This unique style is as fun to create as it is to wear. Whether you want to try to create the look yourself or you want some inspiration to show at your next manicure, we have something for you here. After
hours of scrolling through balloon nail designs (and loving every minute) we’ve collected our favorites with a little bit of everything to suit any look.
Love is in the air with these balloon hearts. Why not add them to your list of nails to do for next year’s Valentine’s Day? Or, there’s actually no need to wait. You can try them now!
Whoa, what a wonderful base color indeed. This set is a combination of stamping and freehand. While the balloons were handpainted, the topcoat was stamped to give the background a full glossy surface.
These Gossip Girl XOXO balloons are made out of multi-colored metallic foils. It may not be too obvious in this photo, but they are also sprinkled with pink and purple glitters.
Carl and Ellie look so good on those nails. I wish they had Russell, Kevin, and Dug on the other nails, too. Up is one of my favorite Pixar movies, so I am definitely adding this design to my list. I might be biased though, I love Disney nail art.
Another Up-inspired nail, except that it only has the house’s balloons. I like how adorable the sky and those cloud nail designs look even though the set is actually a very simple nail art.
It is still too early to say that we need to say goodbye to 2022 already. You still have a lot of months left to enjoy these nails anytime you want. In my opinion, however, they’d probably be best worn in December.
Wait, we just saw those clouds in the earlier nail art, right? But I still picked it because the balloons now have a different design. I think you might like these nails if you also like Minnie Mouse.
Have you ever ridden a hot air balloon? I have and it was one hell of an amazing ride! It was a bit foreboding at first, but everything went from being scary to heavenly once I got used to the feeling.
Cutie balloons and confetti nails that you can wear if you are attending a friend’s birthday party. You can ask your other friends to wear them as well so all of you can get cheesy!
“Baby Girl” balloon letters on your nails to have a unique way of celebrating a gender-reveal party. You can just change the “girl” to “boy” if the news says otherwise.
Well, you might like it simple and neat so I included this one. Or you are probably a minimalist who doesn’t like messy things. Don’t you find those 3D nail art balloon hearts kind of special?
Ok, I know that they may be too plain for some of us. I still listed them here, however, because I think those colors can make you fall in love as well. Not to mention that those handpainted ballons are clearly nailing it as an accent nail.
Red and black combo lovers, come out! This set can be another addition to your Valentine’s Day special nail art list. They are handpainted, too, and perfect for those with short and natural nails.
Have you noticed that I am picking very simple nail arts? That is because even if they are too modest, they still look beautiful and classy. Like this one, for instance! An otherwise natural nail design instantly becomes a little more fun with a single balloon accent nail.
While those handpainted flowers and balloons look so amazing, I can’t help but fall in love with the blue gradient on this nail art. I would definitely vote for it as the one with the best gradients on this list.
I’d like to personally dedicate this ravishing entry to all our brides-to-be. This may or may not be the first time you have visited this site, but I’d like to sincerely congratulate you on your wedding. Best wishes, darling.
Don’t get too heartbroken if you are loving those balloons and you know you can’t paint them. Those are stamps, my friend. You can order them and apply them with any color base that will suit them well.
Another 2022-inspired nail art. These were made during the New Year, but who said you can’t wear them on an ordinary day?! You can even repeat them all year round and once a month, for all they care.
I really can’t find the relation between alligator scales and balloons. But, so what? These nails are amazing. Would you like to try them, too?
Balloons and decors for Christmas, y’all. I like the green and red polish base the artist used on these nails. I also like the Christmas tree and balloon designs. I have to admit, though, that my favorite is the set of gold ornaments.
Don’t you find that shimmery peach color very plain yet dashing? The star on this nail art, though, is that sparkling purple balloon with bright and colorful flakes.
Ooh, here’s something for the guys and girls who like their nails fancy, playful, and lively. The set only has two kinds of design and I can’t actually choose which one is better. I really like them both!
Is it your birthday? Happy birthday! Treat yourself with a lovable birthday gift through this nail art. Go to your local salon and ask your nail artist to do them just for you. Or do them in DIY mode to make your day more special!
Honestly, I had a hard time including this set even if they are spooky and gorgeous. I don’t like clowns, especially when they look like IT. But for everyone who likes creepy things and horror films, you might want to try this set.
