If you are like me you like to have your nails looking cute. While on Pinterest I found some cute nail designs that are ideal for moms. If you are good at doing designs, you can do the designs at home yourself or if you’re more like me, and wouldn’t be able to attempt to do it yourself, you can always show photos to your nail tech during your next salon visit.
This fun nail design features 4 red nails with smoky flames on the tips. One nail is white with a red heart and banner that simply says, “Mom”. For this design, gel nail polish works best and gives the end product a glass-like effect.
Feel free to change the colors of the design to fit your outfits or favorite colors. A step-by-step guide is available to help you achieve this fantastic design.
Baby on Board Theme
In preparation for Mother’s Day, if you are a mom-to-be, show it off with “baby on board” themed nails. You will simply paint 2 nails pink, 2 light blue and one white nail. The solid colored nails should have white polka dots for contrast. On the white nail, create one pink and one blue footprint.
Simple Polka Dots
Polka dots match almost any outfit, and the design is simple. Pick your favorite color as the base, and contrast the polka dots with a lighter or darker color, depending on your base coat. You can leave one nail a different color, such as white, to create a simple heart with the word “Mom” painted on.
Retro flower patterns are perfect for moms. It shows that you have sophistication, but are fun and easy going at the same time. Pick a pastel base color, like a light pink or peach tone to start with. Use a black paint pen to create an outline for your chunky flowers, and include a few simple designs around the flowers too. Select other pastel colors for the petals and center of the flower.
You can also switch the design up a little and use more bold colors for the petals to bring more personality and pop to the design.
Mother’s Day Themed
A simple Mother’s Day theme may take a few tries to get it the way you want it, but practice makes perfect. Start with a pink base and add purple and white embellishments. You can also use nail art like rhinestones, flowers and nail pearls for dimension. Gel coat the top to help the design last longer. Glitter pens help this design pop as well. Consider adding some sparkle.
These cute, simple and fun nail designs for moms can be worn year-round, but are also ideal for Mother’s Day and baby showers. Get some help from a friend or daughter if you are not ambidextrous enough to complete matching designs on both hands, this definitely takes some practice. Keep a few Q-tips and some nail polish remover handy in case you need to fix some mistakes.
