These pineapple nails scream summer. (They really want ice cream.)
The pineapple nail designs are also perfect for completing that “look at me casually lounging on an oversized inflatable unicorn raft while sipping a pina colada under the palm trees.” Not that we’ve visualized this tropical vacation scene twenty times or anything.
While most of these do incorporate yellow nail polish, you can swap it out for any bright summery color. Or, do like Miller’s Manicures and use red and blue to give your claws a truly 3D nail art look.
If you’re like, wait, how do I do paint a pineapple on my nails, Janelle Estep shows you how.
27 Tropical Pineapple Nails That’ll Give You Serious Vacation Vibes
1. Florida-Inspired Nails
If you like a challenge, you’ll love painting tiny flamingos and pineapples with your bad hand! (Also, we accept zero responsibility if you get lots of awkward compliments from the neighbors.)
2. Gold Foiled Pineapple Nails
A true soulmate will understand that we’d rather have gold-foil nail designs instead of fine jewelry.
3. Bedazzled Pineapple Nail Art
Still bitter that you never got a BeDazzler for your 13th birthday instead of a pony? Adding a rhinestone pineapple to your nail design will help make up for it, and it’s way cheaper than therapy.
4. Pastel Pineapples
This beige and turquoise take on pineapple nails is super creative and we are here for it.
5. Watercolor Pineapple Nails
We were feeling pretty good about painting our pride stripes without smudging them — then we saw this next-level watercolor design, which is just straight-up sorcery. If your most artistic friend owes you a favor, now’s the time to call it in.
6. Almond Pineapple Nails
These almond shaped nails are one part snack and five parts yellow.
7. Pineapple + Friends Nails
These “fruiticles” are perfection.
8. Classy Pineapple Nails
A sparkly pineapple (and a few random rhinestones) will keep white nail polish from looking too vanilla. Accessorizing with every gold ring in your jewelry box is optional.

These nails look like they just walked out from under the misters in the produce aisle — so fresh and so clean clean.
10. Neon Summer Pineapple Nails
Paint these cheerful pineapple doodles on your nails the next time you’re stuck in a boring Zoom meeting that could’ve been an email.
11. Fineapple Nails
What’s cooler than pineapple nails? Pineapples wearing sunglasses.

If all you wear is J.Crew, consider stepping out of your preppy box with this metal-studded pineapple design. Don’t worry. It’s totally not the gateway to being front row at a GWAR show.
13. Rose Gold Pineapples
We’ll stop loving pineapples when we stop loving rose gold. In other words, never. Double down on both with these pineapple nails made with rose gold foil.

Subtle? Geometric? Abstract? When you have 10 nails, you don’t need to choose — just paint a different style of pineapple on every nail and call it a day!
15. 3D Pineapple Nails
See, this is why you keep those 3D glasses from the movie theater! It definitely wasn’t because we watch Glee: The 3D Concert Movie on an endless loop.

Neon is in, and we’re loving the multicolored dot design on these DayGlo nails.

This dotted design requires a decent amount of patience, but minimal skill. Like your ex.
18. So Extra Pineapple Nails
If you really, really, really enjoy applying itty-bitty gemstones to your nails with tweezers, ooh boy, are you going to love this sparkly design. Guess you’ll just have to dictate everything to Jeeves for the week so you don’t have to type. If you ask nicely, he might do your workout too.
19. Red Hot Pineapple Nails
We’re getting some Christmas in Hawaii vibes from the red, gold, and green color scheme on these pineapple nails. Perfect for celebrating Christmas in July, or whatever month we’re doing now. Hot March? Apriltober? Maybe we shouldn’t have burned our day planner.

Which of these adorable pineapple emojis describes how you’re feeling today? We’re gonna go with “blissed out orange pinky.”
27. Baby Pink Stripe Nails
Sunny yellow is one of the hot summer nail polish colors, so you can be a trendsetter. Even if no one realizes it because they can’t get within six feet of you.
