Grab yourself a dotter tool and get creating. Instead of randomly adding dots here and there, try creating a design with them. Use different colored nail polishes to enhance the effect.

2. Camouflage 

💕💚Camo nails💚💕 I have been wanting to do camo again in a long time and now I finally got to it!🙌🏼 I used polished from @hm I'm very happy about them because they're easy to work with. Love their wide brushes too! In my next post I'll show you my inspiration for this mani…😏 – Polish @hm Flamingo Flush @hm Make a Mint @hm Wildwood @hm Bedazzled #hm #hmpolish #hmnailpolish #hmnails #hmbeauty #hm❤️ #easynailart #nailart #instanails #polishaholic #nailpolish #nails2inspire #nailpolishaddict #nailsofinstagram #manicure #polishblogger #nagellack #nyc #craftyfingers #green #greennails #nailswag #armymani #camo #graveyardgirl #camonails #camomani #camouflage #grav3yardgirl

Grab a couple of your favorite nail polishes and add different splotches to your nails to create a cool camo effect.

The genius about this design is that the contrasting white dots not only add a new element to the two-tone mani, but they also help disguise a wonky line. Clever.

4. Blue Bear

Anyone else like to match their mani to their kid's birthday party?? 🐻 shades used: OPI "non-stop white", "black onyx", "can't find my czechbook"

A post shared by Melissa (@timeout.for.cake) on

Who could resist this adorable blue bear and polka dot manicure? Not us.

5. Feather Strokes

Hey guys! Sorry for the long absence again. Here is a pic of my current mani. Really love the colour combination 😍 Let me know your thoughts. Also I am going to Europe very soon but I will try and post while we are away. So excited!! Colours used were @chinaglazeofficial Under the Boardwalk, @opiaustralia Alpine Snow and some nail strikers from Kiss.

Grab a skinny nail polish brush or a toothpick and create these dynamic strokes. You can stick with two colors or try a few different shades, like with this contrasting manicure.

6. Blue and White Zigzags

Like how this funky wiggle lines came out lol Blue: "Rich Girls & Po-Boys" @opi_products White: Acrylic Paint #opi #putyourmaniintheair

A post shared by Chelsee (@nails_bychelss) on

Remember: You don’t need a million different details to create a stunning look. The chunky wiggles of this nail art look are proof of that.

7. Dainty Flowers

My solo shot for this week's #nailsunitedmaychallenge This week's theme is Floral! I thought a fun Daisy dotticure would be cute! Go check out @nails.united @nailsunitedchallenges to see the other manis and join the fun! 😘❤💅 Sinful Colors: Holly-wood Sinful Colors: Snow me White Pure Ice: Show Stopper . . . #summernails #floralnails #nailswithfriends #nails2inspire #cutenails #mani #notd #nailart #easynailart #dotticure

Flowers are nothing more than  few dots. You can adjust the size of them depending on  your dotter tool. Also don’t be afraid to experiment with finishes. Note the matte red background color on this look.

8. Splatter Print

Simple matte lavender confetti nails :D #comfetti #nailart #naildesign #nails #lavender #dots #happy #simple #easynailart

A post shared by Maja Madsen (@stylistmajamadsen) on

You cannot go wrong with a splatter mani because you’re basically just flinging the color on your nails then cleaning up any parts that go on your skin. Just remember to protect your bathroom before you start going to wild with your polish.

9. Textured French Mani

Super easy abstract summer nail💅🏼✨💙💙💙 #nails #nails💅 #nailart #julepmaven #abstract #bluenails #naildesigns #nailsofinstagram #easynailart

A post shared by ✨Hirokoconut✨ (@hirokoconut) on

Do you struggle to get a crisp line on a traditional french manicure? Forget about it and use multiple shades of one color to create a textured, feather-like look.

10. Cows

Cows! These were a lot of fun . . . #nailpolish #nailstagram #dotticure #cows #iphone6 #iphoneography #nailart #nails #nailswag #naildesigns #easynailart

Yes, you can even easily create animals. These adorable little cows are nothing more than a fat french manicure and a bunch of black dots. Use a dotter tool to create the latter and your job will be even easier.

11. Anchors

Make your own sea!

Looking for a bit of beach inspiration? Try adding some dainty anchor designs to plain nails. You don’t need to get overly complicated with the shape.
