7 Simple and Cute Nail Designs to Try at Your Next Appointment

Glitter Stars

Show off your sparkle with these shiny stars. If you have never used paint to draw before, start by making small squares and joining them together. It's great that you don't have to make full stars to get your point across.

Flame Tips

Incorporating vivid flames is a novel approach to the traditional French tip. Experiment with this design using white, or experiment with a combination of neon or primary colors.

Pastel Hearts

You could be reminded of a well-known confectionery used on Valentine's Day by this delightful design. Give yourself a break from the conventional red and hot pink hearts and go for this variety of pastel tones instead.

Green and Gold Accents

These sophisticated gold and green embellishments on the tip of the nail create an unusual negative space manicure design. Although they are not exactly a French tip, they are nonetheless quite attractive.

Yellow Half Moons

Fill in the half-moon shapes at the base of your nails to add a splash of color to a simple manicure. Even though yellow is the main color, you can try out other colors too.

Arrow

Bejeweled

We think these nails have just the right amount of sparkle. The heart-shaped jewels in the middle of the nail and the golden spiral around them are both beautiful and easy to do.

Arrow

Blooming Flowers

This design is fun because of its bright colors, but the growing gel base is what really makes it stand out. When you put five dots of your best color polish on top of the base, the polish will "bloom" on its own as the dots slowly spread out and grow into petals.
