Skittles Nails

Want to try nail art, but need something that takes little to no effort? Try skittles nails, the trend that sounds much more complex than it truly is. Essentially, skittles nails are simply painting each of your nails a different color. Some like to paint the full rainbow on their fingers, giving each nail a vibrant pop. Others, though, prefer to stick to the same color family. Consider soft, pastel colors that just scream “spring,” such as a light blue, yellow, pink, and mint. No matter how you choose your color scheme, you can’t go wrong with skittles nails.

Animal Print

From the fashion world to nail art, animal print has truly reigned for some time now. First it was leopard, then snakeskin, and now, believe it or not, cow. Cow prints are popping up everywhere, including your next nail look! Simply paint your nails white, adding black blobs of different shapes and sizes. Alternatively, you could paint your nails black, following the same pattern with white blobs. This animal print is much more beginner-friendly, as you don’t have to be precise with any of the patterns. If you’re a skilled artist, though, give your best shot as whatever other animal print is calling your name.

Half Moons

Grown out nails, but make it chic. The half moon design is fairly simple, as all you have to do is leave off the bottom part of your nail. You can do this by either avoiding the bottom in a half moon shape, or tracing half a circle to flawlessly achieve this look. This trend pairs well with any color, but if you choose a bold or dark color, it’ll give off more of a color-blocked effect.
