Why should I choose Acrylic Nails?
One of the main advantages of using Acrylic Nails Designs over forms of nail art is the variety of colors and designs that can accommodate even the fussiest of fashionistas.
What makes this great is that acrylic nails don’t just have to be for special occasions. You can easily wear a set of acrylic nails for casual occasions on a summers day. Or even match a classic design with an elegant outfit for a formal evening on the town.
Do you bite your nails out of habit? Acrylic Nails can help put a stop to this habit since the texture of the nails isn’t appealing to chew (and they are almost impossible to chew threw)!
Do you find it hard to grow your nails? Acrylic nails may be the perfect solution to your nail woes! Simply choose any set of acrylic nails designs to the desired length and within a quick visit to your local salon – you have beautiful extended nails to flash around town!
Our TOP 50 Acrylic Nails Designs (in no particular order)
Now to the main feature – our collection of our Top 50 Acrylic Nails Designs to spark some inspiration for your next visit to the salon. Note that we haven’t rated each design from highest to lowest simply because everyone has different tastes and requirements.

Pretty in Pink
Although some may classify these as over the top or too out there for their taste – hot pink acrylic nails designs are more common than you would think. Also, even though they are only one tone and color, they are much more versatile than one would think. Instead of matching the color to your outfit, use the hot pink nails as a statement piece in your ensemble. Wear a simple outfit and let the brilliance of these simple nails do their thing and shine!

With our focus on the hands it is easy to forget about those little piggies down the bottom. Be exciting and mix and match the combination between nail art on the feet and hands.
Especially effective in the summer with your open-toe slip on shoes.
Many people consider gems or studs do not belong in the nail art industry. And we agree when the design is not done tastefully!
But check out these acrylic nails where the gems are incorporated in a minimalistic way that accents the colors and design (rather than detracts).
We personally love love love this color. It screams look at me and with the subtle nuances of the glitter and unobtrusive gems you cannot go wrong.
We will definitely be including this one in our nail art rotation going forward.
Note the difference in the sheen and matte nails as well.
The lines in this design reminds us of a classic building in NYC! Those edges and parallel lines take us back to the intricate lines you would see on the details of a exlcusive building.

Pastels always win
You cannot really go wrong with pastel colors. They go with everything and due to their very nature, they are not obtrusive or in your face.

The color combination makes it easy to work with and the white is great for low maintenance and a clean look.
