It’s safe to say aura nails have become one of the most popular manicure trends over the last year; they’re always all over our feed. Inspired by energy-detecting aura photography, this buzzy nail look features hazy orbs of color in the center of the nail. While some aura manis feature different mood-inspired colors on each nail, others focus on anchoring the ethereal nail look with one main hue. And lately, we’ve been seeing a lot of stunning examples that fall into the latter category. In particular, we’ve spotted tons of pink aura manicures that have made us do a double take. We’ve rounded up 18 of our favorites below.

Here’s further proof that chrome details pair incredibly well with pink aura nails. This manicure also shows that the aura accent doesn’t have to be centered in the middle of the nail to turn heads. Applying it to the tips makes just as much of an impact.
