38+ Daisy Nails For A Delicate & Romantic Manicure

Flowers, especially daisies, mean that spring has sprung! During this time, it isn’t uncommon to see people accessorizing and dressing up to match the romantic summer glow with a whole bunch of flower accessories.

One of my favorite ways to accessorize with flowers is by painting my nails with daisies. It’s fairly simple and is an easier look to recreate than other trending nail art designs. A daisy is basically a five-dot flower that you can make with a stamping technique, which is almost not surprising to see this trend take over Instagram and Pinterest.

With a few tricks, this simple but intricate-looking design can save you a trip to the nail salon. Plus, daisy nails are just too cute!

Next, we’ll go over how to paint daisy nails as well as some of the trending manicures right now. Or, feel free to skip ahead to the daisy nail inspo photos if you just want to see pretty pics!

Painting Daisy Nails 

Daisy nails are really easy to do as long as you have the right tools!

Tools:

To paint daisy nails, you only need four polish colors: white and yellow for the daisy, a base color, and a clear protective coat for the finish. You can always mix up or change traditional daisy colors for a different palette.

For the extra tools, you’ll need a toothpick and/or a metal dotter. 

Pro-tip: Time-limited? Instead of painting all your nails with daisies, try painting one or two accent nails instead. 

Trending Daisy Nails:

Here are the top types of manicures with daisies that are trending right now.

1. Multi-Colored Flowers 

Ever wondered what a garden looks like on your nails? A variety of daisies and flowers painted over a bright yellow base can look good with a flowy sundress. Perfect for summer!

2. White Daisies on Navy Nails

Want vivid and noticeable daisy nails? With a dark navy blue base, daisies can easily be highlighted and noticed even with just one glance. I would pair these nails with formal looks, such as a white blouse or a white dress. 

3. Bright Red Base + Daisies 

Red is an unconventional color to pair with daisies, but it doesn’t mean you should try it! To complement the red base, you can switch up the daisies’ center with black polish. 

4. Dotted Daisies 

Negative spaces add an aura of minimalism, simplicity, and elegance. Plus, dotted daisies are so easy to replicate with a metal dotter or a toothpick. Instead of making brush strokes for the petals, simply make small dots, leaving a little gap for every petal in between. 

5. Y2K Daisies 

Feeling playful? Add a bit of color! Use pink, blue, green, and yellow for your daisies. You can keep the center of each daisy yellow, or you can mix and match. To make the colors pop out, use a white base.

6. Green Nails with Daisy Accent 

Green nails paired with a nice daisy accent create a beautiful contrast. Aside from that, the perfect shade of green can also mimic a bush surrounding a bud of daisies. The perfect placement for this design would be somewhere in between the point and the pinky finger.

7. Monochromatic Daisies

There’s nothing more edgy and unconventional than monochromatic daisies. By replacing the traditional yellow center, you recreate a whole different aura. I love pairing it with a flashy base but you can always leave it as is. Perfect for every outfit!

8. French Tip With Colored Daisies

French tips never go out of style, they just evolve! With a classic French tip, simply stamp one to three mini daisies on each tip. You can change the tip base to a different color other than white for a more vivid effect.

9. Daisy Sticker Accent 

What’s the easiest way to rock daisy nails than to stick them on? If time is not your best friend, you can always find daisy stickers and charms to create a nail accent. You can paint the rest in one solid color. Now you’re ready to impress! 

10. Pastel Blue and Daisies 

Pastel colors are the equivalents of daisies. They give off a dainty, soft, and feminine touch. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t combine both! 

11. Yellow Nails and Daisy Accent 

Since yellow is only used to paint the center of a daisy, it doesn’t get that much attention. To balance it out, use your yellow polish to paint the rest of your nails. Leave one nail to paint the daisy accent.

12. Multi-Colored Pastel Nails and Daisy Accent 

Another daisy accent nail trend that you will surely love! Instead of using a single color for your nails, use two to three pastel colors. Leave one nail to paint the daisy accent. 

13. Navy Blue Tips And Daisies 

Ever thought of drawing daisies on your tips? If you have longer nails, you can paint them with a slightly thicker French tip, making sure to leave enough space to draw miniature daisies. 

14. Bridal-Inspired Daisy Nails (White Nails) 

Looking for a bridal-friendly design? To add a bit of fun to an all-white set, you can leave one nail for a daisy accent. What makes this a great option than other flower types is the dainty and subtle character. Perfect for a bride!

15. Bridal-Inspired Daisy Tips (Mini Daisies On Tips)

Want a subtler and feminine version of the French tip? Scratch that up and paint daisies instead! Start with a naked or nude base and paint on the tips. It’s so much easier than to perfect French tips by yourself at home.

16. Peek-A-Boo Daisy Nails 

Another playful way to paint daisies on your nails is by painting them on the side most or corner most areas of each nail, highlighting only half of a daisy. For an accent, you can choose one nail to draw a full daisy.

17. Daisies with Gold Center 

Wearing daisies for an evening event? Replacing yellow with a tint of chrome or gold polish can do the trick! For the base, you can go with a light rose or nude. 

18. One Daisy Per Nail 

A subtle way to add daisies to a naked nail is by painting one daisy on the base of each nail. You can do the “dotted daisy” effect to create a minimal style. 

19. Doodle Daisies 

Doodle-style nails are much more vivid and bolder than most traditional versions. The base should be white and the daisy is “drawn” using black polish. The center should still be yellow. For a cleaner look, opt for a thinner and smaller brush. 

20. Daisies with Happy Face Doodle 

Funny, humorous, and cute. This design is inspired by Korean trends that are popularly known on Instagram and Pinterest. A happy face doodle placed on a stamped daisy can certainly add character and life to your nails!

21. Multi-Sized Daisies 

Create depth and story with daisies by drawing them in different sizes. You can choose one or multiple colors to play around with. If you’re feeling experimental, you can distort them to add an artsy effect!

22. Neon Daisies

Neon daisies are fun, hip, and unique! As opposed to the usual “dainty” effect, neon daisies can add as an accessory to any party-ready fit. If they glow in the dark, the better! 

23. 3D Daisies on Gold Nails

Want to go extra? Put on some daisy charms! They’re cute, fancy, and easy to put on. If you have longer nails, the better. A larger surface area can give you more allowance to put more daisies. 

24. Chunky Daisy Charms 

Chunky daisy charms usually come along with other Y2K-inspired pieces. Some press-on nail sets also come with built-in daisy charms, which can save you from any DIY work. So much easier!
