. Black and White Trim
You can look beyond fabulous but without going over the borderline. Try two different ways using just two colors: white base with a black border, or black base with a white border. Either choice is dually delightful.
This soft pattern is so femininely cute. You may lay down two or more colors into this checkered design to get a nice striped look.
Pink and White Snowflakes
Some snowy days of Winter can be more fun with these adorable snowflake drawings. The base coat can be a medium shade of pink, purple, or a similar warm color.
Red Nails and Gold Beads
Look really warm and attractive by using some dark or deep red as a base color, then add some pink trim and gold adhesive beads and details.
Pink Cherry Blossoms
Wouldn’t you like your looks to blossom this spring? Sure! Why not? Just polish some nails with a wild shade of pink and design the other nails with the art of cherry blossom branches and flowers.
Be bold and bedazzled by blending together two shades or two colors, along with a glitter top coat and stick on some adhesive sequins or mini-rhinestones.
. Black and Gold Spots
How many gold dots can be under and over the black spots? As many as you would like! You can use black and a light color as separate base colors and for polka-dots. Also add on gold glitter polka-dots for a shiny finishing touch.
. Classic Sweater Inspired Design
Almost everybody has sweater with either stripes, geometrical shapes, forest pattern or an abstract motif. Whatever you got, it’s better on your nails with just two or three contrasting colors.
Look cute and natural like a little flower garden with these little peach ‘n white flowers, along with some gold or silver glitter in the flowers’ center.
Pink to Purple Blend
If you like pretty colorful fades and shades, then check right here for a great pink and purple Ombre gradient. You’ll need to gently mix half-n-half to get a good soft look.
B & W Puzzle Pattern
Do you like puzzles and abstract shapes. Yeah, they are always fun and interesting. So make yourself interesting too by decorating alternate colors of puzzle pieces on your nails. Just use a tip of a pen to add the half-circles.
. Little Matte Flowery Garden
Just get some non-gloss blue, white and black to make your own mini floral garden on all your nails. For an added 3D touch, try on some blue adhesive sequins as the flowers’ center.
. Blue and Silver
If you are feeling the “blues” these days, we can cheer you up with two beautiful blue and silver colors. For each stripe or shape, stick on some scotch tape between polishes.
Pink, White and Sparkly
As if this were a blast from the past of the colorful 1970’s or 1980’s, here is great mix of four polishes for perfect bright and shiny look. Alternatively, you could use small stick-on rhinestones for one nail.
This awesome mani is one of the easiest (and cutest) nail designs to master. Neon pink color is perfect for warm and sunny days. Agree?
Blue, Purple and Glitter
Welcome to the Ombre glitter galaxy! As you fly through this nail galaxy, you can experience bold blue and popping purple and of course all the glittery stars!
