With pastels as you've never seen them before and all-out Barbiecore tones set to take centre stage this month, take it from the feeds of some of our favourite nail artists like @Nail_of _LA and @ImariNails: If you are looking for new colour inspiration for you March manicure, there are plenty of sophisticated options to choose from.

The 5 Best Nail Colours For March 2023



From futuristic silver chromes—because yes, chrome is still reigning supreme—to vibrant orange hues, there's a colour for every style, event and mood here.

Scroll on to discover the five nail colours you're bound to see everywhere this month as well as the products you might need to help get the look at home.

1. Silver Chrome 

The futuristic hue is the perfect way to add   a bit of extra "shine with edge" to your daily life. Plus, chrome powder is the secret ingredient behind the shimmering manicure, so if you're not quite ready to kiss the cooler colours goodbye, silver chrome nails are sure to become your March manicure staple. 

Take it from Olivia Rodrigo: Silver chrome is still "that girl."

Chrome at home can feel like a daunting feat. This shiny, chrome-effect nail polish from OPI is sure to change that.

If you're feeling adventurous, why not try using chrome powder at home? Just make sure to have a little time and a great clear gel base. And be ready to unlock a whole new level of nail fun.

2. Off-White 

Love a nude manicure but want to take it to the next level? Then an off-white lacquer just might become your new favourite. The more minimal cousin to lip-gloss or glazed-donut nails, this new online nude nail trend is sure to take over your IG and TikTok feeds. Watch this space.

Bright-white nail can stain and fade over time, but this über-chic evolution of the colour along with its signature mirror-shine topcoat is a tonal dream.

In order to get your off-white manicure to really pop this March, you are going to need a super-shiny top coat. This is my current go-to.

The words "classic" and "timeless" are often overused when it comes to neutrals, but when it comes to an off-white polish, there really isn't a better descriptor. Minimalists, this one is for you.

3. Hues of Orange 

Neons in spring? You bet. I didn't think I'd ever see the day, but this joyous orange hue has become my most saved inspiration photo on both Instagram and TikTok.  

Maybe it's because of the colour's mood-boosting, zesty vibrance, or perhaps it's a sign of deep summer longing. Either way, while I've been an advocate for darker shades right through to April in the past, right now, orange truly is the new black. 

Orange nails of any kind are the perfect way to inject some springtime optimism into into your manicure. And rest assured you don't have to go neon bright with your orange polish—a pastel tone can induce just as much happiness.

Tangerine-hued lacquer to offset my pre-spring trench? Yes, please. 

Want to feel like you've brought the salon to you? Investing in luxury nail polishes is a great way to add a little va-va-voom to a living room nail bar. Case in point: this vibrant orange colour (apty named Spontaneous) from Nailberry.

4. Pearlescent Pastels

A pastel, pearly manicure is an overarching colour trend that is long overdue its moment in the sun. Choose a pink or lilac tone, and give it a mermaid-style shimmer on top.

A rose pink to make whoever wink is a surefire way to put your stamp on this March nail-colour trend.

If you're in need of a fresh, new pastel to rid you of 2011 mint-green nightmares, let this lavender shade from Nails Inc. be the thing to sooth your mind. 

5. Barbiecore Pink

Yes, we all saw it coming, but thanks to inspiration from the much-anticipated Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig spectacular, Barbiecore is here to stay. There's something quite healing about beauty's return to such a bold colour, and we are all here for it!

Whether you wear this new March favourite as a short-filed manicure or as long acrylics with a glossy finish, it's sure to impress.

When opting for such a vivid colour, prioritising good nail prep to prevent staining is a must. Layer up on this, and thank me later. 

Pink is an intense colour, so when going in with layers, opting for a plant-powered, nail-healthy option is always key. 

The best manicures are rooted in both nail and hand care. Scroll on for the products to add to your nail kit to help you get the most out of your mani.

1. Manisafe The Big Smoke Gel Manicure Gloves

With at-home gel options on the rise, it's important to prioritise protecting your hands from long-term UV exposure. These hand gloves are perfect for a trip to a salon but are also a must for any seasoned home manicurists.

2. Opi Nail Polish Remover Pen 

Sadly, being ambidextrous hasn't saved me completely from polishing outside of my nail-bed line, so I am thankful for this handy pen's ability to wipe away finicky mistakes. (And so is everyone I've gifted with this polish-remover pen.)

3.Koba Skincare Hand Cream

Cracked and sore cuticles are sometimes an unavoidable nail woe, but dry hands are enough to send anyone into a nail-care slump. Luckily, Koba's deeply nourishing safou oil (a source of antioxidants such as vitamins E and C) always comes in clutch.
