Vamp up your nails with these black and white designs
Paint your nails with a base coat of white polish. Once that’s dry, use a black striper brush to make zigzag lines across your nails. Finish with a top coat.
For a more subtle look, try this French manicure with a twist: Paint your nails with a nude polish. Once that’s dry, use a black striper brush to make thin lines along the tips of your nails.
Finish with a top coat. The thicker the line, the bolder it will be. These black and white designs are going to add a touch of sophistication and edge to any outfit you wear.
Ombre nails are still going strong in 2022
Ombre nails are a great way to add a bit of flair to your nails without going too over-the-top. To create the look, start with a light base color and then gradually add darker colors as you move towards the tips of your nails. You can use any colors you want, but we recommend sticking to two or three shades that complement each other. If you’re not sure where to start, try a classic black and white ombre or a pretty pastel gradient.

Get nail art tutorials at home with these tools
With nail art becoming more and more popular, it’s no surprise that people are looking for ways to get the look at home. While there are some great tutorials out there, you’ll need a few supplies before you can get started. Here are the must-haves for any would-be nail artist
1) Acrylic Paint – The most versatile paint you can use, this is a go-to for professional nail artists. The best colors? We recommend using pastels or neons so they don’t mix with other colors in your kit.
2) Flat Brush – Used by professionals and beginner artists alike, this is an essential brush to make all of your strokes perfect. Use with acrylic paint when applying color!
3) Detail Brushes – Great for adding fine details like flowers or bows on top of larger designs, these brushes will also come in handy when you’re practicing painting thinner lines such as French tips.
4) Dotting Tool – Another favorite among beginners and professionals alike!
If a French manicure isn’t your thing, try gel powder nails
Gel powder nails are a type of hybrid between gel and acrylics. They give your nails a sleek, polished look that lasts up to three weeks. Plus, they’re strong and chip-resistant.
Gel powder nails are perfect for anyone who wants the look of gel nails without the hassle of having to go back to the salon every two weeks for a touch-up. The only catch is that it takes longer to do this style than other manicures because you have to apply layers of the powder and let them dry in between each one.
That said, once you get it down, it’s worth the effort: not only will you save time with future manicures but your nails will always look freshly done.
Love glitter but don’t want it on your skin? Use it on your nails!
Glitter nails are one of the hottest trends of 2022 and we are here for it! Not only do they look amazing, but they’re also super easy to do.
Simply paint your nails with a clear base coat, then add a layer or two of glitter. Finish it off with a top coat and voila! You’ve got yourself a fabulous glitter mani that will make everyone jealous. But don’t stop there – you can even use glitter on your toes!
In 2019, nail artists began experimenting with different ways to incorporate glitter into their pedicures. One of the most popular was called glitter toes, where customers would go barefoot while getting their feet painted with white nail polish and covered in small pieces of iridescent shimmering gold pieces.
The result is beautiful: Your feet will sparkle like gold in any light, just like how they were when you were younger.
