Some cow classics. Here’s a combination of white and cow print. We have a full solid white nail and also a full solid cow design nail. My personal favorite is the nice square-shaped cow-themed tips!

No better way of making your cow-inspired nails a bit more luxe than adding a bite of gold glitter lumps.

A cute way to pull off some cow nails is to pair them with some nice bright lavender nails. The cow design is a combination of black and white so mixing it with any other color would probably work!

Here’s a black and white-themed nail set. These nails are perfect if you don’t really want to stick to one specific design for all your nails and want to incorporate a few different styles together.

Here’s a cute variation using some pinks, browns, and whites. Here’s a more subtle color palette if you don’t want something as intense as black and white.

I personally like the brown and white cow designs more than the traditional black and white. They’re a lot more wearable and a little less intimidating as well!

These are adorable! I love the stark contrast between the monotone black and white with the very bright taffy pink. Black and pink nails create a nice contrast normally but couple that with the playfulness of the cow-print and they’re just so incredibly cute.

Sharp almond nails are always so classy! Try out an interesting take on patterned French tips. Add a very clean line in the middle that matches the shade of your base color and you’ll notice how it transforms your look.

Try taking your cow-themed nails to the next level by adding in some small pops of color. Here we have bright pink and green half-moons and a nice vibrant blue eye design.

This is a very classy way to wear some cow prints on your nails. Use a nice nude pink shade as your base color and add a light pink instead of a white for your cow design base. Top it off with a matte topcoat and you’ve successfully made cow print classy!

Who said cows couldn’t come with some cute colors? Here’s a colorful take on the print. The tip to achieving this look is to choose a base color that’s a bit lighter than your cow print color. A monotone theme is actually quite cute!

Here’s another nice nude palette. I really like how they incorporated some melted gold on the top as it helps with embellishing the look.

So here’s a classic. This look predominantly has a nice jet black glossy set but uses the cow print on the two accent nails. The accent nails are also topped off with a nice gloss, of course.

At first glance, this design looks as if its base is a translucent grayish color but it’s actually a chrome sheen. I especially love the very subtle addition of pink.

I love how the cow print was made in this set. It seems a lot more abstract instead of realistic and it works perfectly well.

Instead of choosing just one shade for your cow print, choose multiple complementary colors instead.

Adding a bit of color to your otherwise plain and simple design. In this set, the accent nail has a clear base that’s topped off with a nice lavender cow print. Normally you’d think that brown and lavender wouldn’t work, but I’m actually surprised it does!

Blue and browns go perfectly well with each other. I think that these are pretty cute fall nails!

What a fun way to use cow prints! This design has some solid sheen colors that complement the cow prints. I also love the use of gold and silver foil in separating the solids with the design. It makes the nails look a lot more 3D as well.

Here’s a bit of a more understated cow print design. Instead of directly painting out some cow prints onto the nails, the artist just used them on the edges of the nails. It makes everything look a lot more clean and wearable!

Pair your cow prints with some nice barbie pink gels!

How cute! We have an almond-shaped nail with cow print French tips using the brown and white color combination. We then have a pink glitter outline to complete the look. The use of browns instead of blacks makes the nail set look a lot more cohesive and put together.

Here’s a bit of a bolder look. The artist did a great job of incorporating more than one animal print together in one set. I also love the use of red as it goes really well with black and white.

These baby pink nails are just delightful! The jelly sheer pink base perfectly matches the pink print.

Here’s another way to incorporate more color into this print. Add an outline to the cow French tips using the color of your choice.

This is another pink cow print design but this time we have a nice little cow design on it!

Who knew that animal prints could be so minimalistic? Instead of using the traditional and realistic print, the artist opted to make it a lot more simple and abstract. I also love the gradient shades used here. If you’re too afraid of this design but have thought of trying it out, maybe start with this?

This is a look that takes me back to the early 2000s when neon green was such a huge trend!

Here’s a nice beautiful matte neon orange design. I like how the artist used a very natural matte base because I think that adding color would have made them look a lot more intimidating.

Here’s a more innovative take on your typical cow print design. In this set we have your classic cow print in black and white matte, then we have a variation that uses a nude pink base and is topped off with black or white.

Some simple strawberry cows! The pink flesh base is topped with white tips that are filled with different pink designs. I’m a huge fan of the cute cows.

Here’s another variation of the brown cow print design. Instead of going with a white base, go for a lighter brown base instead!

Another clean way of utilizing cow prints onto your nails.

We’ve seen pink, we’ve seen brown, but have you seen green? This is solid proof that cow prints can be played around with just about any color!

Here’s a little bit of blue cuteness! A nice snazzy mix of just about every cute design you might like to get on your nails and I think the pretty light blue pattern really works.

Here are some mad fun colors.

Look at these beautiful extended takes on the traditional French tip. Instead of using one color, add a solid distinguished gradient of some colors you’d like. I would go for some nice nude browns as this set has! Possibly the most interesting take on cow nail art and while it’s a little less on the cute side and the darker tones make it a little more serious.

A clean beautiful set. I absolutely love how almond nails look and the half cow print, half glossy sheer pink design is just adorable! If you’re looking to wear your cow prints even in more professional spaces, maybe give this design a try!

Some strawberry cow milk on your fingertips! This is taking the entire cute pink cow concept to another level. I love the use of the vibrant glitter pink topped with some cute strawberries.

We already know that pink and brown versions of the cow print look cute together as solids, but why not try mixing up a few French tip versions in there too?

Here we’ve got some solid Fuschia glitter pink nails that are complemented by matte nude pink base nails topped off with a cow print and a cow design.

These coffee brown nails are to die for! This is another way to use this cow print and make it a lot less intimidating. Try to use colors that you enjoy or that give off a classier look.

A very tiny twist on the classic design. Have an accent nail that’s half curvy print and half solid. Instead of making painting them all with a design, make sure that the majority of the nails are in one solid base color instead.

Some more monochrome pink!

Here’s a spring take on the cow print!
