That said, there’s more to burgundy nails than meets the eye – there are actually 37 more things than meets the eye. So, here is a list of our favorite burgundy nails and all the fun and cool manicures you can do with the shade!

    Geometric Burgundy Nail Design

    There’s something so satisfying about geometric shapes and lines. Maybe it’s the curvature or the color blocking; we’re not sure, but either way, we love it! We love it so much that we wanted to share these geometric burgundy nail designs with you.

    There’s so much room for opportunity when it comes to geometric designs because of all the different shapes you can try to incorporate into your manicure, such as:

    6. Hexagons: Unique and eye-catching, hexagons offer a modern twist on traditional geometric shapes.

    Matte Burgundy Nails

    One of our favorite shades to mattify has to be burgundy, and we think these matte burgundy nails do all the explaining necessary. Toss on some gemstones or do an accent nail with a funky design to complement the matte.

    Burgundy French Tip Nails

    If you’re a fan of timeless classics with a modern twist, then burgundy French tip nails are a must-try. This elegant design combines the traditional French manicure’s beauty with the burgundy’s richness. Opt for a soft and subtle look using a sheer nude base and a burgundy tip, or go bold with a clear base and a deep, intense burgundy tip.

    Dark Burgundy Nails

    Dare to go dark with deep, rich burgundy nails. This captivating shade adds depth and drama to your nails, making them a statement piece of their own. The dark burgundy nail trend is perfect for the colder months or when you’re in the mood for a sultry vibe.

    Zohna Tip

    If you add any kind of nail extension to your nails, make sure to give them a break in between manicures. This will ensure your natural nails don't get too weak from the extensions.

    Ombre Blend the two colors together in a gradient effect, either horizontally or vertically.
    Accent Nail Paint most of your nails one color and choose one nail on each hand to feature the second color as an accent.

    Burgundy And Gold Nail Designs

    If you are in the mood to feel bougie and glamorous, these burgundy and gold nail designs are for sure exactly what you need. The combination of these luxurious colors creates a stunning and opulent look. You could also try going for rose gold nails if you wanted to do something slightly more unique.

    There are a handful of ways you can incorporate gold into your manicure, such as:

    • Gold Foil
    • Loose Gold Glitter
    • Gold Studs or Charms
    • Gold Leaf
    • Gold Chrome
    • Gold Polish

    Burgundy Nails With Silver

    If you crave a metallic touch, burgundy nails with silver accents are here to help with that. Silver’s cool tone beautifully complements burgundy’s warmth, creating a balanced look. Amp up the glam factor for a night out, or keep it subtle and chic for everyday wear.

    Burgundy Gel Nails

    Everyone loves a long-lasting and glossy manicure. But that’s hard to achieve with regular polish, so that’s where gel nails come in. These burgundy gel nails will feel like a dream come true, not just because of the color. Gel polish offers a durable and chip-resistant finish that can last for weeks. With the wide range of burgundy shades available in gel form, you can achieve a flawless look that will make your nails the envy of all.

    Short Burgundy Nails

    Short and burgundy nails go hand in hand. A plain and simple burgundy nail on a short, clean-looking claw is a beautiful way to have your nails look and feel their best. There’s no risk of snaggy something on your long claws or poking your eye out by accent.

    Burgundy Christmas Nails

    Spread some holiday cheer with festive burgundy Christmas nails. This merry manicure combines the richness of burgundy with the magic of Christmas-themed designs. Think snowflakes, ornaments, holly, and candy cane stripes. In case you’re wondering, our favorite paring is burgundy, gemstones, and snowflake designs.

    Burgundy Red Nails

    If you want a burgundy shade that’s a bit on the lighter side, these burgundy red nails will be calling your name. There’s nothing wrong with keeping things light from time to time. We suggest choosing a classic glossy finish for a traditional look. Burgundy red nails are a great choice as they complement various skin tones.

    Burgundy Nails With Rhinestones

    Combining the deep, sultry burgundy shade and the shimmering rhinestones creates an unreal look ideal for special occasions. From delicate accents to full-glam designs, the choice is yours.

