When it comes to custom android launchers, Nova Launcher is one of the best ones around. So it makes perfect sense that you would want the best nova launcher themes, setups and icon packs to fully customize the already beautiful looking launcher. Thankfully, there are multiple great Nova Launcher icon packs available that not only drastically change how the launcher looks but also allow you to set up a theme that suits your needs.
A point to be noted here is that when we say themes and setups, we generally mean I can packs that come with additional wallpapers and a specific color scheme. So basically you’ll be just installing and icon pack, setting up the wallpapers that came bundled with it and manually change the overall color scheme of Nova Launcher. It may seem like a long process, but it hardly takes around 2 minutes to do so. Personally, I’ve been using Nova Launcher Prime for over 4 years now and have used countless different icon packs.
Note: A big issue with using Nova Launcher themes and icon packs is that there is absolutely no way to cover all apps when it comes to designing custom icons. So only mainstream apps that are already established have custom icons available. If you’re using a relatively new app or an obscure one, chances are the icon pack may not support it. There are several workarounds you can use to eliminate those misplaced icons, however, this process can take a lot of time depending on how many app icons you need to replace.
Now that we have established what Nova Launcher themes, setups & icon packs represent, let’s start checking out the best Nova Launcher icon packs of 2018.

It simply lifts the TouchWiz UI icons that are available on the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphones and bring them to Nova Launcher. The rounded icons look good but they cannot be used in a color centric theme because they’re all of very different colors. So if you have a particular Nova Launcher theme in mind, this icon pack can be a little unrelenting in terms of different colors used. Apart from that, icons are beautifully designed and have a unique polish to them.

The Delta icon pack comes with more than 1400 different icons that are handcrafted. All of them look remarkable and the design is kept simplistic. The icons are a little bit smaller than other packages we have tested and if you are going for a simplistic and low-key look for your android home screen, then this icon pack is certainly a great one to choose. The flat design of the icons give them a polished look and a little bit of a retro flavor, however, they are all colored differently so using this icon pack with a certain color theme can be a little difficult.

Each icon is kept deliberately simple so it really easy to recognize your favorite apps without even showing their name. Each icon comes with its own custom shape so all of them look different from each other. There is dynamic calendar support, dock support, and a search feature to let you find the icons you’re looking for with ease.
If you’re looking for a material design and flat icon pack for Nova Launcher, then PINN is the one made just for you. The circular design of the icons combined with the strongly vibrant colors, give the icon pack a unique look. The individual elements in the icon pack also passed long shadows on the colorful icon background, this really looks remarkable when paired with a minimalistic wallpaper. The flat nature of the icons allow you to mix and match them to any wallpaper you choose, but we highly recommend that you go with a minimalistic and artistic background.

Mond Icon Pack
There are more than 2000 icons in Mond Icon Pack, yes that’s not a lot but most of the popular apps are covered. The icons are big, with rounded corners and look really great. One good thing I noticed about the icon pack is that the unsupported icons are also shaped the same, making the overall look very uniform. This is a huge plus for someone who values symmetry and don’t want mismatched icons all over their home screen and app drawer. Mond Icon Pack is a solid choice for those who love rounded corners on their square icons.
Do you like that crumpled paper look? We even if you don’t you will appreciate the unique style on the icons in this pack. The icons all look beautiful and go really well with almost any wallpaper. However, we really recommend that you go with the paper based wallpapers that come with the icon pack itself. That gives a great overall look to your Nova Launcher home screen. Personally I’ll be using this Nova Launcher theme for at least a month, it’s really pretty and makes my home screen actually look like it’s made out of paper.
Pangpang Icon Pack
Pangpang is a relatively new I can back so it doesn’t come with a lot of different icons. With only around 500 icons under its belt, the icon pack falls short of providing you with a ton of different options. However, most of the mainstream apps are supported well and auto icons look amazing. There also 6 different wallpapers that go with the overall theme of the icon pack and when you combine them both, you have a very distinctive looking feel to your home screen.
