Less is more when it comes to dressing your nails this season. Minimalist nail art is basically the equivalent of when you go to a contemporary art museum and walk into a white-walled room totally empty save for black lines on the floor and ask yourself in all seriousness.
Nail art can be kind of cheesy. It’s not that it doesn’t look good—okay fine, sometimes it straight up doesn’t look good. I’ve just never felt compelled to glue mini pearls and ribbons onto my nails.
So if you’re bored of your current one-shade mani, but are lazy, busy, or you simply think complicated nail art is tacky, get inspired by these minimalist nail art designs. We’ve rounded up our faves from Instagram, including some from the likes of the queen of legit cool nail art, Madeline Poole.
