5 Ways To Nail The Barbiecore Aesthetic

5 Ways To Nail The Barbiecore Aesthetic



Barbiecore is the trend taking Instagram by storm. Inspired by the upcoming Barbie film slated for 2023, this is every pink lover's dream come true. We can't think about Barbie without thinking of pink. The color has become extremely synonymous with the brand. However, even though this trend is blowing up now, it actually started back in 2002 with the Valentino Fall runway show. Since 2002, celebrities have also become synonymous with the Barbie brand, including rapper Nicki Minaj, who's even called her fans "Barbz." 

So what makes Barbiecore so trendy? While it may be a statement on feminism, the trend is also in line with Mattel's mission, which is to break down stereotypes. According to People Magazine, since 2020, the Barbie Fashionistas line features 176 dolls, both male and female, with nine different body types, 35 skin tones, and 94 hairstyles. In 2022, the brand expanded their inclusivity with dolls that featured hearing aids, prosthetic legs and a Ken doll with vitiligo. 

Selena Gomez's latest manicure is serving major Barbiecore vibes. Celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik posted this photo on Instagram. 



Unfortunately, this exact color that Selena is wearing is made by a Korean brand that's difficult to get in the United States. However, if you are looking for a similar shade, don't worry! There are plenty of dupes that are just as comparable (and without breaking the bank!).

Other celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Sydney Sweeney have also been spotted with gorgeous pink manicures. Check out their photos below!

Celebrity nail artist Zola Ganzorigt (also known for the glazed donut nail trend) recently did Sydney Sweeney's nails for the MTV Awards. Zola used OPI's Pink Big from the Power Of Hue Collection and topped it with the OPI Chrome Effects in Mixed Metals to create a shiny effect.



We are obsessed with Tracey's pretty pink skittles mani using colors from the Zoya Pink Palette Collection. If there's any brand that has this trend down, it's Zoya. She even created some accent nails with the iridescent glitter topper polish that's also included in the collection.



Daisy used Essie Expressie Crave The Chaos for her manicure. She says, "It's one of those hot pink shades I love. The Expressie formula is one of my favorites and the brush is amazing." 


Michele nailed the Barbiecore trend by not only playing with colors, but patterns as well. She uses a shimmery silver color to create a gorgeous accent nail and we think Barbie would definitely approve of the cheetah print.



Erika's wearing OPI Strawberry Margarita, a classic! She says, "Strawberry Margarita is the perfect name for her as she is just as juicy and fun as the drink itself! Definitely one classy hot pink polish with just the slightest hint of red in her." Hot pink is the Barbie signature so we expect to see a lot of this color in the coming months. 


For those who prefer a softer Barbiecore look, this color is perfect. Ana wears Morgan Taylor's "Adorably Clueless" from the Clueless Collection. It's a pretty princess pink creme that looks stunning any time of the year. She even took it up a notch by applying a layer of "Highly Selective", a shimmery pink topper from the same collection, to give her manicure the perfect glow.
