Some women hate bugs, but butterflies and ladybugs are so colorful, beautiful and lovable that it’s difficult not to fall in love with them and put them in a separate category.

There aren’t many women who don’t like glitter because this magical material has the ability to immediately transform from mediocre to magnificent. This is one reason why glitter nails have become so popular for acrylic toes. You will first put the red color as your base, then choose the type of glitter you desire. Your nail tech will handle the rest. If you’re doing a DIY job at home, you will decide what type of glitter to use for your acrylic toes.

Dotted acrylic toenails

In addition to being popular, dotted acrylic toenails are one of the relatively easy designs to create at home. However, many women prefer to have their acrylic toenails professionally done, because even though this type of pedicure is more expensive than all others, acrylic can be challenging to work with, especially when doing the toes. Dotted toenails can consist of any base color and any colored dots, and the sky is the limit when it comes to ideas.

Flowered acrylic toenails

There’s something about the mixture of red, white and blue that creates beautiful designs. There are numerous red, white and blue designs available for your acrylic toenails, and if you don’t see what you’d like, then create your own. Red, white and blue swirled together like marble is popular, but so is a white nail base with red and blue rhinestones. These are just two out of hundreds of possible ways to feel summer heat through your acrylic toenails.

Pink toenails

You might opt for hot pink with silver glitter, rhinestones, or a similar variation. Think about your choices before deciding; you might even try looking for inspiration online for other possibilities. If you’re having your toenails done professionally, you will be provided with a book with design ideas, but if you can’t find what you want, don’t be afraid to make a suggestion or show the nail tech a picture of what you want.

Animal prints

Animal prints like butterfly, cow, leopard and zebra prints are very popular when it comes to acrylic toenails (and fingernails). If you don’t feel you’re talented enough to create such prints at home, then the right salon can do them for you. You could even alternate different animals prints on different toes, if you wanted. Or, if you want to stick with only one choice for them all, then that’s all right, as well.

Blue toenails

Of course, you can customize your toes however you want, but regardless of how you personalize them, it’s very likely to be gorgeous.


Having your toenails done can be just as fun and exciting as having your fingernails done. Hopefully, the above list has provided you with ideas so you’ll know what to choose for your next acyclic pedicure.
