You do not need to be an art expert to create beautiful toe nail designs for any occasion – birthdays, party, anniversary, holidays or even weddings. A simple combination of colors and some basic day to day items will enable you to decorate you toes beautifully. This is still an art, however, and like most art, you should begin with basic shapes and designs and then keep adding more complex patterns after that. Once you feel somewhat confident with your patterns and results, you can freely try out complicated designs, flowers or swirls. You can always purchase nail art kit when you are out of ideas or need to simplfy things. A thing to note is to remember that like any art, simplicity is the key, and simplicity can actually create beautiful designs. This article list out some easy toenail designs ideas for you to try out.

Toe nail designs that incorporate random lines are beautiful and easy to do. The abstract nature of these lines makes it a whole lot easier since any mistake that you make can easily be covered and assumed to be the intended design. You start off with a dark colored base coat on your toe nails, preferably red. If you do use nail art brushes, make sure they are thin as you do not want to produce blobs on your toenails. Another alternative would be to use toothpick. Using these tools, apply black nail polish on them and make thin, random strokes of line starting from the base of your toenails and advance from there. You can opt to have your lines starting from different points, or from the same point. Thin lines make a neat design, therefore keep them thin, and do not apply too many lines per nail – two or three black lines per toenails should do the trick.

Beginners in toe nail designs can also attempt flower designs. Flower design may look complicated, but it is actually quite simple to do, and it has an advantage – should you make any accidents or mistake in your design, they can easily be turned into flowers. Start off the design by deciding what color you like for the middle part of the flower to be – typical colors are yellow and white. Then apply a base coat of matching color to your nails first. Then, put a dab of your chosen color (for the middle part) on your nails. Next, decide another matching color for its petals, and place several dabs around the first color, and you’re done for the first flower. It is recommended to create flowers slightly to the side and corner as this looks more professional and elegant. Apply this design for each of your toenails. If you do not like filled petals, you can use very thin brush or toothpick to draw circles or ovals as the petals. Alternatively, you can simple draw lines coming out from the center dab of color which you first created, and this can be another flower design too. These last 2 methods enable you to use only one color instead of two for the flower design.
