Here are five basic nail designs that will look good on anyone:
Simple Dotted Nails
The dotticure nail art culture has always been a hit, and simple dotted nails are the kind of nail art that you won’t need tools for. You can have a simple white base and simply dip a toothpick in black nail polish then start dotting your nails. Make sure that they’re in varying sizes to create that extra dimension.
Heart or Star Details
Simple nude nails can look super chic by adding little details like a star or heart decal. You can add one for each nail or just choose two nails from each hand to put them on. Either way, this is a style that won’t require any tools and is very easy to do.
Metallic over matte nails will forever look classy and chic. It doesn’t even have to be complicated. Create tone-on-tone finishes that are easy, beautiful, and classic.
Horizontal or Vertical Glitter Line
This style is something you can do even when you’re on the go. It looks good on any nail polish. Just draw a horizontal line on your fingernail and you’re done. You can play with any color that you want, but for more chic looking nails, choose any neutral color as your base and then a brighter one to line with.
Slim French Tips
French tip is a popular choice for those who want to go for the classic and minimal look. Make it more stylish by making the line along the edges thinner and more delicate-looking.
What are cute nail designs that are easy to do?
If you’re one to enjoy cute nails then you’re going to love these easy-cute nail designs that you can do at home.
This is a cuter version of the dotted nails. Here, you have fewer circles in any size you want and you can have some circles overlap. But we recommend not to overdo it.
Adding more colors to your nails is always fun and it’s even better if it looks good. You can have a nude or pink base to start doing this design. Then choose three colors to line the middle part of each fingernail with. The line should be as thin as a spider web and should only be placed in the midsection of the nails.
Graffiti nails are fun and easy to make. Choose a basic color as a base and then swipe on a contrasting polish. There’s no right or wrong way to move your brush. Just make sure that you get the extra polish off the brush so that the bristles can leave marks on your nail as you swipe.
There’s nothing like pampering yourself with a fresh manicure and feeling like your best, especially if it’s something you can do at home.
