    Help!!! I Need Unique Nail Design Ideas!

    I have fake nails (i keep them pretty short) that i get filled every two weeks. I don't typically like having one solid plain color on my nails so My nail tech and I are constantly searching for new ideas!

    I have found that I tend to prefer the designs that are some variation of a french manicure.

    Right now I have Black tips with White zebra Stripes and It looks awesome (so much better than traditional zebra)! Before that we did red allover with yellow half circles at the tip with wavy lines so it looked like suns! We've done all the different variations of having a thin colored strip over the edge of the Manicure tip line.

    I'm at a dead end now and Can't think of Anything!

    Please make suggestions. I have a high powered career so I like them to still look classy but have kinda come to be known for having extravagant nails!!!

    You could do green with pink tips and have little black "seeds" on them so it will look like a watermelon

    What about a beige base with thin black lines or using white or black pieces of lace and making like a lingerie manicure? It's something I'd totally do, but my job doesn't give me the freedom to grow my nails out like I use to.

    Ohh! I love this thread. I get my nails done every 3-4 weeks, because I keep them short. My nail lady does an awesome job at keeping them stay strong on my nails and they look natural! Anyhow, I too, have been trying to find new unique nail designs. I have red glitter tips with yellow and white flowers, green leaves and dark purple dots in between. If any of you, have any ideas please share! Thank You!

    I have natural nails but they look fake (when they're painted anyway). Right now i'm loving the bright colour and black tips look - right now i have hot pink with black tips....i love it ^__^ I also like rainbow nails hehe (basically i paint each nail a colour of the rainbow, they look like m&m's lol.

    I have a free hand sculpted acrylics every 2 weeks I get them filled, I normally just tell my nail chick what color and let her go at it, she is amazing at designs.
    My coral glitter base with zebra stripes.
    my Teal marble tips (achived by teal nail polish and a drop of white and with a tooth pick tip gently swirl them around)
