#23 Glitter ombre nails don’t just have to be done by changing colors on one nail. It can be done progressively over all the nails. Like here light blue and sapphire blue are used for the transition in different nails. Addition of silver all glitter nails accents the nail art further.

#25 White glitter nails are gorgeous, elegant, and modest, and can make an amazing part of any occasion or style statement. And a simple way to upgrade the usual white nails is to add some stripes of glitter around. We love how each one is oriented the same, which totally adds synchronicity to the nail art.
#26 French nails can make you party-ready too! You just have to add some glitter to the mix. This long nail design starts with shaped nails so make sure that’s done first. Do the classic French nails on all nails except the index and pinky finger. On those two nails though, use substantially-sized glitter particles and finish off with a high-shine coat.

#29 Rose gold has become a favorite of women. It’s romantic, elegant, and oozes a luxurious look. Even in glitter nails, it’s a preferred color and we just can’t deny the appeal. The small glitter particles are packed on the rose nails, making them look like it’s dripping with the glitter. So cute!
#30 Red glitter nails are ideal for V-Day or Christmas as well. However, these red glitter nails aren’t done using glitter on the red color, as is the usual way. Instead, the glitter is used on the other two nails in a very minimalist manner.
#31 Galaxy nails are absolutely gorgeous but you can add a twist to them by adding white nail polish to the mix. That sort of line precision though is only to be trusted to be done by a professional. So, we’d advise you to recreate the look via a trusted nail artist to maintain the appeal and beauty of the nail design.
#32 It’s wonderful to see how two shades of nail paint can complement so well. You will have to try and mix different shades in the vanity and we’re sure you can find a pleasing combination. While the artist has made the single shades gloss, you can make them matte as well. They’d look gorgeous both ways.
#33 A simple, DIY glitter golden nails idea. Get a nude shade with a hint of pink and apply a coat of gold foil polish on top of it. Top off with gloss nail paint and you’re done!
#34 Love this glitter nail design idea so much! All nude glitter nails are done the usual way except for a touch of blue glitter on the bottom that seamlessly blends into the rest of the polish.

