You don’t need to choose the same nail art patterns over and over again. It’s time to start looking for something different – something that lets your personality come to life. Here’s some trendy nail art designs that are too awesome to miss.
Black Manicure with Diamante Twist
Start by doing a normal French manicure but use black polish instead of white for the tips. For two of your nails – the index finger and the ring finger, you only want to paint half of your tips with the black. Leave a small gap and then paint a straight line from tip to base on the outside of edges of your two nails.
On the ring finger, you can add some diamantes on the straight black line. If you only have a few diamantes, you can see that it works by adding a line on just one of your nails on one hand.
Opt for a Rainbow Manicure
What about taking the rainbow to your nails? This is an awesome design for the summer months. You bring life to the nails and will make everyone feel like it’s summer, even on the dreariest of days. You’ll likely onto work in six of the colours of the rainbow.
Only add the rainbow to two of your nails. It helps to save some time and gives you chance to focus on a couple of your favourite colours in the rainbow on the other nails.
Do a Pastel Manicure
Remember that you don’t need to opt for a traditional French manicure. You can use the same base colour on each of your nails. It’s the tips and detail where this type of nail art will differ.
Opt for a darker shade for your tips. Navy blue and black are popular options. You could also choose a dark brown colour. The benefit of nude colours is that they will work with the majority of darker colours. Now at the bottom of your nails, you want a half moon in a lighter colour, like yellow or pastel orange.
The curves don’t need to be the same on each nail. Don’t worry about perfection but about showing off your style.
Get the Metallic Look
Now it’s time to do something simple but impressive at the same time. Metallic polish is becoming all the range and you can use it on a daily basis. It works extremely well for special occasions.
Most people will use one metallic colour across each of their nails. Choose five different colours for your five nails on each hands if you can. If not then you want two or three colours at the bare minimum.
Don’t worry about any of the colours clashing. Clashing shades is the powerful part of this nail art design.
Go Floral on a Nude Base
Another amazing look that you need to try is a nude look with a floral design. Start with a nude base on every single nail. From here you can decide just how much nail art you want to do on your nails.
In this case, it’s every nail – and each nail has a different design. You could choose one or two nails on each hand if you would prefer. The ring finger and little finger or ring finger and middle finger work extremely well together.
Opt for a white polish for your nail art. This helps it to blend in with the nude design and add a subtly that other colours fail to do. You’ll also find you garner more attention from others, as they study your hands to see the nail art better.
Opt for Pastel with a Twist
Pastel colours are extremely popular. They look bright and girly, helping to bring cuteness and summer to your nails throughout the year. You can use them all together across your nails if you want, alternating them to create a bright and cheerful look.
When you use them for nail art, opt for pastel colours with a twist. Block your colours across each nails and then pull out a white polish. While many people will opt for white tips – like a traditional manicure – you can go one step further.
Why not opt for white all the way around the outer edges of your nails? This will help to pull in the attention to the beautiful summer look that you’ve created on your nails.
Do a Golden French Manicure
There is always something about French manicures that draws us in, right? A French manicure is sophisticated, stylish, and timeless. Well, it’s time to add a slight twist to the style, by opting for a golden manicure.
Rather than the white tips, you add gold tips. The rest of your manicure is almost the same – you’re still using a nude base. Try to opt for a sparkly gold for the tips of your nails to draw the attention.
Around the bottom of your tips, add white polish in dots. Alternatively, you can add small fake pearls along the bottom. Make sure the dots sit close together but don’t quite touch – you don’t want the polish running into each dot.
Make your nails stand out for the right reasons this year. Add creative and fun twists to some of the most popular styles and designs. You’ll soon find you have your friends asking where you got your nails done.