    There are a few different rhinestone shapes you can choose from, such as:

    1. Round: Classic round rhinestones are perfect for creating simple or intricate designs.
    2. Square: Square rhinestones offer a modern, geometric aesthetic ideal for contemporary nail art.
    3. Oval: Oval rhinestones provide a softer, more elongated look, which is suitable for creating elegant designs.
    4. Teardrop: Teardrop-shaped rhinestones resemble droplets of water or petals.
    5. Diamond: Diamond-shaped rhinestones provide a luxe look, perfect for adding sparkle and shine to special occasions.

    Burgundy Wedding Nails

    For brides-to-be, burgundy wedding nails are an elegant and excellent choice. This rich and romantic shade adds a touch of glamour to your overall bridal look. We suggest adding some rhinestones (because why not glitter and shine) and some lace pattern detailing to match the wedding vibes.

    Burgundy And White Nails

    For a fresh look, try out the combination of burgundy and white. This clean and contemporary design allows you to create various intriguing patterns. However, our favorite way to pair these two colors is in the French tip style.

    Burgundy And Pink Nails

    If you’re a fan of romantic nail designs, there’s a high chance you’ll fall head over heels for these burgundy and pink nails. This soft and delicate combination maintains a bold and captivating look. If it were us, we’d keep it simple with the burgundy and let loose with the pink. You could go for a marbling with the pink, or maybe try a pink chrome.

    Cute Burgundy Nails

    Nothing is cuter than bows. That said, cute burgundy nails, in our opinion, should be burgundy nails with cute little white bows. But if you wanted, you could go for adorable flowers, animal motifs, or fun patterns. Nail stickers are also a great way to instantly cute-ify any manicure.

    Burgundy Nails With Gold Glitter

    If you want to incorporate some gold pizzazz into your claws in a quick and easy way, gold glitter polish is the perfect way. Just add a simple swipe over your burgundy nails, and you’ll be rocking the burgundy nails with gold glitter. You could even go for an ombre effect with the glitter, concentrating it closer to the nail bed and thinning it out towards the tip.

    Zohna Tip

    Glitter polish can be super stubborn to remove. But, using a 100% pure acetone nail polish remover will have it gone in a second.

    Deep Burgundy Nails

    For some of us, the darker, the better. You’ll be giddy for these deep burgundy nails if that’s the case for you. Their darkness keeps them a bit more professional looking and less bright, vibrant, and in your face. If you are someone who likes neutral and more natural-looking nail polish colors, this is the manicure for you.

    Light Burgundy Nails

    If you were just looking at the deep burgundy nails above and thought, “Not for me,” there’s no need to stress cause we have the perfect alternative, aka light burgundy nails. This delicate and gentle shade offers a polished and refined look that is perfect for everyday wear and for those who like to have a little color in their manicure.

    Chrome and burgundy go hand in hand. This bold and striking design features a metallic, mirror-like finish that will leave you feeling like a star. We suggest either going for a white chrome to create a bit of a lighter appearance or a red chrome to keep the burgundy and red tones alive!

    Burgundy Acrylic Nails Designs

    If you are getting acrylics, you might as well go all in. These burgundy acrylic nail designs scream, “put me on acrylics!”, but if you got it, flaunt it! The best thing about acrylics is the added length, aka the added surface area to play around with fun designs and styles.

    Burgundy Nails With Diamonds

    From delicate diamond accents to fully embellished designs, a diamond manicure suits every style. So go ahead and add some diamonds to your burgundy nails. You’ve got nothing to lose other than glamour and a great-looking manicure.

    Nude And Burgundy Nails

    When we think of pairing another nail shade with burgundy, our automatic thought wouldn’t be nude. However, we think we stand corrected with these nude and burgundy nails because, wow, do they ever look good! The nude keeps the nails looking classy and clean, and the burgundy adds a little something special to the look.

