Bold, baddie nails are one of the most trendy nail designs of 2023. This aesthetic is all about daring designs, bright colors, and glamorous accents.

Most often, baddie nails are stiletto, coffin, or almond-shaped and can be rather long. But that doesn't mean you can't be a baddie with any shape or style of your choosing!

The Power Of Baddie Nails

Your nails give you the opportunity to show off your unique sense of style. Baddie nails utilize intricate designs and bold shades that pave the way for your personality to take hold.

That way, you can truly show the world a bit more about who you are inside!

The right baddie nail design can help you add a bit of attention-grabbing drama to your look in a simple yet effective way. The key to stunning and glamorous baddie nails lies in executing flawless designs, and this is only possible with the right tools!

How To Create Baddie Nails Right At Home

Many people have the misconception that baddie nails can only be achieved by taking a trip to the nail salon.

However, it's easy to avoid that uncomfortable visit altogether and just make your own baddie nails right at home!

Using A Nail Stamping Kit

With a nail stamping kit, you'll be able to effortlessly recreate any nail design of your choice in a handful of steps. Maniology's nail stampers allow you to enjoy unrestrained artistic freedom by giving you the inspiration and tools needed to bring your creative visions to life.

With hundreds of designs to choose from, it only takes five steps to "stamp" your favorite onto your nails for a flawless finish. It's truly that simple!

Simple Yet Bold Baddie Nails

Sometimes, less is more. Instead of overloading your nails with rhinestones and other bling, opt for a classic baddie nail design.

Simple French tip nails are perfect for embodying baddie vibes, as they are both stunning and sophisticated. Plus, if you go for longer stiletto nails (as is often popular for baddie acrylic nails), they'll look that much better!

To recreate clean and precise French tips, use Maniology's Classique: Pardon My French nail stamping kit in order to get those to-die-for articulate tips!

#2. Animal print

A tell-tale marker of baddie nails is the combination of distinctive patterns and other unique designs. And one trend that's taken off when it comes to nail art is cow print designs.

Animal prints have always been rather popular, but it's hard to find the right one that will be both eye-catching and unique without being tacky.

But with some simplistic black-and-white cow prints adorning your fingertips, it'll be easy to display your unique edge and style!

Recreating The Look

With Maniology's Animal Instinct nail stamping plate, you'll be able to effortlessly recreate twelve different designs, from cow to snake animal print designs. It's time to take a walk on the wild side!

Baddie nails are all about making a bold and daring statement. Stunning baddie nails give you a chance to steal the show while helping you feel more self-confident in your own style.

Standard baddie nails almost always come with a jewel or two. They're all about the details!

Glitter accents and rhinestones are incredibly popular and are a fantastic choice if you're looking to create some gorgeous nails.

Plus, embellished nails are easy to customize. If you want to just dip your toe in the water, you can opt for one or two smaller gems. But if you want to make a splash, you can go all out and bedazzle your entire fingernail canvas!

It's Time To Sparkle!

Applying rhinestones to your nails can be one of the trickier things to do. However, if you want to take a shortcut, you can use some holographic glitter to get the same sparkle effect.

Maniology's Crushed holographic shard glitter is the perfect way to get glittery and reflective nails without the hassle of gluing individual gems. Plus, they last longer and give you more artistic freedom!

#4. Baby Pink

Though baddie nails are often about being bold and making a statement, they also can give you a much-needed chance to bask in your own femininity!

Bold colors often create the base of baddie nails, but anything pink also goes. A soft baby pink can make your manicure appear gentler and calmer without sacrificing the baddie feel.

Plus, pink is immensely popular nowadays and will help you maintain a trendy and sporty look.

The Perfect Pink For Your Manicure

The thing about pink is that there are so many shades to choose from, making it easy to find the color that best fits your personality and style.

For example, if you're looking to show off your chic and sporty side, Maniology's Tropicana: Pitaya bright pink cream stamping polish will do the trick. But if you want to enjoy a more gentle and sophisticated color, opt for the Bubble Gum Swirl sheer pink nail polish instead!

#5. Silver Chrome

Accents are a fundamental part of baddie nail designs. And chrome is one of the best ways to showcase a bold, beautiful look.

A Simpler Way To Embrace The Bling

Chrome nails were one of the biggest winter nail trends, but they also have a place in spring and summer. If you're not a fan of bright and flashy glitter accents, chrome is a more toned-down way to exude a chic and trendy look.

Feel free to also spruce up your nails with extra gems or decorations to bring your look to the next level!

Use Maniolog's Hella Holo fine holographic nail powder in order to recreate some magical and reflective chrome nail designs.

Wrapping Up

The right baddie nails can truly help you live out your unique and edgy side. It's time to take on the world!
