In a world where gel manicures seem to reign supreme, you may have forgotten about their equally, if not more so, long-lasting cousin, acrylics. Acrylic manicures are renowned for their rock-solid durability and extra length, both of which allow for some pretty eye-catching nail art.
Not sure what you'd want besides a solid coat of color? Allow us to lend you a hand. Ahead you'll find 40 cool acrylic nail ideas that are sure to turn heads no matter the season or occasion. We have a funny feeling you'll find more than a few you'll want to keep tabs on for your bi-weekly manicures in the weeks and months to come.
Jelly Acrylic Nails
While these acrylics are longer than long, the idea remains the same: You simply can't go wrong with the jelly nail art trend. Whether you wear it in a coffin, square, almond, or squoval shape, you're sure to fall in love with the unique nail look.
Gold Foil Acrylic Nails
Black and white marble acrylics are made royal with tiny flecks of gold. Meanwhile, we're dreaming about all the ways we can incorporate this must-try nail look into our #OOTDs.
When recreating this look on your own, opt for gold flake appliqués (which stick to your nail polish and are set with top coat) instead of trying to hand-paint the details on your own.
