10 Types of Accent Nails to Try

Add a little of your personality to your manicure. Any nail can be your desired accent nail, though most chose to do their ring finger.

1. Animal Print

This style is everywhere and is not retiring anytime soon. Let’s bring the jungle to your accent nail and show a little bit of your wild side. This accent nail on the ring finger will be very interesting. If you are the type that likes to have everything evenly proportionate, then the middle finger will be just right for you. Since the middle finger is the longest is already catches the most attention but adding animal print will definitely turn heads and widen eyes.

2. Neon

Neon is very vibrant and will most definitely make your nail pop. If you have your other nails a darker tone the accent nail will stand out. I haven’t seen many wear this accent nail design.  Who knows, maybe after you wear this design it may start to trend and be more popular. If you have a still hand you can create this art yourself but if you like the convenience of a nail salon, they certainly can do this style on your accent nails.

3. Solid

Make your accent nail stand out by being simple. These accent nails can be your favorite color or a color that may match an outfit. Making your accents nails with a solid design on your pinky finger will be so cute. When I think of a pinky finger as an accent nail I think of elegance. I imagine someone drinking a cup of tea with their pinky sticking out with each sip.

4. Polk-a-Dot

This accent nail can be something that you can create or have the professionals at the salon do for you. If the base coat of your other nails is a solid color make that the color of the dots on your accent nails. The color will match well and yet will still stand out. What I mean, if all of your nails are black, make the background color of your accent nails white. Then add black dots on top of those accent nails. Let this design be on your index finger. Next time you point at something you can do it in fashionably.

5. Jewelry

Diamonds are said to be a girl’s best friend. Why not add it to your accent nails? A little diamond stud on your accent nails will definitely draw attention to your customized manicure. The sparkle will make those accent nails stand out. Having jewelry on your ring finger will spruce up your customized manicure. Pretty much everyone, at one point, has worn their accent nails on their ring finger. You can show off your ringless finger or you can show off that diamond wedding ring on your finger.

6. Stripes

The accent nail design can be created by yourself. The best way to showcase your creativity and fashion is with this accent nail design. This will look cute as an accent nail on the thumb finger. The thumb is rarely used as an accent nail, but I feel people who rock accents on this finger do it for themselves. When you type, write and even drive your thumbnail is facing you. Imagine it facing you with a creative stripe design on it. Fabulous.

7. Marble

This design will look very glamorous on a long stiletto long or even on a short squared one. Marble is one of the easiest creative nail accents to do. This design can be created in the comfort of your own home. You just need a bowl of water, your desired nail polishes, and a toothpick. To begin, paint the base of your nail and let it dry. You must let it dry completely. Then drop the nail polish in the bowl of water but let them drop on top of each other. When you have created the color you want, then grab your toothpick and swirl them together. Once the marble design is created dip your nail in the bowl of water and then let dry. See, it’s easy. What I like most about this design is that it fits every season. During the fall you can rock a deep maroon shade and have your accent nails marble.  The marbled design can be worn on any occasion, casual or formal.

8. Ombre

With the Ombre style, the colors can fade from light to dark or from dark to light. This design can be created at your home, but it will take time and patience. If you don’t get it perfect the first time, it’s okay. They are your accent nails and you are the boss of how they look. Or just skip all the hassle and go to the professionals. Fashion seems like its more enjoyable when you are the one that created the masterpiece for others to ooh and ahh over. I like that you can choose any 2 colors and can create this masterpiece. Though it may look best to choose 2 colors that complement each other. What’s even best about this design is that you can wear it on any length of nail or any shape of nails.

9. Matte

This design doesn’t have any of the shine like a typical manicure. Seeing that it’s less shiny and attention-grabbing, it stands out. This will make your accent nail anything but basic. Matte will make your accent nail look mature and sophisticated in any color you choose.

10. Flower

This design on all 10 nails is a bit too much. But having this floral design on your accent nails will be the right balance of cute and sweet, without the floral overload. Flowers can be seen in any season, summer you can rock daisy and sunflower with a bright background and during the winter you can have a floral design on a darker background of your nail.
