Easy Kawaii Nail Art

Posted on


Even if you don’t have anywhere to go at the moment, kawaii nails are always a cute look. Nail art can be tricky to do yourself but there are loads of readymade designs to help you get started. Here’s a few different ideas to try, whatever your skill level, and we’ll share some DIYs another time.

Kawaii Nail Decals & Transfers

Nail decals are an easy way to add a bit of kawaii to your usual style as you add them on top of polish or acrylic nails, plus a clear top coat. Pearl Planet (UK) has some super cute designs inspired by Disney, Animal Crossing and 90s cartoons.

Or CherryNailsGifts (Australia) sells Japanese nail stickers with cute themes like cats, bunnies and unicorns.

Kawaii Nail Wraps

Nail wraps let you skip the polish as the printed design covers your whole nail and can be trimmed to fit any size. NailPolishStrips (UK) have lots of colourful designs like these sprinkles.

You can even get Pusheen nail wraps from Claire’s (UK) which also come with a Pusheen-shaped nail file!

3D Nails

Japanese-style nail art is perfect for a very special occasion but if you can’t visit a salon, 3D press-on nails look just as cute and are even reusable. The decoden designs by Aya1gou (Japan) are tiny works of art and there’s so many different styles and shapes available.

Nail Polish

There are so many cool nail polishes now that need no extra decoration. PolishMeSilly (USA) have lots to choose from including glitter, neon, holographic and colour changing.

Do remember that nail polish often can’t be sent internationally – try searching for nail polish on Etsy and then filter to your country to see what’s available.
