Red on your nails is a color that, will always make your nails stand out and look well cared for. It is elegant and you can use it to give a more fun touch to your look. The classic technique is to completely paint your nail in red, and, as you know, the classics will never go out of style.
Long and square red nails
If you want to risk a little more, but prefer to stick with the classic technique, you can try and play with the shape of your nails. Whether natural or not, long and square nails are an interesting option.
Red nails on the feet
There is nothing better than painting your toenails red. While you can combine them with your hands, it is also a way to beautify another part of your body for when you wear your favorite heels or summer sandals.
Red nails to complete your outfit

Painting your nails red and combining them with your accessories is a great way to do it. You will see that the dress you want to wear will never be a basic piece. The trick is in the details.
Red nails with triangles and diamonds
For those who prefer to decorate their nails in a more subtle way, we have a solution. Paint your nail and leave only a small part without color, in this case in the form of a triangle, and then add a diamond or stone of your choice.
Red nails with golden dots
This is a great trend that you can easily apply with the tip of the brush of your enamel, you can use the color you like the most, but I recommend this shade of gold that contrasts with red and gives a sophisticated look.
Red nails that match your look
Sometimes more is better, so if you like the color red and your skin color complements it, opt for a total red look, from your clothes, lips and of course nails. Add just a little touch of another color so your outfit is not boring as well as our suggestion, with a beautiful brown hat. But don’t forget that whenever you add a color, you must combine it with other colors
Pointy red nails
This is a well-known trend in our times. Punctuated nails can be seen in most famous actresses and personalities. Continue with a classic line, painting only the nails red, and let the shape do the rest.
Wine red nails
For those who like red, but do not feel comfortable with such a bright color, we have the proposal of wine red nails. These give a more sophisticated touch to your look.
Red nails with tartan print
Creativity has no limits, so you can go from a simple red color to an elaborate tartan print, inspired by the fabrics that were used in the Scottish skirts.
Red nails with rings
An interesting way to embellish your hands is to paint your nails red, but adding rings of different shapes, you give an interesting touch to your hand. There are also midi ring options, which you can use in the middle of your finger.
Bright red-orange nails
For those more daring and who love color, we propose this bright red with a touch of orange, this color will not pass unnoticed, and also, it reminds us of the neon trend.
Extra bright red nails
We can all agree that an enamel should have a beautiful glossy finish. This gives light to your nails and make you see how well cared you have them. Add to your normal enamel a transparent one that is shiny and not only gives you greater beauty, but also protects them so that the color does not go so fast.
Nails with red highlights
This is your ideal choice for the night, you can choose a base color, in this case white, and then apply some red spark to complement your party outfit.

Nails with fruit print
Another fun way to apply stamping on your nails is with fruits. Just take the tip of the brush of your enamel and apply red dots, then complete with green and brown to form your apple. You can also apply it on the entire nail or even try other fruits like the strawberry.

In this style, you can find how to give a different touch to your nails combining different styles. You can apply on one of them a base of red color and then on apply a glaze with bright, on the other apply a chart of kisses and even use a matte style to contrast with the radiant of other nails.
Red and silver nails
Another of our favorite styles is to paint your red nails, but applying one of them another color. In this case, we show you how shiny silver is a must have, which you can even combine with your favorite silver jewelry.
Red nails with heart shape
This is a technique for those who have a sweeter side but want to take advantage of their beautiful pointed nails to try different styles. You only have to apply with your brush a little color as if you were to make a point on one side of the nail and then continue the lines down. Add a sophisticated touch with small diamonds.
Red nails with flowers
These are perfect to add a feminine touch to your look, they remind us of that beautiful spring full of flowers. Add small branches to look like trees full of flowers.
Red nails with contrast color
Using a single color can sometimes be monotonous, so we suggest to use more than one to contrast and add more fun. In this case it is a clear blue triangle shape that you can make with a little transparent tape, then you have left to dry the red base and if you want you can add a white line also to complete.
Geometric red nails: stripes and dots
Playing with shapes and colors is an incredible idea when painting your nails. In this case we suggest to choose two colors, red and white, where you paint opposite way with a small point at the base of the nail. You can paint another with fun red stripes and finally use a textured enamel.
