Minimal nail art: the proposals for a simple and glam manicure

Minimal nail art can give a really elegant and sophisticated touch to the manicure. Look at our selection and get inspired

If you want an elegant and original manicure, choose one minimal style, simple but impactful.

Minimal manicures

Geometries, reverse French, and colored dots applied or drawn on the nails are the fundamental elements of a simple and cool nail art at the same time.

How to make a simple nail art?

First choose the nail polish that acts as a base. Transparent, light pink, white or nude are the most popular choices for an essential nail look.

Then decide how to decorate your nails. The geometries are very glam: colored lines and dots, on the bezel or on the tip of the nail, finally micro stickers to be applied as desired. A little precision and calm is all it takes to create a perfect manicure. Help yourself with the dotters, the fine tip brushes specific for nail art.

Just add some silver glitter on a clear polish to get this sparkling nail effect.
Choose a milky white base and apply two and three sequins all over the nail. The surprise effect is guaranteed.

If you like minimal geometry, draw a line to cover half of the bezel. The effect is even more scratchy if there is a contrast between the polish used to color the nail and the one used to draw the line.
The dots are drawn on the nails as if they were a score.

Double geometry: a gold polish highlights the bezel and the tip of the nails.

Bright, chic and minimal, this manicure is characterized by a base between pink and white over which very thin white lines have been traced with the help of a brush.
