25 Chic Birthday Nails For Your Special Day
1. Short and Sweet
Birthday nails don’t mean you have to go far out of your comfort zone, nor do you need to go for super long crazy nails. This short, baby pink chrome manicure is perfect for all the girly girls.
2. Glitter bomb
If you like to look like a birthday girl, nothing says it like a full glitter manicure. This mix of chunky glitter is perfect if you’re having an evening party or dinner to celebrate.

4. night luxe
One for all the night luxe Pinterest girlies (if you know you know).

Blue nails are really underrated. They aren’t as chic as a classic French manicure, or cherry red nails, but go for it if it reflects your personal style – today is all about celebrating YOU!

A mirror, but GOLD. If you love the reflective silver manicure, but are more of a gold girly, this should be your next birthday set.
9. Barely there
This slight French manicure works for any occasion, and is a great option if getting a manicure is usually a birthday treat!

Crystals and glitter are common nail art components, but why not try something a little different and go for a pearl instead of a diamond?
