There’s nothing like a great manicure to give you a pick-me-up. With all of the time we spend typing and tapping on our devices, it only makes sense that our nails should look fabulous as often as possible. And since you can DIY almost any nail look, a mani is an accessible little luxury.
Not a nail-painting expert? No worries! As with most things, when it comes to nail art, practice makes perfect. Whether you prefer to do your own nails or to pay a professional to pretty up your hands, there are so many ways to get creative with your manicure.
Nothing makes me feel more effortlessly cool than minimalist nail art. I could be wearing a sweatshirt from college and jeans, but if my nails are on point, I have influencer-level confidence. Should I shoot a close-up of my hands wrapped around my coffee with my nails in plain view? I think yes.
You don’t have to shell out the big bucks for cute nails or settle for a one-note solid coat. Trust me: I’m not exactly skilled at creating works of art on dime-sized canvases, but the best part is that I don’t have to be with minimalist nail art. Bless the manicure-inept trendsetter who dreamed this up because the latest nail styles require almost no skill at all. All the minimalist nail art ideas rounded up here take less than 15 seconds to do (after your basic mani is set of course).
