5 ‘90s-Inspired Nail Art Stickers For Your Next Mani
Our favorite 90s manis and movies
Have you heard? The ‘90s are back in full force, complete with crop tops, scrunchies, and slouchy denim. But the ‘90s resurgence isn’t just happening in our wardrobes — it’s also happening on our nails! If you’re bored with your current mani, these ‘90s-inspired nail art designs are going to give you a much needed burst of visual inspiration. Hey, we love a good neutral as much as anyone, but a bright throwback to one of our favorite decades is fun to play with, too.
Ahead, check out five nail designs that pay tribute to the ‘90s, expertly paired (and by experts, we mean our ‘90s-obsessed ManiMe team) with a movie from the era that we could watch over and over again. Manis + movies = pretty much our ideal night in. All that’s missing? Popcorn and your candy of choice, duh!
Freezer Pops + Matilda
These tangy, refreshing color combos have us reminiscing about running through sprinklers, chasing the ice cream truck up and down the street, and watching Matilda so many times that the VHS tape started to fall apart. Oh, those were the days. Why not recapture some of that magic with a rewatch of this beloved movie?
Stay Fly + Never Been Kissed
Josie Geller (played by Drew Barrymore) never stood out from the crowd when she was a teen, so she goes back to high school to get a redo. Hijinks ensue in this hilarious rom-com, and Josie eventually finds her way and taps into her inner confidence. We like to think she’d be a fan of this unapologetically bold blue and white design.
All That and More + Clueless
Back in the ‘90s, collecting stickers on your school notebooks was a very big deal. Now, with this fun and quirky mix of patterns and prints, that old-school vibe can also be applied right onto your nails! We have a feeling Cher Horowitz would totally approve. Now, if only we could figure out how to get her rotating closet…
Take A Chill Pill + Austin Powers
Oh, behave! This groovy combo of turquoise and lavender is delivering all the coolness and swag of Austin Powers himself. While you may not be an international spy from the ‘60s, you can still channel that retro energy with this era-appropriate mani.
Kaleidoscope + Men In Black
Looking for a true showstopper? If you’ve seen Men In Black, you know there’s no escaping the neuralyzer, the little device that makes a bright flash and erases people’s memories. This glittering mani won’t exactly do that, but it will catch light from every direction — it’ll be practically impossible to look away.
