If you’re looking to make your nails into awesome pieces of art, there are two great ways to go about it. Matching colors perfectly is definitely one, thinking outside the box is another. Try to think of color mixes that aren’t overdone but work together. Simply think back to your color wheel from art class.
Colorful Nail Designs – Part Three.
Remember Your Color Wheel for Nail Designs.
If colors aren’t working, try shades and shimmering metallic hues. Of course, you can’t match colors perfectly without matching them with perfect patterns. Combine colors with patterns to make odd colors work better together, and to show bravery in fingernail art. Dots, stripes, and ombre are always awesome but mixing makes your fingertips stand out. This collection of pictures and descriptions will help and give the inspiration needed.
Crimson French Tips.
Red and French tips match perfectly. Why? They’re both sexy and ladylike and white can only go so far, crank it up a notch with vivid red. These pretty nail designs are easy to paint yourself. These, in particular, are nice because they’re slightly translucent, supplying exclusivity.
For the queen of color matching, they’re covered with colors that match, but one wouldn’t usually mix. Black and white will go with anything, silver and gold hint at royalty, and in combination, look amazing. Pair with a red lipstick like this model, for extra zest.
It was fun when you were a kid, you didn’t have to clean up. Just use glue and dip your fingers in a jar, you’d probably be mature enough not to get it everywhere. Try a glittery rainbow on your fingers, just to feel nostalgic.
Embrace your cuticles and your silly side with these interesting designs. Yellow and blue are cute together and paired with soft colored jewels, they dazzle. Add some white to your cuticles for a look few have ever seen, especially with the gap between the white and the other colors. How unique!
Colorful Nail Designs.
Having different colors on each nail is always fun, but how can you change it up even more? Ombre, of course. Randomize the ombre, both in color and placement on the nails, to heighten the awesome beauty of these nails. Pick your colors so they match for best effect.
Going to an interesting party, or maybe a burlesque show? Black French tips are always unique. Combine it with pink for a punk style. Some hot pink patterns of the tips guarantee you’ll have the coolest nails at the party.
Pink on Pink.
Literally, all hues of pink go well together, as is the case with these cute fingernails. Each fingertip is painted a different, yet similar color. And then, following what’s trendy, the ring finger is different. Very different. Silver, in fact. But with the combination of pink and white immediately beside it, we aren’t too shocked by the shimmering color.
Often when we mix colors, we want them to pop but not always. This combination of green and white is subtle, even with jewels involved. It’s perfect for a wedding, whether you’re the bride or a guest. You can mix dark green with white to get all the hues, so it’s cheap and easy.
When combining colors, you can either play it safe and only use a shade or two, or you can go all-out and use a whole plethora. Choose one that stands out, like the red on this model’s pinky, just to add some pizzazz.
Ombre is fun, and it’s a great way to match colors but it’s not always necessary. Instead, add some sparkle to your fingertips. Although blue is the main color on this model’s fingers, some pink and just a splash of silver make them extra cute. These are youthful, so wear them when you need to feel hip and young.
It’s common to mix neon colors, but what if you don’t feel that loud? You’d be surprised how far white can take you in that case. It’s a bright hue, and while we think of it plain, it isn’t boring.
When you feel like spending time on your nails, work with this fun pattern. There’s lots going on, including gold cuticles, red dots that grow in size, unique white lines, and a stylish new take on French tips. It sounds like a lot, but it looks absolutely perfect if you use the proper tools to make each line and dot perfect.
Red and purple are a fun combination and sparkles are a girl’s best friend. Here are some fun patterns, too. Purple sparkles surround one cuticle, another, red divides the middle. Purple sparkles also sit atop the red base and on the ring finger, different as always, there’s a cool bubbly pattern.
Add big, shiny jewels to your fingernails, they’re cheap little things from arts and crafts stores and they’re super easy to glue on. Pick a base color that goes with the jewels, in this case, sparkling blue and bright, pure white.
Bright, Summery Nails.
Crash into summer vacation with these bright nails. Don’t follow a pattern, simply match colors, by making your cuticle match your finger, and all the colors work together overall. Then, for good measure and extra color volume, place a jewel on each finger. The colors of the jewels need to match your fingers, without being any color you used already.
