40 Chic Minimalist Nail Designs For Your Next Manicure
By KELLI CATANA
Glazed Donut Nails
Nail artist Zola Ganzorigt’s viral glazed donut nails popularized by Hailey Bieber have quickly become one of the biggest nail trends of the season. The look is achieved by applying a coat of OPI Gel Color in Funny Bone, before adding a top coat of OPI Chrome Effects in Tin Man Can to give the nails a shiny effect.
Diamond Dust Cuffs
This simple-yet-dramatic manicure was created by celebrity nail artist Betina Goldstein for actress Julia Garner to wear at the 2021 Met Gala. We adore how this look incorporates a small amount of silver glitter which undoubtedly adds a punch of glamour to an otherwise nude manicure.
White-On-White
Tom Bachik, nail artist to the stars, created this stunning design for Jennifer Lopez to wear during her wedding to Ben Affleck this summer. This milky white, monochromatic manicure with custom, minimalist nail art is perfect for anyone who wants to elevate their manicure with subtle designs.
A Touch Of Sparkle
If you want to avoid overly bejeweled nails but still like a bit of sparkle and shine, you don’t have to ditch the jewels completely. We love this placement of one lone jewel at the center of the base of each nail, as adding the stone to a natural nail lets the solitary jewel pop without feeling over-embellished.
Fresh As A Daisy
By adding a few small daisies to your neutral manicure you can instantly create a completely different vibe. You can play around with the placement of flowers, adding a small bunch of flowers to one nail and individual flowers on others, to give a pop of color and whimsy to your manicure.
