Beyond Basic Blue: 21 Baby Blue Nail Designs for Every Look

The pastel polishes are everywhere in summer. But few nail colors can last through the seasons like a baby-blue manicure.

There’s a baby blue nail design that’s perfect for you, whether it’s a veil of iridescent blue or a more minimalistic look. We’ve gathered a variety of baby blue nail art designs that will give new meaning to those Monday blues.
