20 Fabulous Outline Nails Ideas That Are Totally Worth Raving About

From rainbow nails to chic white nails and now outline nails, our nail technicians keep getting more and more creative with our digits. The outline nail art is one of the nail trends we have been seeing a lot of in recent months and it is pacing up to become one of the biggest nail trends of 2022.

This nail art is pretty, simple, and classy and can be worn on both long and short nails. Generally, the design is achieved by tracing a contrasting nail polish color along the outer edges of already polished nails. Per the description, it requires two different nail polishes; a base color and another shade used for the outline.

In more unconventional takes, manicurists are spicing things up beyond the simple outer edges outline. There’s a case for glitters, crystals, and more than one “outline” on the nails. In addition, many are choosing to go with more colors than usual and the result is a vibrant play of colors perfect for summer and beyond. Should you be a minimalistic girl drawn to subtle marvels or a drama queen who loves bold designs, you will find that outline nails can work for you. Would you like some inspiration to add to your mood board? We’ve got you covered.
