Well, our first entry has to be grand, right? Here’s one to make you all squiggly and happy. I love the touch of yin and yang nails design, plus the smiley in a pink base color. They look so adorable.
Do you like hot pink but don’t want to make your nails look so grandiose and imposing? Here’s a simple squiggly nail art in hot pink colors to satisfy your yearning.
If you don’t like pink… green perhaps? This one has three shades of green, plus white, to make your nails look classy and refined.
How about blue, though? Four shades of blue in the squiggly form illuminate the beauty of your long, coffin, natural-colored nails.
Another set of blue, but this time darker. Also, it only has one shade. I think the name of this blue polish is Blue Moon. Such a nice name.
Or maybe you just want it really, absolutely super simple. No worries, you can always imitate how these lines were squiggled.
Brown squiggles in light and dark mode. They are literally squiggling. Just look at those in the middle and ring fingernail, they even separated.
A bright green base that can pass as mint and dark green squiggles that we can call blue-green. Now, that is a wonderful combination.
A pretty vivid look.
Is it just me or do these squiggly nails also give you a magical vibe? I feel like the black squiggly line is a path guiding me to another dimension.
Red, white, and pink in a typical nail art combination. I like what the artist said: we will always come back to squiggly lines. Nothing beats the classic.
Pink and blue look fine over a natural glittered nail. These are perfect for those with short nails.
Who wouldn’t fall in love with these orange squiggly nails? I like that they added some glitters on it. It made the whole of it outstanding.
Now, that’s some fabulous squiggly nail art we got there. They somehow look like marble nails, except that they are squiggled and foiled. You can add these to your St. Patrick’s Day nail art list.
Squiggly nails for our brides-to-be or those who need to attend a wedding, and look so classy and dignified. What a lovely set!
Groovy in black. Ooh, I like this design. Should I get it next?
Squiggly nails in contemporary pastel colors. Good thing they added a black squiggle as it makes the other colors noticeable.
Rainbow colors, yay! I think I’m gonna go get these ones. They are so gorgeous!
A fun and bright manicure inspiration for those who have plans on going to the beach. I like that additional flower out there, even if it looks like an egg. Hah! Pun intended. Not your average beach nails but I can’t argue with the results.
Does this nail art give you ocean vibes? It does for me and I am already excited for summer! I’ve got tons of summer nail arts on my list, but I’m still gonna include this one.
Brilliant and colorful, that’s what these nails are. I like how they combined blue with neon colors. It makes the whole set striking yet still refreshing.
If you want a black base, here’s your treat. I like the inclusion of white squiggly lines. Creates a cool edgy black nail design.
Red is for love. Although, it doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day for you to get these nails done. You can wear them even on the simplest occasions… a formal meeting, for instance.
These are too cute to not include. Vivid colorway and fun shapes.
Oh, wait. Let me make some coffee. Hah! Here is the nail art for all our coffee lovers out there (like me)! Don’t they look like the coffee you just had this morning?
Blue and yellow have a good combination. They remind me of a uniform I once saw while watching a cheerleading competition. Cheerleader’s nails!
Admit it. The red dots made this whole set more astonishing. What do you think of squiggly lines as french tips?
They look like squiggly lines at first glance, and the artist even intended them to be called squiggly nails. But take a closer look and tell me what you see. Flowers, right?
Geometric lines overlay designed in the squiggly form. Cute, I know. I’d love to have these when the fall season starts.
A different type of “squiggly” here. I like the combination of black with purple. And, I like how the squiggly lines seem to have been applied in a very careful manner. So calculated!
Ooh, here’s something new for your eyes. Squiggly lines in different base colors. I can’t pick a favorite cause I’m loving them all. How about you?
Another squiggly french tip inspiration for those who are fond of tips. I like orange and the sky blue.
Squiggly nail art has been a trend for a long time now. It’s one of the first few nail arts that garnered so much attention. It’s still a classic, to be honest.
I know this is the kind of blue that you adore. Isn’t it so decent and charming to look at?
For the black and white lovers. I feel like this set is going to look so gorgeous in combination with an animal print design outfit.
There are two or three different kinds of neon yellow used in this nail art. I can’t seem to differentiate all the yellows I see, though. Can you?
These squiggling smileys are too cute for me to handle. You can try them on if you are all right with exposing your natural nails.
I love the peach colors she used for the base, but I love all the colors she used for the dimensions more.
These nails can get you funky and hyped. I love the squiggles but I love the smileys more!
Ah, something unique and new for your eyes once more. Here is a clash of marble nails and squiggly nails in various lovely colors. In fact, we can also consider them tie-dye nails!
I gave you hot pink nails with squiggly lines a while ago. Now, I want to give you a hot pink surface with white squiggly lines. Maybe you want the hot pink to be more visible.
The squiggly paths on her middle fingernails look like roads that lead you to a field full of butterflies, which you can find on her index and ring fingernails. Very witty, in fairness.
This one looks like heaven and earth. The french tips are the cloudy sky while the squiggly lines are like flowing rivers.
These nails are giving me some reggae vibes instead of a rainbow as expected by the artist. It’s probably because of the black polish. But they look so beautiful whatever they are!
Oh, here’s something for those who want it flashy and gaudy. I love all the colors they used here, but I need to say that my favorites are pink and yellow.
Blue and white squiggles if you want to look at the sky. You can choose which one to use or you can completely imitate this design and have both designs on your left and right hand.
A classic one for the minimalist out there. Black and white nail designs really don’t have to be plain and boring. It would also be nice to have as your wedding nail art if you are looking for one.
Handpainted squiggles in blue and pink combination. I think there is a cake that has these exact colors, so I’m feeling a bit hungry.
Pink to yellow gradient and some fire-shaped squiggly lines. Now, that’s sexy and fiery!
Oh, here’s to those who like it really colorful. Squiggly lines in swirl forms are adorable, too.
Looks so classy and refined. Perfect for a queen just like you!