#37 Just another gorgeous DIY nail idea to do at home! Have someone artistic to do those little hearts though! Because they really are the heart of this nail design.
#38 All glitter nails in golden just never fail to impress. They’re easily doable at home as well. Either use a good nail polish that can create this look with two coats or first use a base coat in golden color and then proceed with the glitter for a polished nail design.
#39 Simple, sophisticated, and neat. The soft pink color is subtly bought to life with a golden clear polish with loosely dispersed glitter particles. Ideal for a romantic date, a wedding you have to attend, or even an important party. This glitter nail design is truly versatile.
#40 White nail polish is a versatile color in nail paint and can be paired with many different colors. Here, that color is blue. While the majority of nails are covered in matte style, one is covered in complete glitter and the other one has an ombre glitter effect, which looked so gorgeous we had to include a different picture of it.
#41 Your usual French nails can get an oomph of glitter for that extra allure. You don’t necessarily need to have super long nails to rock this design though. Medium-sized nails would do as well. Similarly, small nails with just a hint of glitter around will look gorgeous too.
#42 Those leaves say one thing and one thing only? Spring Nails! Yes, for those looking to sport glitter nails during springtime while also honoring the time of the season, here’s your perfect nail idea to Pin.
#43 Dripping with golden shade on the tips followed by loosely dispersed glitter on the rest of the nail bed, this all-similar nail design has a uniqueness and beauty hard to take eyes off!
#44 Ah! The pleasing combination of pink and light blue. These two are often used as Princess outfit colors and doesn’t this nail design represent the same ethereal nature of Princesses? A truly artistic design and that ombre effect on some nails add an interesting touch.
#45 This one has only subtle glitter in the mix, only at the ends of two nails. We were so impressed with the stunning emerald color though that not including this picture on this list was no longer an option. The accents on the tips are done beautifully and make the lovely color worth it.
#46 The foil print is a good alternative to glitter nail design, despite having the same ethereal sparkly nature. The clear pink nails look elegant as a base as the artist draws on top using foil print. The golden leaves are reminiscent of autumn and these can look great in the fall season.
#47 Sometimes you can add an interesting touch to the usual nails by varying just one nail with a different design. Here, that design is differentiated using marble art. Although, if you’re trying this at home, you can just leave the nails as it is and they’d still look as attractive.
#48 Instead of doing the usual French nails in white, you can add a decorative attribute by making the tips in different colors. In this case, that will be pink and red.
#49 Galaxy nails are a work of art and we’d recommend an expert artist to trust for recreating this glitter nail design idea. But until that happens, save it on your phone or Pinterest for reference.
#50 Again, an easily doable DIY glitter nail art. Start with buffing and preparing your nails for the polish. Apply a thin layer of pink nail paint. You can also apply another layer. Top off with a glitter nail coat and finish off with a glossy coat, but that’s an optional step though!
#51 Amp up your white gloss nails with a dramatic glitter on the sides of just two nails. These short glitter nails are a great idea for any event or any time of the year.
#52 Yet another way to accentuate your usual nude nails is to add some glitter to the tips and make your modest nail design a bit glamorous.
#53 While the ring finger is completely dipped in glitter, the other nails are kept in gloss pink with little hearts on them. This glitter nail design could make for an ideal pick when you’re just engaged and want to show your ring finger extra love whilst picking a design that’s romantic and alluring.
#54 This next nail design is glitter is done in soft pastel colors with substantially-sized glitter particles enhancing the appeal in the right way. The geometric small divisions on some nails are a good balance between dramatic and modest. Love that it looks charming without looking overdone.
#55 Glitter nail designs stand out most when they’re against bare-looking nail beds. These nude pink nails are enhanced with a white line on the side and a silver thicker one on the other. White spots all over the polish further amps up the entire design.
#56 Fine glitter is gorgeous, but look at what chunky glitter particles can do with their allure! The chunky glitter makes for the backdrop for one nail while the pink finger is done in glitter in an ombre effect. The ring and index finger are in ivory with a tinge of pink. And the former is also bedecked with a little heart on the end for a whimsical nail design.
#57 A cute heart really does make an appearance often in nail designs. Their romantic and ethereal nature sure makes them a good addition though. These white glitter nails are, however, enhanced by a silver nail as well. It’s a nice everyday nail design to get.
#58 With the nail shape being short and square, these mauve-pink nails can be easily done at home. Make sure you have the glitter coat in almost the same shade though and you’ll be good to go!
#59 Alternating with chunky glitter particles in the same shade is yet another way to curate an appealing glitter nail design.
#60 A pink and purple ombre on the index and ring finger, and a full purple glitter on the middle finger, followed by an artistic nail art on the pinky finger makes this nail art a riveting one! Long nails do give a lot of space for professionals to experiment and if you don’t mind them, then go for them without any hesitation. A creative nail artist will do wonders with long nails and you won’t stop staring at them.
#61 Clear glitter nails, but make them extra long and extra glossy. It’s impressive how the little details can make a difference. The white tips really bring out the gripping nail color.
#62 Another fall nail design idea with emerald green being at the center stage of the fascinating art. A foil accent on one nail does go well with the glitter, and you shouldn’t be skeptical of accommodating both in the art.
#63 Gorgeous green in another shade making its way into this list once again and beautifully too!
#64 Pastel nails are captivating, but you need to pick the right combination of colors for an arresting look. Here, these two colors are light pink and cobalt blue and look how beautifully they blend in the ombre glitter nail done on the thumb. Take some ideas online or use your own aesthetic creativity when you blend two shades.
#65 Tell me you’re not in love with these nails and we won’t believe you! These classic nude nails were given a twist with neat glitter lines on the tips and it’s just such a simple idea oozing with elegance and sophistication. Also, a great pick for wedding glitter nails. Don’t you think?
#66 Yes, those are little clouds on the middle finger surrounded by small drops and studs. We’re sometimes left stunned by the creativity of nail artists. They really outdo themselves with every design and it’s spellbinding to see the results.
#67 Inspired by the sea life, this is another work of art by the amazing nail artists who’re leaving us stunned with their creativity. The fish fins on the middle finger and sea life on the thumb are exquisite and make the overall design just spectacular.
#68 You don’t have to go all gloss or matte when it comes to nails. You can even combine them. Here, the white nails are in gloss, while the pink one where the half is covered in glitter is matte. And it looks utterly ravishing, doesn’t it?

#74 All nude glitter nail designs are gorgeous, modest, and sophisticated. A good pick when you’re looking for a simplistic design for your wedding or for an everyday look.
#75 If a modern-day Disney princess got a manicure, this would probably be it. The glistening colors look modern and classy while still being playful.
#76 What’s the point of spending hours on splendid nail art when you don’t even have a picture to show it off! Now, this is an easy DIY nail art to recreate, but it takes time to buff and shape the nails, wait for the layer beneath to dry so you can apply the layer above, carefully placing the studs. The result is wonderful though and worth documenting.
