15 minimalist nail art designs we’re planning for our next salon visit

15 minimalist nail art designs we’re planning for our next salon visit

Nail art can be minimalist too, you know. Sick of the same struggle at the salon when choosing what to have on your nails? Looking to try something a little different instead the same rotation of red – wine – nude – black?

We trawled through some of our favourite nail Instagrams for inspiration. There are two Instagram nail accounts in the world – the glitzy, lengthy nail pages and the pared back. There are two many nail styles in the world to remain monogamous to just one. We flirt between nail identities, both long, neon and sparkly and short and simple. But if you can’t make long nails last or run and hide from nail art, bookmark these minimalist nail art Instagrams for your next visit. Or,  if you’re really skilled, try your hand at them yourself.

Here’s fifteen nail Instagrams we’ve screenshot and saved to take on our next visit to the salon.
