10 Nude Nail Designs for Girls Who like to Keep It Simple ...

If you're a plain jane like me, you probably opt for a solid nail color whenever you're painting your nails or getting a professional manicure.

Solid colors are the best because you can make them work with so much. And neutrals? They're a plain jane's favorite because there's no need to worry about matching them to your outfit as they go with everything. Everything!

But even for us simple ladies, sometimes a solid, neutral nail just doesn't do it. You gotta spice things up every once in a while, am I right? Next time you're looking to spice up your typical nude mani, give one of these ideas a try.

Add a Dot

Looking to keep things pretty simple, but still want to try something new?

One nude nail idea is to add a metallic dot to each nail as an accent. Add it towards either the top or bottom of your nail, but don't forget to make sure that it's centered!


This understated look manages to be both effortless and elegant, making it perfect for everyday wear or special occasions. Choose a gold or silver dot for a classic touch, or opt for a rose gold or copper for something a little different. Not only is this design quick and easy to apply, it's also a chic way to add a hint of sparkle without overwhelming your understated aesthetic. Remember, the key is subtlety—a single, small dot on a backdrop of nude polish speaks volumes.


Try a Bright Tip

This one is kind of similar to a French manicure in that the focus is on the tip of the nail. The twist here, though, is that the tip isn't that classic, boring (if you ask me) white. It's fluorescent pink. Or bright blue. Or tangerine orange. Or whatever color your heart desires. Begin with a neutral base (like beige) and paint the tips in a bright, fun hue.


This Bright Tip design is a great way to add some fun to your nails without having to go all out. It's a simple design that starts with a neutral base color, like beige or light grey, and then the tips are painted in a bright, fun hue like fluorescent pink, bright blue or tangerine orange. This design is perfect for those who want to keep it simple but still make a statement. It's also great for those who want to experiment with different colors and see how they look on their nails.


Go for Gold

Gold accents look great on just about any nail color, but they're especially striking on a neutral nail. If you want to go for the gold and make a striking statement, start with a beige or taupe base and add a bold, gold stripe down the center of each nail.

Add some sterling silver or gold rings with gemstones to really take things over the top.


Coffee Marble Swirl

When you think about marble nails, you probably think about bright, fun hues, right?

Have you ever thought about trying a neutral marble look? The next time you're marveling over some marbled nails, try a neutral take on this fun nail design.

Who doesn't love a little latte-inspired nail art? It'll look great next to your Starbucks, that's for sure.


Neutral doesn't have to mean boring, and the Coffee Marble Swirl is the perfect testament to that. With a blend of creamy beiges and rich browns swirled together, you can mimic the enticing layers of your favorite morning beverage right on your fingertips. It's sophisticated enough for the office and cozy enough for a weekend brunch. Plus, this versatile design pairs beautifully with almost any outfit, ensuring you're always in style, sans the caffeine jitters. Don't be afraid to jazz it up further with a hint of gold or silver foil for an extra shot of elegance!


Cuticle Crazy

Spice up a plain, nude nail by adding some glitter. Not on your nails themselves, though. Instead, you'll apply a glittery polish (we're partial to gold or silver) to the edges of your nails – tracing your cuticles – for a look that's bold and daring, but not trying too hard.


The cuticle crazy look is perfect for those who want to add a bit of sparkle to their nails without going over the top. All you need to do is apply a glittery polish to the edges of your nails, tracing the cuticles. Silver or gold are the most popular colors, but you can experiment with any color you like. This look is bold and daring, but still subtle enough for everyday wear. It's also easy to achieve and can be done in minutes. Plus, it's a great way to add a touch of glamour to your look without too much effort.


It's All about the Accent Nail

If you're afraid of commitment (or just don't want to be stuck with the same design on each nail for days), an accent nail could be just up your alley.

Choose whichever nail you like and add some sparkly polish, polka dots, stripes, bling, or whatever else your heart desires over your favorite neutral base coat.


Try a Fine Line

Another simple, easy way to spice up a neutral nail bed is to top it off with a fine gold line placed horizontally towards the top of each nail.

It's a deceptively simple, yet it adds a subtle, unexpected pop to an otherwise plain nail.


This fine gold line can be achieved by using a thin brush and a gold nail polish, or by using a nail art pen. This look is perfect for any occasion and can be dressed up or down depending on the event. It's also an easy and quick way to update your look without having to go for an entire new nail design. Best of all, it's an affordable way to add a subtle, yet stylish touch to your nails.


All That Glitters is Gold

This one, though simple as can be, is still worth mentioning.

It starts with...you guessed it, your favorite nude nail color as a base. And to top it off? Some chunky, glittery gold polish. On a nude nail, it sparks. Or sparkles, should I say.


Upside-down French Manicure

Not feeling a classic French manicure or bright tips, like we mentioned earlier? Well, why not try going upside-down?

This one's exactly what it sounds like: instead of painting your tips, you paint the space just above your cuticles on your nails. Try a bold color or a glitter polish for a little something different.


Eye like You

If you fancy yourself as someone with a funky fashion sense, you're going to love this one.

Add a funky flair to your favorite neutral by topping them off with an eye design. Think about it – you have the perfect background for a funky design like this. On a nude manicure, all eyes will be on you. Literally!
