Lace nail art combines classic and elegant patterns with vibrant colors to create sleek, sophisticated but still flirty designs. Adding a personal touch to
any style of nail design and versatile enough to work with any outfit, I’m completely in love. Lace has been around for centuries but this timeless look has been a recent trend in nail art. I’m here for it.
We went through
thousands of these feminine and statement-making designs to share our favorites. They’re all fantastic looking but there’s a little bit of everything so you’re sure to find something to suit you.
Lace-ing up my nails with some lace nail designs! 💅🏼
We are starting this collection with some pink nails that are almond-shaped. They’re designed with these gorgeous white flower lace and some pretty gems.
If you’re looking for a bolder, more sleek design, then you’re going to want to try this out. We’ve got these long stiletto nails. Some are painted with plain black and some are painted with a purple base and topped with some black lace detailing.
I love this nail set. It’s quite bold and sultry, and it stands out a lot more because of its clear base. My favorite has to be the stitched design which reminds me of the back of a corset.
Check out this pretty and light design. We’ve got these pink and blue ombré tips topped with some cloud and moon designs. The lace serves as a nice final touch.
I find that black lace on top of pink nails makes the lace design pop more. I also like the ripped paper effect on the edges of the tips.
How classy are these nails? We’ve got these milky white nails with a silver lining on the moons of the nail. I also love how there seems to be a thin lace veil on top of the accent nail.
It’s amazing how realistic these lace designs are. I also appreciate the gray sparkly nail, which adds a brighter touch to this set.
Here’s another set that’s a bit fancier. We’ve got these fine lace detailing, which is paired with cute pink and blue polish.
This nail set looks different from the rest because it’s a lot bigger and also has a color aside from white and black.
The shade used in this nail set is clean and effortlessly classy without being too bright. I also like the simple leaf-like lace detailing on the accent nail.
These red nails look so bold in comparison to the other nail sets. We’ve got black lace patterns paired with subtle white flower patterns.
This nail set is for those who prefer monochromatic nail looks. This nail set perfectly mixes together silver glitter with matte black. I also like how the lace detailing is topped on the black translucent nail.
We’ve got a classy nail set here with a pretty minimal design. The pink nails are topped with a really thin layer of glitter, and the accent nail is this pretty white lace design.
The detailing on these nails is to die for! I love how they decided to add the designs to the tips instead of the full nail to make it seem less overwhelming. Black nail designs with diamonds give this fantastic luxury feel.
Here’s another gorgeous black nail set. I love how lace can easily upgrade a look and make it look a lot more sophisticated.
Here are some pink preppy nails which have pink and white designs. I love this entire color palette because it keeps the set looking light and fresh.
Here’s a classy nail set you could wear to a formal event, such as a wedding or a formal birthday party. I love the pretty champagne tips paired with the lace-like flower designs.
These nails are so beautiful, and they somewhat look like flower toppers on a wedding cake. I like how this design focused on the flowers without the surrounding thin.
These nails steer away from the classy lace and gear more towards bright and bold lace designs. I like how the crisscross pattern instantly changes this entire look.
Red and lace are such a classic pair. This red shade is quite bright but is greatly complemented by the black lace pattern.
The white detailing on this set is a bit larger. That way, you can see all the little details in this set.
I love this set because of the gorgeous rose gold detailing in the middle. I also like how there’s a tip variation of the lace design along with a full lace nail.
These nails are so beautiful. They’ve got these gorgeous large prints on the tip of the nails instead of full solid color.
Black lace really produces a much bolder look than white lace does. Just compare the difference between these plain pink nails from the ones with the lace design.
These nude grayish-brown nails are also a good base for some black lace designs because they show off all the little detailing.
Here’s a full white nail design that’s got a nice frosted finish. I love how the lace flowers look beside the white glitter ombré nails.
Here’s an interesting design! We’ve got these red French tips with accent nails topped with a dotted lace and a small flower on the side. It’s very simple yet definitely dresses up a look quite well.
Here are a couple of floral lace designs on top of this pretty purple-pink shade. I really like this color combination which seems to be popular back in the days.
Now, this is quite the unique transition. This nail set goes from a milky white, and you can clearly see the little faded effect before it turns into full black lace tips. The gem detailing serves as a nice little touch.
Now, this is a nail set that I truly love. The muted green shade gives such a calm feeling, and I also love the beautiful lace design, which makes this look so classy.

It’s quite adorable to see lace patterns on top of bolder and brighter looks. Here are some pink nails with floral moons and tips.
Here’s another classy take on lace. We’ve got this light pink background that’s topped with some full lace nails. Definitely a look for any formal occasion.
I keep on forgetting how pretty gray and pink are together, especially when you’re aiming for a classier set. I like how the white lace detailing brightens the gray nails a lot.
These nails are pretty cool. I love how it seems as if there are some round lace cutouts placed on top of the tips of the nails.
Here’s another sultry look with a touch of some red boldness. I love how they added these gold gems to make them look a lot more special.
Now, this is definitely an ode to pretty lace nails. I love how they added two different lace designs on top of each other.
Here’s a white version of the black bold lace design we saw earlier. This one definitely seems a lot less intimidating but is bold all the same.
If you don’t want your black nails to be too plain, adding in a nice little lace print can greatly change the look of your design.
Oh, how I love these fancy-looking lace tips. I love how they’re painted on top of translucent black nails and how they’re embellished with these large gorgeous toppers.
Here’s another lace tip look that looks so pretty with its matte finish. It’s not as bold and bright as a full white tip look, and it’s just as classy as a classic white tip.
Here are some really cool-looking black diagonal tips. Instead of a solid color, we’ve got this cool lace design topped with some pretty reflective gems.
Here’s another nail set that features a simpler take on lace nails. The design isn’t as bold as the others, but it definitely adds a little something to the look.
Oh, I’m obsessed with this set. Along with the nude glitter nails, two accent nails look like they’ve been covered with some gorgeous lace.
