Most parties to celebrate this annual event are bright, colorful and playful, and your nails should reflect a similar vibe.
Depending on when in the year the birthday celebration falls, you can adjust your nail designs to match the season. For example, if you have a winter birthday, think snow and blue skies.
Try using foil or shimmery frost polishes and designs to really get across the season.
Birthdays also mean gifts aplenty, so try incorporating a wrapped gift with a bow into your nail game. Make a statement nail that features this design, and you can even embellish it with a name tag of whoever’s birthday it is at the moment.
You can also dress up your entire nail as a package and use a ribbon to mimic a fanciful present.
Cake is another iconic symbol of birthdays, and this sweet element makes for beautiful nail art!
For a fun play on the cake theme, you can show a cake in different stages of being eaten on each nail, until the cake is totally gone! That means you can put a slice on each nail to give this appearance and also tell a story at the same time.
Birthday candles and confetti are two more big symbols of this holiday. Light up the party by using your nails to look like candles, especially if you have naturally long nails.
For a more subtle birthday design, confetti always works, and you can use it with virtually any color scheme you wish.
Be the life of the birthday party with nails that match the celebration. Whether you go subtle or bold, everyone will appreciate your gift to the festivities!