    Zohna Tip

    If you plan on using regular nail polish, we suggest you use white polish underneath to help make the colored one pop even more.

    Burgundy Coffin Nail Designs

    Coffin nails are a trendy and edgy nail shape that adds a dose of attitude to any manicure. When paired with a burgundy color, the result is a fierce look. Since the nail shape is so bold, we suggest you keep things simple and go for a glossy burgundy polish. However, if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, you can always play around with designs.

    Burgundy Oval Nails

    The oval nail shape is one of our favorites. Why, you ask? Well, it’s elegant looking, soft, feminine, elongates the fingers, and pairs well with every nail design. That said, oval nails and burgundy are the perfect pairing, as they are both soft and feminine in appearance.

    Long Burgundy Nails

    For those who love extra-long nails, long burgundy nails are here to serve you. Long nails provide a canvas for creativity and allow for intricate designs to shine.

    If you are reading this and thinking oh crap, I don’t have long nails, but now I want them, there’s no need to feel left out. You actually have a handful of options to help you achieve these long burgundy nails. We outline all the details in the chart below!

Grey provides a perfect neutral base to complement the richness of burgundy. Plus, it’s a very muted shade, so if you add any designs, it won’t overpower them; it will complement them.

    Burgundy Sunflower Nails

    If you are a flower lover, then these burgundy sunflower nails will be just what you need. Before we saw these nails, we would never have thought to pair burgundy with yellow, but for this manicure, we think it’s working! Sunflowers symbolize happiness and optimism, making them the perfect choice to brighten your manicure.

    Burgundy And Orange Nails

    We suggest incorporating some orange if you’re craving some warmth in your manicure but still want to go for a burgundy manicure. Orange and burgundy seem like an unlikely pair; however, They actually look really beautiful together. We bet burnt orange nails and burgundy also pair perfectly together if vibrant orange isn’t your thing. You can add gems and glitter to vamp up your manicure.

    Burgundy And Green Nails

    If you love the holiday season but don’t love the crazy holiday manicures, these burgundy and green nails are a great lowkey holiday manicure. The holly design adds something special to your manicure without going over the top with snowflakes, snowmen, and whatever else people add to their holiday.

    Simple Burgundy Nails

    Sometimes less is more, and if you are on the hunt for a minimalist and chic manicure, simple burgundy nails are the way to go. A solid burgundy color on your nails can speak volumes on its own. You can even pair the simple burgundy shade with a less simple nail shape like these stiletto nails if you want to add something more interesting to the eye without incorporating any designs into your manicure.

    Burgundy Purple Nails

    Since burgundy is kind of a red-purple, you could probably guess that burgundy purple nails would be a show-stopper. Combining the richness of burgundy with the regal hue of purple creates a luxurious look, especially in this cool cat eye design.

    Burgundy And Yellow Nails

    Looking for a bold and cheerful color combination? The combination of deep burgundy with vibrant yellow creates an interesting contrast. You could incorporate the two shades in many ways, but adding yellow designs is by far our favorite.

    Burgundy Swirl Nails

    If you want to incorporate some playfulness into your burgundy nails, swirl designs might be just what you are searching for. Swirl nails feature intricate patterns that create a unique and eye-catching manicure. You can easily do this at home with a small nail art brush, no questions asked.

    Burgundy And Blue Nails

    Looking for a cool and captivating color combination? Look no further than burgundy and blue nails. The combination of warm burgundy with cool blue creates a striking and harmonious contrast. We appreciate how this person incorporated the burgundy, blue, and gold polishes together – unique looking.

    Classy Burgundy Nails

    Nothing says class more than a simple and highly glossy manicure. A simple and solid burgundy manicure can be worn for any occasion. Plus, the shade looks great with any nail shape, so you have a whole range of shapes to choose from.

    Burgundy Ombre Nails

    Ombre nails have been a popular trend for quite some time, and burgundy ombre nails are no exception. This gradient effect from light to dark burgundy creates a visually appealing manicure. You can leave them as is or add some gemstones or chrome pigment to give it a little more oomph.
