Bring a little luck
and style to your manicure with a horseshoe nail art design. Whether you’re a horse lover or just looking to attract some good fortune with a pretty unique look. A pretty lowkey design you don’t see tooo often and a lot more flexible than you might think.
After looking through
thousands of horseshoe nails, I managed to narrow it down to my favorites. There’s a little something for everyone whether you want some subtle detailing, a horseshoe accent or you want something really overt.
We’re starting this collection with some simple and short light pink nails. The pink is beautifully combined with some rose gold that adds shine to the look.
If you prefer a simpler look, you can stick with your classic white nails. The best thing about an all-white look is that you can add in any design of your choice.
Black is also a great canvas to start with. It allows your design to shine! If you want to take it a step further, use some gold glitter in creating your details.
The cowgirl theme has been trending a lot these days and for good reason! It goes well with this cactus nail art and the colorway pulls it all together with this flirty style.
Nothing gets simpler than nails with a natural base. A cool combination for this luck motif with some dice nail art and a cute little wishbone.
We’re adding a bit of color to this collection with these blue and yellow details. The look gives more of a masculine feel which you can customize by adjusting the shades of the colors!
Blue, white, and red are classic color combinations. If you prefer more of a grounded look with your designs blending in with each other, go for this nail design.
Black and white is a classic for a reason! You can easily achieve a clean and preppy look with the color even when you’re bringing in some cute little designs. The horseshoe design goes well with this cow nail design which has been a whole trend in itself.
This is definitely one of my favorite designs so far in this collection! This set really does a great job of playing around with a cowboy theme. The designs are really well made and the theme was well utilized.
These nails give off more of a classy and expensive look. It’s mostly due to the gold lining on the French tips and the gold details. The black also provides a nice shine too!
We’re making things a bit more fun and colorful! This set brings me back to the early 2010s when this color combination was in style but I think we should bring it back!
Things are starting to feel a bit magical around here! The combination of unicorn nails and the horseshoe is a cool idea. It does raise an important question… do unicorns have horse shoes? Unicorn shoes?
This set does a great job at expanding the cowboy theme! It’s definitely more of a historical piece of when cowboys were scarier and wanted posters to be well-used.
Gold and white is a really great combination for those who want shine but still want their nails to look light! This definitely gives off a cleaner finish than a black and gold combo.
This brown and blue color combination reminds me so much of the beach. The shine on the blue nails also gives off the feel of reflected light on seawater.
If you love a dainty-looking set, I’d recommend a two-tone pink ombré. Add in your horseshoe and you’ve got the cutest good luck charm!
Nude pink is perfect for those who want a really low-key nail set. Adding in a few designs will help you achieve a cute yet minimalistic look.
This set reminds me so much of the circus! I’m really in awe of how well the artist combined so many colors. Freehand-painted nails will always put me in awe.
If you want a glamorous nail set that’s still very wearable, make sure to add in some glitter accent nails. They’re less difficult to wear as they don’t really have any additional toppers.
These nails remind me so much of the carnelian crystal because of the orange and brown marbled accent nails! It’s like putting two lucky items together.
Why stick with one good luck charm when you can have two? Mixing in a clover leaf with a horseshoe is a fun way to ring in some luck!
This set is everything magical all in one! I especially love the cool 3D designs. There are so many different kinds of shimmers so you’ll never get enough!
If you want something bold and bright, I’d recommend these scarlet nails. They’re less intimidating than a bright orange but bolder than a red.
Nude, pink, and gold are a classic combo. If you’re having trouble achieving a classy look, try to stick with this combination.
We’ve got another set mixing in some clover leaves and horseshoes! What’s even better is that the gold glitter reminds me of gold, which is the possible fruition of all the luck you’re manifesting!
Care for another horseshoe and clover leaf combination? This one’s got an extra pop of color which gives off that warm and comfy feel.
It’s time to go crazy with colors with these neon nails! If you’re tired of black, white, and nude colors, switch up your nails with something light and bright!
I really love toned-down looks like this gray nail set. They look really good on your nails, especially if you have a lighter skin tone!
If you’re looking to try out some red nails, I’d recommend going for a darker shade! It’ll be less overwhelming plus it might match your skin tone better.
This nail set has got quite a unique color combination! Adding in some gray is still a great way to add some shadows to your look.
One of my favorite French tip looks is white tips with some glitter. They instantly look classy! So if you’re trying to make those horseshoe symbols elegant, add in some glitter and you’re good to go!
This nail set is both adorable and magical! I especially love the dreamy feel that the chrome nails mixed with the cloud designs give off. The horseshoe nail art is a great accent and the silver against glitter contrasts really well with the rest of the colorway.
This set is a mix of classy and edgy. A deep red with glitter achieves such a sultry effect while the spike wire effect gives off a punk look.
Here’s another color combo that reminds me of the early 2000s. If you want to maximize your short nails, choosing bolder colors should do the trick.
I really love white French tips because they really make any nail set look classy no matter what design you decide to add on!
If you’re wondering if color can help you achieve a classy look, this nail set shows that you can! Just make sure to add in some sparkle and you’re good to go!
I rarely see full sparkle nail sets but when I do they always look really good! If you’re in the mood for something more extravagant, try out a deep-colored glitter set. They’re a lot more wearable and they look luxurious!
Here’s another cowboy-themed nail set that’s got some glitter and color to it! I especially love the elevated French tip look with two different sections.
Maximalism is in and nothing gets grander than these oddly shaped nails. I love it when artists really go all-out with their nail designs because they always look so cool!
A subtle way to add more color is through your French tips. You don’t have to stick to a single color! You can include a bunch of different designs as well
This bold shade of pink is definitely an early 2000s classic. It’s so lively and bright so even if you don’t have a lot of designs on top, you’ll still stand out!
Here’s a full red nail set for those who want something bold. The nude nail accent is a great addition to make the nails more wearable.
If the weather’s starting to get cold and the atmosphere is starting to fill with joy, it’s time to get this nail set! It’s perfect in time for the holidays!
We’ve got another red nail set that’s mixed in with some nude. I really like the use of the silver toppers as it’s a lot less intimidating. This is a good entry set for those who are new to bold-colored nails!
Here’s another really straightforward nail set. You can go with a uniform design like this one if you don’t want to have to worry too much about your nail design.
We’re ending this nail collection with something cute and preppy! Have a little bit of fun with these short and cute pink glitter nails!
