How’re your nails doing? Go on, take a look. Do you see literally any tiny little blemish or scratch? Yep, that’s a good enough excuse, go get your nails done girl, you deserve it.
Deciding to get a nail refresh is easy, but deciding what to get is a whole other story. Long gone are the days of a simple colour wheel, oh no now there’s a whole world of shapes, colours, patterns, designs to choose from. Nail art is an easy way to step your game up, elevate any look from day to night, and looking incredible against your favourite handbag. Bold nails can add a whole other element to an outfit, giving you a punchy contrast or creating the illusion that your life is totally put together like your manicure. To help you decide and add to the ever-growing album on your phone, here’s some nail inspiration to go with your fave bag.
#1 Minimalist abstract art
For nail art that packs a punch without needing bold, tricky-to-style colours, these abstract etchings are the only nail inspiration you need. These Picasso inspired faces have been everywhere from t-shirts to vases, to earrings, and now we’re loving them on our nails set against a neutral of white base coat. Alternatively, minimalist illustrations like flowers or celestial symbols are also big on our radar. Neutral enough to look good against anything and everything, but bold enough to draw in all the compliments, we’d be opting for these nails to go with our all-black-everything looks, looking clean and sleek against a simple black bag. Against black, a bold colour might be too much for your minimalist aesthetic, but this more pared-down option is the nail inspiration you’ve been looking for.
