In middle school, I wasn't allowed to wear bright colored nail polish (rude, I know.) While not all schools are as strict as mine was, you might not want to go all out in the nail department, especially if you’re trying to keep distractions to a minimum. Nude-based nail art is the perfect way to flaunt your personal style without going over the top. Ahead, find the cutest nude-based nail art looks on Instagram to serve as inspiration for your next nail appointment. 

Evil Eye

Protect your vibe with dainty evil eye details. First, add a pinky-nude base, like Essie Topless and Barefoot, before adding the tiny blue blue and white eyes on a few of your nails.

Stiletto Squiggles

We love a squiggle moment and this mani by @sparklenail_bar takes the cake. The free-handed line drawings paired with a unique nail shape, like the stiletto one seen here, takes a simple nude mani up a notch. 

Classic With a Twist

Head back to school in style with a remix on a classic French mani. Here, @raelondonnails added black polish to create a sleek, minimalistic nail look.

Abstract Art

We love these almond-shaped nude nails with brown, orange and grapefruit-colored abstract art. This super fresh take on a nude mani serves personality without potentially distracting you from your studies.

Matte Mani 

One of the best ways to play up a nude manicure is to dabble with different textures. Add a layer of the Essie Matte About You Matte Finisher on top of any manicure — even one done with a glossy polish — for a smooth matte finish.
