Supplies That You’ll Need
Before we look into different nail art designs, we need to discuss
the supplies you might need. If you intend to create simple and elegant
designs, you don’t need much but if you want to truly delve deep into
the world of nail art, you might need some tools.
- Dotting tools
- Orangewood Stick or Toothpick
- Q-Tips or Cotton swabs
- Nail Colors
- Nail Brushes
- Nail Polish Remover
- Acrylic Paints
- Striping Tapes or Scotch tape
- Top Coat and Base Coat
- Nail stickers
- Loose Glitter and confetti
You can make do with just the top coat, base coat, nail colors, and
other essentials so you don’t really need acrylic paints, nail stickers,
loose glitter, and rhinestones but they’ll help you create designs with
a little more oomph.
Easy and Beautiful Nail Art Designs
As mentioned before, there’s no limit to what you can do with your
nails. You’ll find several articles online that showcase and describe
nail art designs. Some of the more flexible designs can be easily customized to your needs.
- French Manicure With a Twist – The traditional French
manicure is a simple, elegant, and timeline nail art design. It looks
great and is easy to do, especially if you have steady hands and have
done some practice. However, you can easily spice up the design by
adding a creative twist. You can add a chevron design with the
traditional French manicure colors, add glitter to the tips of your
nails, place an upside down V at the tips of your nails, etc. Some
artists also create beautiful designs with the white color like flowers,
butterflies, stars, and snowflakes.
- Polka Dots – Polka dots are very pretty and playful. They’re
also surprisingly easy to create, especially if you have a dotting tool.
You can use any color combination you want to create different kinds of
effects. For example, the traditional black base with white polka dots
looks sophisticated and elegant while red polka dots on a white surface
will look playful and bright. There’s no limit to the number of
combinations you can create. All you need to do is make sure the base
color and the polka dot color complement each other.
- Stripes and Lines – Stripes and lines can also help you create versatile and interesting nail art designs.
You can do simple vertical or horizontal stripes, combine the two to
create a check pattern, or paint stripes of different thickness the on
the nail. If you have nail art stickers or stencils, stripes and lines
are very easy to do. If you don’t, you just need to have steady hands
and some practice to create straight and sharp stripes. The end result
is always attractive and interesting.
- Matte and Glossy – The combination of matte and glossy
polishes can give a mesmerizing effect. For example, if you add glossy
black polka dots, flowers, or designs on a matte black surface, the
effect is sophisticated and eye-catching. This is one of the easiest
ways to create an interesting design. You can also paint some nails
completely matte and some completely glossy.
- Glitter and Holo – If you’re a fan of nail art, you’re probably familiar with the term holo.
Holographic top coats add some sparkle and glitter to your nails and
don’t require much effort. You can easily apply a good basecoat, add the
holo top coat, before you apply a glossy top coat over it to enhance
the shine and glitter.
