Daisy Nails Are The Floral Manicure Trend That Never Goes Out Of Style

Floral nails are evergreen, and a crowd favorite is adorable ditsy daisy nails. Simple but eye-catching, daisy decals can go with a huge range of manicure designs, from a single-color to a French manicure base, and even on top of loud patterns. They're the perfect add-on to your nails for spring and summer, bringing blooms to your fingertips.

While daisies are white and yellow in real life, you don't need to stick to this color scheme with a daisy manicure. You can paint your daisies all colors of the rainbow, and mix and match them with a variety of patterns. Whether you want them to be bold and retro or subdued and elegant, there are so many options when it comes to daisy nails. Best of all, with a steady hand and some creativity, a daisy manicure is relatively easy to create at home. A nail art brush and a dotting tool are all it takes to create these pretty little flowers. Furthermore, you can let your imagination run wild with different color schemes and details, even incorporating gems, metallic polishes, and nail stickers into your daisy design.

Three-toned daisy manicure

Daisies are simple-looking flowers, so if you want to make your daisy nails more eye-catching, one way is to experiment with color. This manicure uses three bright colors to create a beautiful palette and tie the nail look together. We love how each of the daisies uses two out of the three colors to make them look cohesive, even with a busier pattern.

Daisies and pearls

Take a daisy manicure and make it a lot more luxe with flowers and pearls. This unlikely combination simply works. The playfulness of the daisies and the elegance of the pearls makes this manicure look feminine but elevated. It's a great choice if you want daisy nails for a special event.

Dreamy blue background

These daisies almost look like they're floating through the sky or on a gentle backdrop of water. The iridescent blue base of this manicure is so pretty and really sets it apart from the rest. To recreate the look, use holographic blue nail polish (or try regular blue polish with a holographic top coat). With a blue base, white daisies look effortloessly delicate and pretty. There's a sense of realism with this look, so go with the traditional daisy colors of white and yellow.

A daisy for each nail

If you really want the flowers to be the star of the show, paint a separate daisy on each nail. Since these daisies take up almost the whole nail, they're extra bold and eye-catching. To make the look even more fun, choose a different color for each daisy. Sticking with a color theme, such as pastel colors in this case, can make the manicure look cohesive overall.

Itty bitty daisies

On the other side of the spectrum, we have these little itty bitty daisies. At a quick glance, they hardly look like daisies at all and could be easily mistaken as polka dots in passing. This is a subtle daisy manicure for when you want to include florals but don't want them to take over your nail. Choose a natural-toned background and use a light color like white or pale yellow to make the daisies even more subtle.

Barbiecore daisy nails

With their bright pink colors and girly designs, we're loving Barbiecore looks right now. Combining daisies and vivid pink hues, this manicure evokes Barbie as if she were a florist. The nearly fluorescent colors and the large flowers almost make this nail look feel tropical, so it's the perfect summer mani.

Checkerboard and daisies

Daisies can still shine even when they're not on their own. Lots of patterns, especially nostalgic and retro ones, work beautifully with daisy decals. For example, with their funky colors, these checkerboard nails are incredibly fun. The scattered daisy designs add a bit of femininity that makes them look feel even more youthful.

Yellow daisy nails

With their yellow center and sunny disposition, daisies feel like happy flowers. To really lean into that bright, summer vibe, try a white and yellow daisy manicure. This look is elegant with its French manicure base, but the bright yellow pops and stunning daisy flower sets it apart from more traditional designs.

Daisies and cow print

Daisies can also have a kind of romantic, cottagecore feel, so why not pair them with cow print? It's not the first match we think of, but once you see them together, it makes so much sense. To give each pattern its space to shine, place them on alternating nails.

Lots of daisies

There's no need to stop at just one daisy on each nail. These crowded daisy nails are so pretty, and they're even more distinctive with the mismatched colors. For a look like this, you can use as many colors as you'd like, but if you stick to a specific color palette, your nails will have a more cohesive look. That said, if you want to go wild, draw a daisy in every color you have.

Retro daisy pattern

Playful swirls and bright neon colors give this daisy manicure its retro feel. White daisies simply wouldn't do here; the multi-color daisies are a must, and we love how none of the centers match. It makes this mismatched pattern feel even more fun and retro!

Daisy accent nail

Isolating one daisy all on its own somehow makes the little flower even more striking in this manicure. The contrast between the white daisy and the dark blue base makes the accent nail stand out. This is a cute way to incorporate daisies into your look without going overboard.

Daisies with gems

Itty bitty gems make these daisy nails feel a little more glam. Instead of a dot of nail polish at each center, use a nail gem to give each daisy more sparkle. To get this look at home, use a dotting tool or nail brush to create the daisy petals. Then, stick a nail gem on once your daisies are dry.

Daisy outline

This take on a daisy manicure is unique but also surprisingly easy to recreate. To create this negative-space daisy, start with a base coat of your choice. Once dry, place a daisy-shaped sticker in the middle of each nail. Take another nail polish color and dot it onto a makeup sponge. Use the makeup sponge to create a gradient look over the nail sticker. Once this coat is dry, peel off the nail sticker, and you'll be left with this negative-space daisy design.

Little frog friend

Nail art daisies often look a little cartoonish. You can lean into this vibe by adding other little characters. A little frog is an adorable addition to this daisy manicure. It makes us think about sitting in a lovely flower field beside a pond — an idyllic image if you're into nature-inspired designs.

Metallic daisies

Want to add the illusion of sparkle without adding actual sparkles? Metallic nail polish can give you this glimmering effect. These polishes come in a range of colors, from bright to neutral. Darker tones give the daisies a bit of an edgy look, perfect for when you want a floral manicure but don't want it to feel too innocent.

'70s daisy nails

The colors in this manicure remind us of the '70s, with the green, beige, and pink color palette giving them a fun, retro look. The bubble designs make these nails feel nostalgic as well; in fact, its vibe loosely reminds us of the Mystery Machine from "Scooby-Doo." These small details really set this manicure apart from plainer floral nails.

Disco daisy manicure

Carrying on the retro theme, we love these daisy nails with a disco feel. With daisies, sparkles, and a checkerboard pattern that looks a bit like a disco ball, this floral manicure belongs on a dance floor. The bright colors really make this manicure pop, but an alternative is to recreate this look with metallic nail polishes for a major disco vibe.

Daisy field

With the combination of green, sky blue, and white, these nails remind us of lying in a daisy meadow on a clear summer's day. The green glitter topcoat gives this nail look some texture that reminds us of a grassy knoll. This manicure has a balmy and warm aesthetic overall that just works so beautifully for spring and summer.

Daisy French manicure

Lay your daisy designs on top of a French manicure for a lively and classy nail look. While you can choose a traditional white-tipped French manicure as your base, you can also flex your creativity here to make your nails more playful. This manicure uses a gradient yellow-to-red French tip base instead to add more color. It ties well with the daisy designs since each center matches the gradient colors.
