Our Korean sisters’ beauty game is always on point, from their skin care to their brows. But have you thought about dressing up your nails the Korean way, too? Try out these fun nail art ideas so you'd nail the complete K-beauty look!
Half and half nails
Go crazy with creating two-toned symmetrical patterns on your nails! Don’t be afraid to pick the brightest hues in your nail polish stash: The more the colors clash, the better. Use a tape as a guideline if you’re not blessed with steady hands.
Not yet ready for a real tattoo? Try tattoo nails instead! They’re mini decals that look great even on bare nails, with designs ranging from minimalist patterns to intricate designs. Simply stick them on your nails and top with clear polish.
Negative space nails
Leaving uncolored spaces on your nails create a fun, unexpected illusion. There are so many ways you can go about this style—try half moons or half bare-half painted nails to give it a try.
Achieve mermaid-inspired nails by playing with pastel shades. Add glitter or scale patterns to complete your undersea princess look.
Draw perfectly straight lines on your nails by using tape to cover the parts you don't want to paint on. Use bright, contrasting hues to add a fun pop of color to your outfit.
Minimal accent nails
Play around with the accent nail trend by adding a dainty detail on one finger instead of painting it in a totally different hue. It's a sophisticated way to add a bit of variety to your mani.
If you love bling and sparkle, this K-beauty trend is for you! This design involves cutting bits of holographic paper and setting them over a base color to create the illusion of glass-like nails.You can always cop the style with glittery polish: Easier to apply, but just as sparkly and fun!
French tips 2.0
Upgrade your french tips by trading the usual white accent for a bolder hue. You can also go all out by tracing a color from your cuticles to your nail tips.
Take your nails up an ultra-girly notch by adding rhinestones, metallic details, and other 3D elements to your manicure. If you’re not into nail accessorizing, you can use a dotting tool to create dainty dots on your tips.
