Nail art can sometimes get extremely intricate. And, while we adore a good French manicure, it's not the only basic nail idea out there.
If you're a beginner, consider press-ons for a quick and easy look, but if you're working with real polish,
we've done the research for you on simple yet eye-catching mani ideas. Here are 25 basic nail designs we love for 2023,
whether you want to DIY them or bring them into your business.Tired of the conventional French manicure? Try a reverse French with bold, contrasting polish colors.
Even on otherwise nude nails, the small design pops. For a more unusual look, try using black polish, as shown here.
You can create a two-tone look with any two colors, but we love this muted variation from NYC nail shop Sundays.
It appears fancy, but this colored effect is deceptively simple: Dip your nail in a tiny dish of water containing a few droplets of polish, then wipe your cuticles with polish remover.
Florals can be as simple or elaborate as you wish. Consider this pattern, which was constructed with basic dots.
