The key to this is that the lines don't need to be perfect! A slightly blurred plaid looks very cool, and extra points for metallics. Just lay a base coat on and start criss-crossing thick and thin lines.

These off-to-the-side polka dots are clean and incredibly easy!

4. Some lovely jewels:

All you need is a coat of your favorite nail polish, a pair of tweezers, and some jewels from your local craft store. No need to even create shapes — mosaics are beautiful as is!

5. Some tiny stripes:

All you need to do is apply a base coat and lightly brush each nail with a thin accent color. Again, no need to worry about the lines being perfect — these ones aren't, and they still look amazing!

8. A twist on a half moon:

This is an elegant way to include some nail art over your favorite base. All you have to do is paint straight across the top of your nail and paint a line that dips downwards. Beautiful!