Birthday nails for those who want a more mature approach. The earlier one was kind of girly, but this one seems to be perfect for adults. I especially love the clinking glasses on her pointing finger.
This is a more colorful version of the hot air balloon nail art I mentioned above. The balloons are stamps although the sky in blue to sky blue gradient, as well as the clouds, are handpainted.
Balloon nail art with a touch of unicorn style. This has a matte version (and you know how much I love matte polish), but I think this glossy version is a lot better. I am in love with those colorful flakes, by the way.
Did someone say they want actual, super colorful nails? Here you go, dearest. Your confetti in multiple colors and your balloons in various shades! Love it!
Ah, were you requesting something colorful but not too bright like the previously mentioned one? I heard you clear so here’s a design for some inspiration. Boost your creativity, girl.
Maybe you’re not the type who likes it so glamorous. So, this one’s for you. All-natural nails in sky and balloon style. I might actually try this design once I get tired of all the fabulous ones.
Can you feel some Disney vibes on this set? Mickie Mouse design balloons will never go out of style. But what I really like about this set is its bright blue color base.
I guess this movie will always come to mind whenever we hear someone say balloons, no? I am obsessed with the 3D balloons and the handpainted Kevin that the artist applied to this set.
Freehand nail art, y’all. I like this shade of green and I love how the color of the balloons complimented it.
I have a bias on this nail art because I absolutely love brown. I feel like throwing a brown-themed party. The design is quite simple, but I definitely would recommend it to those who like clean-looking nails.
Ah, another one of my favorite combos… silver, black, and white. Balloons need not be colorful to look stunning, you know. Just looking at these nails can prove that claim.
Are you a blue lover? If so, you can try this one out. The balloons are similar to the previous entry, and you can find them online if you want to order.
Oh, hello there, cute panda! Don’t you think he looks a bit sad? No matter. I bet he’s gonna be happy once you have decided to add this nail art design to your list.
If you can’t choose between colored and black/white, why not have them both? These nails are proof that a combination of colored items with a humble black and white design can still look sensational.
Classic gold balloons look so fine and elegant here. You may not visibly notice but the base is a purple iridescent color (like on the thumb and pinky finger). There is also confetti in white stamps to make it grander.
Let the good times roll with these balloon-themed nails that are perfect for a Boogie dancing outfit. Are they making you feel some Retro vibes, too?
Always remember that even if life may be tough at times, you can always look up above and see nothing but blue skies. Stay positive. Rest if you must, but never quit. Go get them, tiger!
Something pink and fancy for our birthday girl? I’d like to recommend this to those who like pink and girly stuff. I like the fact that the artist only use shades of pink, but it still came out bright and exciting.
I like how the artist described this heart balloon… “ the balloon that got away.” All right, Katy Perry just started singing in my mind. You can go ahead and play “The One that Got Away” while creating these nails on DIY mode.
I don’t know what to feel about this nail art. Will I be happy for the cactus cause he’s finally getting a hug? Or will I be sad for the balloon because she might just meet the one that will destroy her? Wow, that was deep.
Ah, quite simple yet again. These balloons are perfect for those with short nails. That doesn’t mean, nonetheless, that those with long ones can’t imitate this design.
Another one for the blue lovers out there. I am enjoying the combination of different blue shades in this set. Everything just looks so divine.
Adorable, little animals celebrate life at its finest. Yes, they want to celebrate your birthday with you. Go get these cat nail art designs on your birthday and let these cuties love you.
We saw these stamps already. I never knew, though, that they’d look good on purple as well.
3D balloons for those who like their nails grand and marvelous. They look like candies, though. Can I eat them instead?
No matter how many times it runs away, love will always find a way back to you. Wow! Did you feel the love in that? Make your nails feel loved, too, by getting this nail art.
Rainbow colors can surely make you feel wonderful and magical. I love the contrast it gives to the black polish on her ring fingernail.
This is a challenge entry and the challenge was to “add a splash of color against the black/grey background.” I couldn’t agree more that those hot air balloons in rainbow colors nailed the whole set.
Sunsets nail designs (and sunsets themselves) are always beautiful no matter where you go. Be it in real life or in paintings, you will always feel the warmth in them. But here’s what I admire most in this set of nails: they are handpainted!
