Sometimes you just want to have some fun with your nails. You want to step away from the expectations of beauty and glamour and have something cute to show for your work. Here are some cute nail art ideas that are a must.
Get a Tequila Sunrise on Your Nails
Who said that you could only drink a tequila sunrise? It’s time to add the colouring to your nails. You just need a yellow and an orange polish. Start with the yellow at the tips and the orange at the bottom. You’ll need to blend the two colours together in the middle. Yes, it looks just like a normal sunrise!
Get Dotty with Your Nails
Now let’s try another very simple but cute nail art idea. It’s time to get dotty and for this you can use absolutely any colour you want. The more the better! Opt for one colour as the base and then a clashing colour for your polka dots. Make the dots as big or as small as you wish. If you want a nail without the dots, choose the middle one.
Isolate Your Polka Dots
Instead of clashing colours and adding polka dots to every nail, isolate them to just one nail – your thumb nail. Opt for a white base and choose red for the dots. Add plain red to the rest of your nails to finish off the look.
Add in a Heart
Two three colours: red, white, and pink. Start by painting your nails with each of the colours as your base – alternating them. Add polka dots to your index and middle fingers, keeping your little finger and thumb completely clear. On the ring finger, add a heart in the middle with the red outline (you want the base of this finger to be pink) and fill it in with white. Add red and white polka dots around the heart to complete the look.
A Variation of the Heart
Opt for three colours again. This time you want two shades of pink and a silver. Alternate your base with block colours, making sure the ring finger is silver and the middle finger is your lighter pink. Polka dot all your fingers except the middle one. On this finger, add a couple of hearts – you can make the hearts all one colour or add an outline with your third colour. Polka dot around the hearts.
Ladybug Your Polka Dots
It’s time to add a ladybug design to your nails. You’ll need a red, a black, and a glittery nail polish. On the middle finger, thumb, and little finger paint the nails red and add the black spots. On the other two fingers, you want to create a curve with the red, leaving some of your bare nail visible. Add the black polka dots on the red and then the glittery polish across the bottom of the red curve.
Have the Artist Look
This is a beautiful design for those who want to look like artists – or pieces of art. Start with a red base and then pull out black and white polishes to finish the look. With a fine brush, just add dots of black and white all over your nails. The idea is that they look like splashes of paint while you’ve been working or decorating. The splashes don’t need to be even or symmetrical, making it a quick but cute look.
It’s time to get artistic with your nails. Have some fun and don’t be worried about using clashing colours.
