Life is all about being happy and if a dash of nail color can elevate this feeling a bit, it's so worth it. Perhaps one of the most happiest and exciting days in life is prom. The preparations go out for weeks in advance, not only in terms of the theme, but also what one would do to look utterly gorgeous and steal all the limelight.
21 Gorgeous Nail Art Ideas for Prom
If you're unsure of what nail design you would want to go with, on this prom, the following ideas will definitely help you decide a way.
One coat of mid-tone pink nude shade with white dots on all fingernails except the ring fingernail. Take a bow-shaped accent in a darker shade of pink and stick it on the nail of the ring finger. You're ready!
Be the Star of the Night
To feel like the star of the night, there's nothing that will complement your look better than this. The merger of a transparent coat with black nail color and silver glittery paint just replicates the beauty of a starry night. These colors will also go well with any attire.
Notice the random black patches that are adorned with white circles and accents that are not only colorful but also remind you of various geometric shapes. This one is for the smart, stylish, and pretty girl who loves such shapes and patterns.
The extra hearts placed on the fingers are just for the visual effect. Just keep the accessorizing within the nails if you don't want to come off as a mushy, lovestruck, or desperate-for-love kinda girl. It's not a turn on.
The way the bow is made on the ring finger gives it a caviar-nail-art look. And the crystals make the nails look as if they are studded with pretty little diamonds!
A combination of yellow and different shades of green is used to adorn each fingernail distinctively from the other. Flower-shaped stick-ons give a delicate touch to the design. The ring finger is done using the caviar technique.
Even if that's not the case, we assure you that you can never go wrong with an animal print. Instead of the standard leopard print colors―yellow, brown, black―you can add your own choice of colors to the background, and then draw the patterns over them. Looks amazingly hot, doesn't it?
It is a bird of a different league, and this nail art will take you to a different league as well. Apart from the colors―deep blue, green, gold―use glitter paints and fine paint brushes to draw feathery outlines to accentuate the design.
The vibrant orange-gold-silver glitters in the background are colors of the summer, while the beautifully drawn snowflakes pattern on each nail depict the winter cold. In a nutshell, this design depicts the coexistence of the two sides to your look or persona―hot and cool!
If you have the time to visit a nail salon, take your dress along and get a matching nail art done, probably matching patterns of the nail art with your dress. It will look so cool and everyone will appreciate you for the time and effort you've put in to look special on this extremely special occasion.
However, if you want to take a step further, then why not add a border of polka dots on the rim? On the nail of the ring finger, draw circles with bold outlines. You're done.
Use shades of white, silver, blue, and gold to give your nails a winter wonderland kinda look. Snowflakes are an indispensable part of this theme. You can either draw them using a striper pen, or a thin brush. You can also opt for snowflake-shaped sticker strips to adorn your nails with.
Simple Stripes with a Crystal Touch!
This design is best when you don't want to go overboard with your nail art, or if your dress is quite catchy in terms of work and patterns on it. Just do a French manicure and make multiple V-shaped stripes on the nails with two (or three) colors. Stick a rhinestone sticker on the tip of the 'V' and let the nail paint dry. Simple, easy, and beautiful!
