#1. Simple Lilac And White Fringe Designs
Creating your unique hippie-inspired nails should reflect who you are as a person. The greatest part about nail art is self-expression, so take advantage of that!
If you're not looking for a super intricate nail design, that's okay. There are plenty of bohemian hippie designs that are minimalistic while staying trendy and vibrant.
One of our favorites is a simple design on white polish. A soft color like lilac is able to compliment the white nicely while adding some much-needed personality.
The thing about hippie nails is that there is usually quite a bit of intricate lines and details involved. And if you're doing your nail art at home, it can seem a little daunting to freehand something so complex.
The Easiest Way To Get Bohemian Hippie Nails You'll Love
Luckily, you don't need to freehand anything. Here at Maniology, we created our iconic nail stamping kits, so it takes only a few seconds to get the nail designs of your dreams.
Maybe it sounds too good to be true, but we promise it's not.
For example, take our Fringe Forever nail stamping kit. The stamping plate has various bohemian designs to effortlessly bring your hippie vision to life!
The kit also comes with our smudge-free Top Coat, Monarch Dream purple stamping polish (perfect for this white and lilac duo look), the cube stamper, and a mini scraper card.
Wondering how it all works? We'll walk you through it.
How To Nail Stamp In Five Easy Steps
Nail stamping is as easy as it sounds. All you need to do is stamp the pattern of your choice on your nails. It's that simple!
Your Fringe Forever stamping kit will already come with the essentials, as we went over earlier.
Start by applying the polish color of your choice over your nail stamping plate. For this design in particular, use your Monarch Dream lilac polish for a beautiful lilac color!
Next, hold your mini scraper card at a 45-degree angle to the nail stamping plate. Gently but quickly swipe off any excess polish from the plate.
Now, grab your cube stamper. All you'll do is press the cube stamper over the design you just painted polish on. Then, pick up the image with a rolling motion.
With your design on your cube stamper, place the design over your nails like a stamp. Again, use a smooth, rolling motion to apply your design evenly.
Lastly, wait for your design to dry, and lock it in with the smudge-free Top Coat your kit comes with. Your nails will be left with a gorgeous design and a flawless finish to match!
#2. Pastels With A Bold Bohemian Design
Hippie nail designs usually involve plenty of creative freedom. Whether that means replicating a trippy pattern or mixing a few different colors, we're all for it.
Now that you've got Maniology's Fringe Forever nail stamping kit, the world is your oyster. You can make almost any design that comes into your mind!
Need some inspo? You can never go wrong with mixing colors to create a stunning hippie design.
For this design, find some pastel colors such as purple, pink, and blue for a cohesive look. This will serve as your base. Use colors like Maniology's Flashdance pastel salmon and our Droplet pearl blue nail stamping polishes.
Fashion a swirly base of colors to truly embrace your hippie side. Then, spice it up by adding designs from your Fringe Forever kit to welcome the hippie aesthetic. Black patterns will add some nice potent contrast to the pastels.
Feel free to change up the design as you see fit. After all, that's what nail art is all about!
#3. Bohemian Block French Tips
Everyone can get on board with a trippy, stylish set of hippie nails. What's not to love? Nail art lets you explore self-expression, and there's nothing more freeing than bohemian designs.
Sometimes, a great place to start in your nail art journey is with the classics. And there's nothing more classic than French tips. But to make it hippie, we'll give it a twist.
Instead of a standard French tip, change it up. For example, you can make block nails or the border squiggly for a trippy look.
Then, use your Fringe Forever kit to top off the look with bohemian designs. This will give your French tip look a new dimension and make your nail art more cohesive and satisfying.
To maintain the minimalist nature of French tips, opt for a calming color such as white. This will prevent your nails from becoming overwhelming and won’t take away from the hippie vibe.
These are only a few of our favorite styles that can be made with our Fringe Forever kit. But when it comes down to it, the possibilities are endless. So, see what you can do!
