Lucky for you, we have scouted 15 pretty, minimal manicure designs that is suitable for your work place, for women who are just trying out nail art and for those who believes nail art is a great alternative for your plain and boring nail polish. Lets begin our list of 15 amazing and simple manicures to try this season, starting with #15.
#15. Hint of gold
Add a little bit of glamour into your nails with hints of gold. It could be a single stripe of gold or silver, depending on how you like it. You can also choose a different dark base color instead of the usual black, maybe navy or dark green.
You don’t even have to do this to all your nails. You can choose to do only two using a white base polish and silver polish. In a bowl of water, add a drop of silver glittery polish then swirl the polish that’s in the water with a toothpick to create a marble-like effect. With Vaseline or any type of lotion coating the sides of your nails, soak your finger into the marble then remove the excess polish with the tooth pick. Let it dry then add a clear coat.
#13. Subtle animal print
On a matte color based nail, create animal print using the same color of your base but this time, make sure to use regular nail polish for a subtle effect.
#12. Half triangle
Create a half triangle at the tip of your nails using metallic nail polish. Use a few strips of tape and two complimentary colors.
This is one easy way of using a matte nail polish and a regular nail polish. Look how chic the nails look.
