Nail Jewel Designs

Adding jewels to your nails = major nail moment. Seriously though, we can’t get enough of nail jewels. They can completely transform a subtle, neutral nail color and turn it into something incredibly chic glam. Of course, you can also go all out and use them to create the ultimate over the top manicure. Whatever your personal style, you can use nail jewels to enhance your nails. This year it’s really all about the embellishments on nails. We’ve found some really fun nail jewel designs we think you’re going to fall in love with so start scrolling!

1Jeweled Neutral

Aren’t these jeweled nails so chic?! This is such a gorgeous example of how you can add just a few nail jewels to a neutral nail to completely change the aesthetic. We really love that they kept the nail jewel design minimal with 3 small rhinestone jewels placed in a line onto just one accent nail.

2Grey Edged with Jewels

Coffin shaped nails are a perfect match with nail jewels. Matte grey polish is anything but basic with the gold nail jewels added in edgy designs. Add even more glam to the design with gold glitter polish. This is such a fun design!

3Sky Blue Glam

Light blue nails go glam! Solid pale blue nail color is a stunning base shade for an over the top rhinestone design. Combining different color and shape jewels, as shown, really adds to the shape and look of this diagonal line of stones.

4White + Blue Jewel

Add a pop of color to your white nails by rotating white polish with light blue polish. This combination is a major nail win in our eyes – perfect for the spring and summer! Add some cohesiveness to the rotating colors with nail jewels applied to each nail.

5Matte Brown Tone Shine

We don’t know about you but we absolutely love matte nail polish designs. Adding a matte finish to any nail color gives it a whole different look. Create gorgeous dimension and texture to neutral matte nails with iridescent nail jewels! The juxtaposition we all didn’t know we’d love so much.

Do you have short nails? This nail jewel design is perfect for you! Fortunately, no matter what length your nails are you can find a way to add nail jewels for a fun design. We’re in love with this reverse French manicure type of look done with various nail jewels.

7Major Jewel Moment

Talk about a major nail moment! Right? Gold chrome polish paired with intricate nail jewels are the elements that add so much glam to this design. Because they’re such statements, keeping the nails neutral and matte are the perfect pairing.

8Cobalt Jewels

Add a POP of color and glam to coffin shaped nails. Cobalt blue is a color we’ve seen quite a bit lately and we’re here for it because, well…hello it’s a gorgeous color! Iridescent and blue nail jewels are a great compliment to white and cobalt blue nail lacquer.

9Iridescent Jewel Designs

Iridescent realness! Pink and purple nail colors are often thought of as feminine or girly, the way the colors have been utilized in this nail design really changes that aesthetic. The stiletto shape combined with nail jewels and a touch of negative space adds an edgy modern feel.

10Neutral Nails with a Pop

For all our nude nail color loving ladies, these nails are a stylish way to add a pop of color to your go-to nude polish. We love how subtle the nail lacquer base is on these nails. Applying pink and green nail jewels to a couple of nails in unique designs gives nude polish new life.

11Delicate Jewel Nails

How pretty are these delicately designed nails? Nude polish adds that soft, delicate feel to nail jewels. Gluing small rhinestones to the center, base of each nail keeps that dainty feel consistent.

Ombre colors + nail jewels + glitter = jaw dropping manicure. What can we say about these nail?! The combination of black, nude and mermaid colors are unexpected but work so well. Applying nail jewels throughout the design add even more depth.

16Iridescent Stones with Edge

These nails are giving us all the edgy feels. Matte black polish will always (in our opinion) be the go-to nail color for an edgy design. Applying iridescent rhinestones in fun designs to a couple of nails adds the perfect juxtaposition to the dark edge.

17Matte Nude Goes Glam

If matte black isn’t really your style, you can always go for something lighter like matte nude polish. Similar to the juxtaposition matte black and rhinestones had in the previous picture, matte nude gives the same type of vibe but with a lighter feel.

18Golden Jewels Meets Olive Green
