One of the reasons I love the color brown is because it’s so chic, and it’s the same reason I love almond nails. Their tapered design makes them perfect, classy, and super cute, whether short or long.
The almond nail shape is one of the most popular, and since brown manicures are rising in popularity as well, it’s the perfect opportunity to rock both together. That’s what this compilation is all about; the top trending brown almond nail designs for this year.
You may be wondering what styles you can create, relying on the color brown, but there are so many ideas out there. I’ll be covering designs with animal print, ombre blends, cute abstract patterns, and more.

13. Brown and Nude Marble Almond Nails
Marble nails are among my favorite looks, and this brown and nude mix makes the design so flattering. The glossy finish also adds a dreamy effect that I love.

I love when the emphasis is placed on the smile line of a french tip design. For this look, brown tips are enhanced by thick white lines. It’s an easy way to play up a classic look.
15. Brown Gradient French Almond Nails
If classic french tips aren’t the vibe you’re going for, switch things up with an angled french nail design. Coat each nail in a different shade of brown to make things interesting, with thin swirls to add a girly flair.

You can also dress up your nails with a cute marble design like the one seen here. It’s an ombre blend featuring a sheer nude base and a combination of brown and white at the tips. Very simple yet very stylish.
17. Brown Almond Nails With Gold Glitter
Brown nails look amazing by themselves, but they are even more captivating paired with gold glitter. Instead of sprinkling the glitter on the brown base, dedicate two nails to the sparkling design for the most impact.
