I’ve been loving some simple lines on my nails lately, well actually all through 2021 and even now in 2022. So I thought I would show you how you can create these designs yourself.
Just a quick disclaimer: I do my own gel nails but you can do all designs with regular nail polish.
Green lines and nude gel nails
Apply a nude nail polish or gel on all your nails. Once it’s dry take your green gel nail polish and a thin brush to create the lines. You can paint any lines, some more straight or curvy.
After the green, take your white nail polish and add a second line just right next to it. It helps making the green pop.
As a last step, seal in your design with a top coat of gel or nail polish to make your manicure last and keep it shiny.
I often do two to tree nails with a design on each hand and keep the rest of them plain. But you do whatever you like, deck out all your nails with the design or keep it even more minimal with only one accent nail.
Red and pink swirls
Now this one was another winner. You start of the same way, with a nude or light pink colour as your base.
Then take your pink nail polish and create a wavy line on the tip of your nails. I went with a dark pink but also a bright one will look great. After the your pink lines, repeat the process with the a red and white nail polish. Don’t place the lines flesh to each other, leave a small space between them.
For the thumb I went ahead and painted some hearts. With the same colours and one additional light pink I painted the hearts on. Start in the middle with a fairly small heart. Then outline it with your next colour and so on and on until you reach the border of your nail.
Take your favourite top coat and seal in the design. This nail art also looks good with other colour schemes like green, brown or even rainbow.
Cute Nail art the easy way
Pinterest is a treasure box when it comes to nail art. You can find so many cute designs and cool looks. I like to let me inspire by the platform and then put my won twist on it. Also you don’t have to do paint each and every nail with a crazy nail art idea. Mix and match is one of my favourite ways on how to paint my nails. Some nails will be more simple, some more elaborate and some even quite plain but in the end everything together will create a pretty manicure.
Now it’s your turn. What are you going to do? I’ll leave you with all my other nail art here. May it inspire you too.
