Gone are the days when you can only sport colors, rhinestones, glitters, and frost on your nails. With today’s technology and trends, the sky’s the limit when it comes to how you can design them. They may not seem like the biggest spaces for you to showcase your creativity, but they definitely offer enough room if you’re daring enough.

Statement Nails

Got something to say? Paint them on your nails for all of the world to see.

Minimalist with a Punch

Sometimes less is a whole lot more when it comes to nail art. You just need a little creativity to make them work well for you.

Logo Nails

Proclaim your love for your favorite designer brands by sporting their logo on your nails.

French Tips with a Twist

Love the sophistication of French trips but want something new? Artists have been giving them a twist in various ways so you can just take a pick or get inspired by them.

Green with Romance

Nowadays, flowers aren’t the only things that can invoke romance in the air. Leaves and green petals can also look very pretty and feminine on your hands.

Shiny and Textured

Add an unexpected touch to your metallic nails by adding some texture to it. This grunge-y posh touch will surely surprise onlookers.

Reverse French Tips

If you love the minimalism of French tips but want something different, this reversed version might just do the trick for you. It will highlight your cuticle instead so it can really make for an interesting set of nails.

3D Nail Art

Technically, 3D nail art isn’t something new. A lot of people has been adding rhinestones and other embellishments to their nails for years now. However, certain techniques tend to take things to the next level. And some goes beyond your nails.

Whether you count it as nail art or hand art or accessorizing, it will still be a striking addition to your overall look.


Like the 3D nail art, this one also goes beyond just your fingernails. It’s more like body art but since it’s an extension of your nail’s design, you can still count it as another kind of nail art.

Let It Bleed

If you thought that you can only use the dripping technique for your gory, Halloween looks, think again. This messy nail art can also look nice in the right design.

Multicolored Glitter

Want to go all glam, loud, bold, and shiny? Use different glittery colors on your nails. This will surely turn heads no matter where you go.

A Pop of Color

This is also not a new trend but it continues to be a popular style in the fashion industry because of the contrast it offers. It can be as simple as using a neutral or pale hue on most fingernails and then a loud and bright shade in a single finger. Some also opt to put nail art in a single fingernail to add more drama. Either way, it looks great and full of personality.

Tweed Nails

Who knew something so classic as tweed can look so modern and exciting when translated into nail art? There are also tons of ways how to customize this design, so it can definitely be a great way to express your creativity.

Too Cool to Care

Watercolor Nails

Who said you can only wear solids, patterns, and drawings on your nails? You can also sport swirls of colors with the right techniques.

Celestial Nails

Another take on romantic nails are these starry designs that will make you swoon.

Maximalist Mixed Metals
