The latest nail art designs Beauty Insider has seen on the red carpet and Hollywood celebrities are so cute, you are going to want it ASAP. If you have not tried nail art yet, now is the time. We often think nail accessories look great on others but are not sure how it will look on us. Here are five nail paint designs you can try, from beginner to nail art expert.
Beginner: Nude and a little shine
Get your inspiration from the recent Met Gala. The theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” and many celebrities wore it even down to their nails. Try Ashley Graham’s long nude nails with gold Swarovskis in the shape of the cross. Celebrity manicurist Mar y Sol Inzerillo used Revlon.
If you are not keen on swarovskis or crystals, Emilia Clarke’s Met Gala manicure was similar. Her manicurist Alicia Torello painted small glittered crosses and paired it with pale pink nail lacquer.

Intermediate: Negative Space galore
Here are two great negative space looks. The first is a minimalist design that is reminiscent of Korean and Japanese minimalist styles. Keep your nails short for this look by Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador Madeline Pool.

Another negative space nail art look you can try involves a just bit more colour. This nail art by Miss Pop Nails uses black and white but you can use any color family you like. Just make sure to leave negative space when you request for the graphic design to achieve a similar effect.
Intermediate: Mismatched nails
Try different nail art designs on each hand! Why stop at just getting a different color on your ring finger? These subtle designs are great for mismatched nail art. The trick is to use the exact same nail polishes and to keep the design consistent per hand. Tiny details are also key. Look at this design by Olive and June.
Expert: All out nail art
So you have been doing nail art for a while now and are done with the entry level designs? Go for a deep shade plus nail accessories, ala Blake Lively at the Met Gala. New York City celebrity nail stylist Elle gave her this look using metallic maroon nail polish and mismatched intricate nail accents.
If the above is still too subtle for you, match your nails to your dress on your next big occasion. Ariana Grande matched the Sistine Chapel design of her Vera Wang gown to her nails with the help of Natalie Minerva.
