, and many of the the best pink polishes are up to 30 percent off for Amazon Prime Day 2023.
Everyone is thinking pink these days. On TikTok alone, searches for “Barbie pink nail color” have 294 million views (and counting). Plus, in the past 30 days, according to Google Trends, searches for “Barbie nail polish” and “Barbie pink nail polish” have surged 350 percent.
While the pink nail polish is receiving significant attention, thanks to Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie and Margot Robbie’s movie press tour looks, it comes as no surprise that pink nails are easily winning the popularity vote. Pink is impressively versatile for different occasions, seasons, and outfits. Even influencers, editors, and celebrities like Hailey Bieber, Zendaya, and Kim Kardashian are leaning into the pink manicure trend.
However, if you’re wearing a pastel pink blouse or dress, celebrity manicurist and author of the “Nail Art Design Book” Julie Kandalec, recommends choosing a nail polish color that is one shade deeper than that of your garment. This ensures your look stays within the same color family, but offers “more depth to your outfit,” Kandalec notes.
When it comes to selecting the best pink nail polishes to nail your Barbiecore look, you should consider opting for a trusted brand like OPI, which has many pink polishes as part of Amazon’s Prime Day beauty deals. Since 1981, OPI has been making Barbie-inspired pink polishes with long-lasting coverage and a glossy, pro-finish, so it’s clear why the search for “OPI Barbie nail polish” on TikTok has amassed over 31 million views while also being a breakout term in the past 30 days, according to Google Trends.
