Beautiful Blue and Silver Nails
When you choose a blue and silver nail design from our list, you can be sure you’ll be sporting the latest and greatest trends!
1. Sparkly Blue and Silver Coffin Nails
Need a little sparkle for a special occasion? These glittered blue and white long coffin nails won’t let you down! The ring fingernail stands out with its half blue half white nail design defined by a thin white line and six tiny dots.
2. Silver and Navy Blue Nails
For those short nails of yours, file them into a squoval shape before painting them with a dark blue. Then add silver snowflakes to shine and pop against the dark background. It’s the prettiest winter nail design!
3. Silver & Royal Blue Nails
A royal blue is both deep and bright. With silver to enhance its shine, you can create this beautiful design for short stiletto nails. We love the mixture of a subtle light green with blue glitter on the pointer fingernail.
4. Light Blue and Silver Nails
Long square nails are the perfect length and shape for displaying a beautiful light blue. Completely cover your accent nail in silver polish and add either silver polish or silver stones at the crescent of the center fingernail.
5. Dark Blue and Silver Nails
A dark glittery blue is a bold choice of color. With silver accents in tiny and medium-sized rhinestones, the shimmer is much more enhanced.
6. A Hint of Black
Make those blue and silver nails pop with a hint of black. Add glitter on plain blue and black ones creating a starry night effect. Paint swooped lines on the remaining short square nails for a marble effect. Eye-catching!
7. Navy Blue and Silver Nails
Love long nails? Try stiletto or almond-shaped ones and cover them in sparkling glitter while the middle ones have a matte navy/midnight blue base. Paint lines and circles using silver, white, and glossy blue nail colors with a fine brush. Voila!
8. Silver Swirls
Blue is a go-to shade to spice up short natural nails. Cover the accent nail in silver glitter and create silver swirls on the blue ones by whirling around a very fine brush or use a nail art stamping kit instead. Easy breezy!
9. Gradient Nails
Paint each nail in a different shade to achieve gradient nails also known as multi-colored nails. Recreate this look with sparkling silver, dark blue, bluish purple, and plain white nail colors used individually on the nails. Top off with some chunky glitter.
10. Chic Triangles
Make your hands stand out with a vibrant matte aqua nail color. Draw silvery white triangles pointing towards the square-shaped nail tips. Finish off by adding a single black stud on the top corner of each triangle. Done!
11. Classy French Tips
Classy and timeless, French tips can be created with almost any nail color. Go for a nude pink base and add stripes of silver and blue glitter on the tips. Add details with fine lines or leave it simple. Your choice!
12. Flickering Silver Foil
This gorgeous navy blue and silver nail design is the simplest to achieve among all. Paint the nails and put the foil when the polish is still a bit tacky. Remove it to reveal a splattered design underneath and finish off with a top coat.
13. Two-Toned Color Block
Another stylish yet effortless nail design to try at home. Use some tape to achieve the perfect color blocking on the nails. Place sky blue polish on the bottom with a silvery gray top or try the other way round.
