Nails are the new black. And by nails, I mean diamonds. Yes, you read that right – diamond nails are all the rage right now. The glam of glam. Whether you’re attending a formal event or just trying to spruce up your everyday look, adding a touch of sparkle to your nails can add some subtle style or demand attention.
There are so many ways to make this look work for you and I’ve tried to include a wide range of design ideas to help you find something.
Starting with some simple style, these diamond french tips are just shiny enough to add some understated style.
“ My nails are so hard, I could cut diamonds.” -Me.
I love the white and gold colorway and a few little stones really set this style off. Understated compared to some of the nails on this list but quite possibly my favorite.
Diamond nails are for the girl who takes no sh*t from anyone. I love the ring finger defining nail in this set.
Or keep it simple like this gel set. Solid glitter gives it that diamond look.
3XL Tapered Square tips with diagonal diamonds to separate the matte white tip. This is going to stand out as a unique look.
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but they don’t hold a candle to these nails. 💎🔥
You can get a little diamond style with a light hint of glitter and I really like this single french tip idea.
Diamond nail designs will work with any colorway. Bright vivid colors will give you that fun look but a solid black this week just says style.
A mix of glittery speckles and glittery v french tips.
Oh, now the design here is just stunning. A different diamond design on each finger. This almost made the snake nails list because of the index finger diamond snake but they’re just too glam to not include here.
I’m a pushover for matte white backgrounds with glitter but that single diamond on the middle finger just wins me over. You could do so many variations with this as well.
Simple yet elegant. The stones around the cuticle rather than the tip seems to be a trend lately.
Red Diamond short gel nails with a single line of stones on the middle finger. Fun enough for a night out, subtle enough for the office.
This nail design is a diamond in the rough. Thank you. Thank you. I’ll be here all week.
Another take on the diganal style but this time with a solid colorway.
Sometimes less is more and these tiny diamond stars just look so cute!
A single stone in the middle of this cool firework design flanked but purple glitter. Tell me that isn’t unique.
I like the shade of these Ombre nails by themselves. I would have thought the blue diamonds on the ring finger would be a bit much but it works.
Matte purple with diamonds in this darker design. A lot of these designs use a thinner line of stones but the thicker style works against the darker color.
A more winter style on these festive nails. They look fantastic but that white and red colorway has some definite Christmas vibes even without the tree behind it. I have to be honest though, I’d love this set anytime during the year.
Alright, this could also technically be another festive design but the little diamond snowflake is just too cute.
Warning: This nail set might be so attractive that hordes of people chase after you. I might be one of them. Sometimes less is more and this fairly minimalist set is proof of that.
This nail design was done for an engagement photo. The glam diamonds to match the one on the finger!
Or how about this for a fun colorway? Vibrant and fun it’s sure to stand out.
I’m always surprised we don’t see more marble polish like this.
Wow. I don’t even know where to begin with this set. Large coffin nails with that fantastic red outline would be stylish enough but those deep red diamonds really pull it all together.
Another variation on the white and gold colorway. This time with some nude nail v french tips as well.
This set is really digging the asymmetry and look at the cute little daisy on the index finger!
Boujee new years nails with these gel extensions. If you like these, we have an entire list of Louis Vuitton nail designs.
Simple and sweet. I love the contrast of the tiny little diamonds and the large ring.
Alright, I admit I’m seeing a trend in the snowflake nail designs but it just suits the diamond look so well.
There’s something about the dark black background that really makes the diamonds pop. I’m not normally a fan of darker nails personally but I can’t argue with the end result here.
Longer coffin nails with red diamonds.
Some cute minimalist line nail art contrasts with some solid glitter to create this unique design.
Be like a Diamond – precious & rare.
Nude 79 acrylics with white and glitter design.
A mix of white and Ombre nails with a little diamond added for good measure. I like the combination of the single stone on the ring finger and the v tip on the middle finger.
These press-ons are just so cute! You could do this without the larger stone if you wanted to keep it simple.
Long, square and something extra. ✨
A darker red with some unique diamond designs.
Silver and gold work well with this set.
