Who doesn’t love a good mani? After all, there’s nothing like a fresh manicure to make you feel put together and polished. So if you’re looking for some nail inspo, here are 10 of my all time favorite classy nail designs. Whether you’re headed to a black tie event or just want to dress up your everyday look, these designs will have you looking your best and literally sparkling.
1. Glitter French Tips
Add some sparkle and glamour to your nails for the holidays. Whether you’re attending a party or just want to dress up your everyday look, this design will definitely make you sparkle. Plus, you don’t need to go to a salon to get glitter French tips – you can easily do them at home with just a few supplies. All you need is some clear nail polish, glitter, and tape.
2. Glazed Donut Nails
Hailey Bieber’s nails are always on point, and her glazed donut manicure is no exception. It’s the perfect mix of sweet and sophisticated. To get the look, start with a nude base coat and then apply a light pink polish to the tips of your nails. Next, use a white polish to create the glazed donut effect by painting it on in a thin layer. Finally, add some sprinkles for extra fun!
3. Minimalist Swirls
This nail design is elegant, clean, and modern. It’s perfect for those who want a minimalist look but with some flair. To create this design, start with a base coat of your favorite color. Then, use a thin brush to paint swirls on each nail. Make sure the swirls are evenly spaced and not too thick. Finish with a top coat for extra shine.
4. Outlined French Tips
We can’t deny that the French tip manicure is a timeless classic. But for a more unique spin, try an outlined French tip design. To create this look, start with a nude base color and use a white polish to paint a thin line along the shape of the tips.
5. Natural Nude Nails
Nude nails are always in style and make for a great go-to manicure. They look effortlessly chic, but still natural and low-key. Whether you prefer a pinky nude or a more beige shade, there’s a perfect nude nail polish out there for you.
6. White Marble Nails
This white marble nail design is the epitome of classy. I love the clean, crisp look of the white against the natural colors of the marble. This design can be both simple and complex depending on how much detail you add.
7. Pearl Bejeweled Nails
Adding pearls to your nails is a simple way to give your manicure a touch of glamour. Whether you choose to go with all white pearls or mix it up with some color, this nail design is sure to turn heads. And the best part? It’s relatively easy to do yourself. Just grab some pearls from your local craft store, and you’re ready to create this look at home.
8. Glitter Ombré Nails
There’s something about glitter ombré nails that just screams “party!” Maybe it’s the way the light catches the sparkly polish, or maybe it’s the festive feel of the color combination. Whatever the reason, I can’t get enough of this fun and festive nail design.
9. Pearly French Tips
While the French manicure is always in style, I’m really into this pearly twist on the classic design. It’s perfect for a special occasion or anytime you want to feel like a million bucks. To get the look, start with a nude base coat and then apply a white tip. Once the tips are dry, add a layer of pearlescent polish to give them a bit of shimmer. Finish it all off with a clear top coat and voila! You’ve got yourself one chic manicure.
10. Gold Flakes Nails
Gold flakes are a simple and elegant way to add some luxury to your nails. They can be applied as an accent nail or all over, depending on your preference. To achieve this look, start with a base coat of polish and then apply a layer of gold flakes. You can find these at most craft stores. Once you have applied the flakes, top it off with a clear top coat to seal in the design.
Trust me, these designs will add that extra touch of class and confidence to your look. And the best part? You can achieve these designs at home or pop into the salon, either way you’ll love the result. For more nail design ideas, check out my post on minimalist nail art.
