Nail Art Ideas for Prom

The chevron design is one of the simplest you could try at home, and we’ve achieved it both freehand, and with the help of shaped nail tape too. If you have zig-zag scissors, you could even cut up tape at-home. Place the tape over your nails, then apply your paint, and once the polish has dried and you peel the tape away, you should be left with something that looks a little bit like this. We love the way that glitter has been used over the neutral peachy-nude shade, and you’ll find contrasts like that, even subtle ones, can make a massive impact.

If you don’t have a lot of time to redo your nails in time for prom, or just need a hand with something that’s simple, to the point, and elegant, how do you feel about these stunning designs? They’re nude and simple, but one nail has been called upon to become the “featured nail”. You can change the whole appearance of your manicure just by adding that one glitter nail, and it’s definitely one of the easiest of the bunch.

Decorating the cuticles is a really big deal right now, and whether you’re looking at using rhinestones, glitter, or even wire nail art, it’s a must-have look if you want to be fashionable and elegant at prom this year. It’s very simply a case of adding nail tape to the main bulk of the nail, just leaving that half-moon cuticle section free, and then painting with your preferred glitter shade. Cover with top coat and you’re good to go. Could life be any simpler?

These pink marble nails are stunning, aren’t they? If you’re on the hunt for elegant nail art designs for prom 2018, you can’t go far wrong with marble nails. They’re the very epitome of elegance and class. They’re not overly difficult to do at home either, just in case you don’t have time to head to the nail salon. We’ve seen plenty of tutorials on Youtube, and we’ve even had great success trying to recreate some of the looks at home too!
