Chic & Trendy Mermaid Nail Designs
There are 4 types of mermaids, based on mythology:
1: Traditional mermaids that can only be found at the sea
2: Skin shedding mermaids that can walk on land for a shorter amount of time
3: Shape-shifting mermaids that can transform in a human
4: Entirely human form that lives on the ground and the sea
Since every mermaid has a story of their own, so do your nails. On our list, you will definitely find just the right ones for you, so just let the imagination flow.

Square nail shape is the most appropriate one for the mermaid nail design. It just gives out the greatest underwater feeling, and the shell drawings and little pearl details melt so seamlessly onto this nail shape.

We decided to tone it down with the blue, so this pink mermaid inspired nail design is just right for those ladies who are fans of ladylike lighter colors. Just a little bit of the golden details are enough for you to feel strong and fashionable.
Just when you thought they can’t get more stylish, we have these. Ariel is the famous Disney princess and she looks cute and stunning when being surrounded with all of this funky and fresh sea ambiance.
#15: Blue Details
Short square mermaid nail designs are the best choice if you are scared of the breakage. If you don’t feel like getting them redone every now and then that’s fine. Just go for the shorter version and feel like a little underwater queen.

You won’t be scared about damaging them, and you will feel super comfortable while rocking them.
#18: Silly Silhouette
This funky mermaid nail silhouette isn’t that much of a bold mermaid statement, but it is still something. If you are not all about those bold prints and dramatically shimmery stones, this is the perfect mini mermaid nail design you should get. It is something for starters, and in time you will try out bolder prints too, but you got to start somewhere, and we suggest that you try out this lucky number 18.
#19: Crafting Time
If black color is the one you tend to wear to most, this long acrylic speaks your name! If you feel the most comfortable in black, or if you love the mystery effect, continue with the black! Darker nail lacquer color can also be a good mermaid base, but don’t go overboard with the shimmery details.
#20: Pointy Mermaid
Pointy nails are required to be worn with class and sass! Make sure to have a license on you for these, since they look like a mean man catching machine.
