18 Black Girl Nail Designs You Need in Your Life

As I was browsing through nail designs, I realized that there was a shortage in black girl nail designs. Now of course, any design can work for any skin tone. But what I’m referring to is the lack of nail design photos that feature brown skin.

So, I thought that it would be nice to curate a nail design collection that specifically features brown and dark skin.

1. Pastel Nails

2. Hunter Green Nails

French tip nails don’t have to be white. Step outside of the box and use your favorite color for your nail tips. You can also go with a different nail shape too.

There’s nothing like a simple set of brown acrylic nails. Because there are so many different shades of brown, you can find the shade that goes amazingly with your skin tone or undertones.

17. Zebra Print Tips

Instead of using a solid color for your nail tips, go with a pattern. You can do swirls, animal print, and more. Great creative with your fun new look.

18. White and Clear Nails

I love how some of these nails are using a clear nail. This look would actually be great using gel nail extensions. Gel nail extensions is a process that involves hard gel on your natural nail and cured with UV light.

I hope you were inspired by these beautiful nail designs for black women. From simple to bold, there’s an awesome design for everyone.
