What are your nails, if not little canvases for you (or your nail technician) to fill with designs, colors, and tiny little artworks? Yeah, you might say they’re here to physically shield your fingertips from constant smushing, but we say they’re there to be painted and looked at in awe. After all, nothing lifts up your mood better than a fresh mani.

As with anything, manicure is not insubordinate to trends, and if you are a real fashionista, it might take a little (or a lot of!) effort to keep up with them. Worry not, though! We’ve gathered the freshest and the trendiest nail art ideas into this one huge list to make your nail art-picking endeavors that much easier. And if you’re not the one to follow trends, some of these nail art ideas are pretty timeless or so kooky that they defy the laws of trendiness. And what's most important here is that no matter which of these nail designs you pick, they are sure to make your day that much better!

So, from simple nail art designs to elaborate creations and from cute little things and easy nail art ideas to artworks suitable for Elvira, the Mistress of Darkness herself, this is a pretty extensive nail art picture gallery. But that’s all well and fine because if you’re anything like us, scrolling through nail art designs has a therapeutic quality. The more, the merrier! 

Now, get on scrolling until you reveal the latest gallery of nail art designs! If you find a design that is like love at first sight - be sure to upvote it so it’ll find its way to the top of this list. Once that’s all well and done, share this article with other nail art aficionados that you might know; we’re pretty sure these colorful designs will make their day better, too!

No. How TF do people manage to live their daily lives with daggers like these at the end of their fingers? I would be a bloody mess of small stab wounds in no time, and would be getting the damned things removed—-or yanking/cutting them off myself if it gets bad enough—-by the end of the first day. Actually no. I wouldn’t have them done like this in the first place.
