Looking for a fun, flirty nail design that’ll make your friends green with envy? Look no further than the classic cherry nails! This easy-to-do style is perfect for any occasion and can be dressed up or down to match your outfit.
It’s such a versatile style you can take one of these design ideas for yourself or twist it to fit your own unique style. I’ve tried to cover a range of different variations to help you find something that speaks to you.
Starting with some vivid cherry acrylic nails these coffins are vivid, playful and I really like the dripping style. Just don’t blame me if you start chewing your nails after adding these sweet-looking lollypops.
I’m so into this cool blue cherry nail art. The detail and lighting on the cherries are just so impressive and I don’t know why but it works so well on this cloud nail design.
These vivid pink transparent cherry nail designs would be fantastic by themselves but the stars and the fact the cherries form these little hearts are just… I want them. I need these in my life.
It’s not a manicure if it doesn’t have at least one 🍒 in it. So how about some solid red nails and then some with a couple of little mini cherries?
This nail art is so cute I want to bite it! I like the fruit style design, the pink fluffy french tips and (of course) the little cherries.
Can you believe this nail design was done by hand within just a couple of hours?
Medium French Tip with a minimalist cherry nail art style. Just a few of them on the index finger add a little taste of playful fun to some otherwise office-ready acrylics.
I love this swirly design even without the cherries. The combination of nude nails and swirling white both horizontal and vertical would be unique enough by itself. If you swapped that for a more vivid colorway you could have something really cute here.
These nails are so cute! I love how bright the color is and that it’s a simple design. Bright pink french tips are fantastic by themselves but a little cherry is… nail art on top?
I’m not saying I want to eat the cherry off your nails, but it is pretty tempting.
Sometimes more really is better. I like the multiple smaller ones over the single large design.
But the longer design does work as well. These long acrylics have a hidden weapon – pierced nails! The little charm hanging from the pinky is just too cute.
The cherries on that thumb are actually 3D! I love this idea.
The black background make the red on these nails really stand out.
I think this color is perfect for summer (or anytime you’re just in a summer mood). It’s bright but not too bold.
Almond nails with white french tips and a few cherry stamps.
French nails with cherry nail art.
I’m not sure what I love more about this photo of my nails… the color or the sweet little cherry on top! 🍒🌹
There’s that trippy drip effect again. With the larger designs you don’t need to show the entire thing, it’s still obvious what this is.
“I’m not sure if you can tell, but I have little cherries on my nails.”
I want nails like this when I grow up. The stems in little knots just looks fantastic.
Cherry bomb french tips. Here we have a whole range from pierced gold loops to little charms. A really glam take on the design.
Or how about a more playful version?
The stems right on the v tip on these frenchies.
Nude cherry nails. Just a tiny bit of playful fun on otherwise normal nails.
A little bit of shine here. Small red rhinestones used rather than nail polish – fantastic idea. I don’t know how we haven’t seen that already.
Speaking of rhinestones… how about this set? I love the colorway and the different use of the stones on each finger. Fantastic effect and the little charm is a nice touch.
This gel design is maybe a little rough in places but you can see what it’s going for.
The little charms on these long acrylic coffin nails would be nice enough but the little plant style on the nails themselves really works for me.
Hand-painted minimalist take.
Bordering on some royal blue Ombre nails here. The little bit of snow on top give this a more winter vibe on the ring finger and I absolutely love it.
Tapered square nails with a little bit of glitter never hurt anyone.
This shade is becoming more and more trendy. It looks like there is a nail polish base underneath the little rhinestones on this design.
A combination of both big and small designs. I love the little sparkle effect on the pinky.
Reflective cherries 🍒 ✨ Short, cute and incredibly unique.
You can never go wrong with cherry acrylic nails🍒. A few red rhinestones and a little green line and you have instant cute.
This design will work with any shade or color. You can use this to suit your look.
I really like this nail artist’s style for these hand-painted cherry nails. Having a little variation between fingers and the pinky with this deep pink french tip is great.
Back to basics with these nude nails and a few small cherries.
Transparent nails normally hide details but with these simple lines, it can still work.
