Nail Art Trends: 10 Super Cute Designs You Can Do At Home

Seeing as there is a lockdown in most places, some people are lucky they are able to work from home while others have to wait until the isolation season is over to return to work. If you fall under the later category, then this is the perfect time to experiment with those nail art / designs you’ve been saving.

With the coronavirus pandemic, nail technicians are no longer able to save us, so having to go to the salon to get your nails done is out of the question. If you’re among the special group of women who are addicted to having their nails all cute and fancy, now is the perfect time to master the DIY skills you need to do your nails all by yourself. By the time the quarantine is over, you’d realize that you have experimented with so many nail art designs that you no longer need to go to the nail salon.

Here are 10 super cute nail art trends you should try…

1.Rainbow drops

If you’re a fan of the rainbow nail trend and searching for a unique method to join the train, this is the one for you. Choose a couple vividly colored nail polishes, the brighter the better. After that, paint your nails with a solid color as usual and let them dry. Once dry, add a drop of contrasting color to each nail. Simple as that.

2.Embellished flutter

If you already have nail extensions and just want to give them a makeover, look no further. The sweetness of butterflies is combined with the dazzle of decorations in the embellished flutter nail art. Paint your nails normally or in the French manicure style. Apply your choice of colorful glitter and butterfly cut-out accents before the polish dries. Finish with clear nail polish to keep the embellishments in place and give shine to the glitter.

3.Dainty blush

Creative and simple are two words that best characterize this beautiful pink nail art design. You’ll need a solid color nail paint (ideally a bright color), clear nail polish with glitters, white polish, and black nail polish to complete this look. You will also want polish brushes with varying point diameters. Apply the solid color paint, in this example pink, on four of your five fingernails. Then, on the “unpainted” fingernail, apply a clear polish.

After that, apply a small swipe of pink nail paint to the outside edges of the nail. Then, adjacent to the pink strokes, use your white nail paint in the same way. Finally, a clear glitter polish stroke should be the focal point of the celebration. Once dry, a toothpick dipped in black nail paint may be used to make dots on one section of the white stroke.

4.Cloud covering

Summer is defined by bright clouds, so let your nails reflect that with two tones of blue manicure paint this season. To begin, make the typical french manicure using the darker blue colour, and then use a cloud-like nail stencil to emboss the outline on the sides of your nails with the brighter blue shade.

6.Pink steps

Summer is a season for vibrant hues, so let’s go pink. This is one of the simplest nail art ideas that every DIY girl would like. Choose two pink nail polish colours (or any color you choose) and paint three fingernails with a single color. Use the deeper pink to make two french manicure details with a twist on the “unpainted” fingernails, leaving a negative space between each.

7.Orangey wiggle

Is this a challenging task? It’s much simpler than you think. Let’s start with two colors of a single nail color, like orange, and begin to work. Paint three fingernails with the polish, excluding two for the design. Next, using each of the colors, create a S detail with a tool such as a tiny-point brush. Finish with clear nail polish to tie everything together.

8.Color block

When it comes to color-blocking ideas for nail art, pairing pink with yellow is a terrific choice. Begin by polishing three fingernails, omitting two, like with several of the other nail art ideas on this list. To act as a discreet basis for the color-blocking, paint the removed two nails with nude nail polish. Next, divide the tip of your nails in half and paint one side diagonally with a single color. Then, using the opposite color, repeat the pattern on the second side.

9.French manicure

The French manicure is instantly identified as classic, reliable, and cherished. But did you know it’s actually rather simple? Learn how to perform French manicures at home in the video below.

10.Plaid nails

Forget about your plaid fabrics for now. This is the time to transfer those plaid prints that you love onto your nails. Wanna be more adventurous? You can even combine two or more designs to start your own trend.
