11. Nude Nails with Subtle Dots

We love this next nail idea and it is another one of our favorites. The nails are a glossy nude shade and each one features a super small dot.

You can create small dots with a toothpick and you can choose any color for them too.

12. Classic American Mani

There are different types of nails with white tips. For example, you have the French mani which usually has soft pink nails with a striking white tip. There is another version though called the American manicure. This version is more natural looking because it usually features a nude base with an off white and not as striking tip. These nails show how to wear it in style. You can check out our article on American manicures if you like this design.
