1. Try Sunset Nail Art Design by Using Liquid Sand Nail Polish:

This is awesome nail art design will remind you of the night and the sunset. This has been done using Zoya Pixie dust nails Lacquer and sand nail polishes. Sand finish nail polishes gives you a sand life effect, which seems as if you have really applied some sand on to your nails. These have been recently launched in India and are quite costly.

However you may try out this unique nail art using 2 colours of sand nail polishes viz. Black and Glitter sand nail polish from Zoya in orange or yellow. Additionally sponge up a red colour or a pinkish tone on to the top portion. Use the black at the middle. Do not use a top coat for this one. That is essentially because you do get to see the glitter, that gets wasted otherwise with an extra layer of protective top coat.

2. Black Floral Nail Art Designs:

The flowers are all different and unique, but the pattern is similar with four flowers cupped together on each nail at varied places. You can try out this nail art by using a golden nail polish as a base and some black special polish. Use the special polish to stamp out floral designs from a definite stamping plate. Looks very beautiful and easy to do.

3. Water Decal Designer Nail Art Designs:

These types of nail art designs can be created using water decals of the above pattern on to white base paint. You must finish this design with a good top coat application otherwise your whole effort will be wasted in a short time. The nail paint can have Aztec paint like this or you can flaunt your favorite character from any TV show in its teensy form as well, whatever suits you best.

4. Easy Black and Red Bling Sand Nail Art Design:

You can create this nail art by using sand nail polishes in red and black from zoya. You can additionally create patterns and add some rhinestones for the Bling effect. For the nail color, as you see, two fingers have flowers while the other three don’t, not that it is stealing away the show for any less.

5. Sponge Effect Sunset Nail Arts by Using Metal Finish Nail Paint:

This nail art can be created easily by using 3 different shimmer finish colours of high quality nail polishes and a sponge. You will need metal finish nail polishes for this nail art. Use a top coat to cover and seal this design. The effect is very ombre like, so when you are bored of the same uni color design, this one is your ticket to standing out for the good reasons. This can be a look that you take along to the beach for the day.

6. Trio Sand Nails Polish Art:

This is another sand finish nail art done using 3 different sand finish nail polishes from Zoya. You can create this design by using scotch tapes so that one colour doesn’t smudge on to the other. While you might think violet and blue don’t settle well with each other, that evidently isn’t the case always, as you see how different this look is and it is equally unique.

7. Simple Splatter Nails with KB Shimmer Candy Cane Crush Nail Polish:

First the bad news, this nail art has been created using KB Shimmer Candy Cane crush nail polish which has different coloured sequins in it. This nail polish may not be available in India. However you can create a similar splatter effect with loose nail art sequins or use a nail art brush and splat the required colours on to the nails by diluting little bit of nail polish on a palette mixed with a little bit of nail remover or acetone. The choices of the colors here are great and as you can clearly see, the black and white are complimenting each other on an excellent note.

8. Crowstoes Voodoo Nail Design:

This is an amazing nail polish if you can get your hands on this one then this manicure is just a swipe away. The top coat is important for this one, because you do not want the glitter flying around everywhere. Also, the top coat color needs to be transparent to look flawless. However this is one of the best manicures that you can come across.

9. Awesome Stamping Nail Art for Beginners:

You don’t always have to be very creative while creating a nail art. This nail art is an example of that. Use your special blue stamping polish and a light blue base paint. This literally has only one color and still manages to impress. Speaks volumes about how even the simplest things can work wonders.

10. Easy Striping Tape Nail Art Design Idea:

This can be easily done with sponging technique and striping tape. The striping nail arts are easily available and with online shopping doing the rounds, it should be as easy as day for you to get hold of one. Try it!
