It’s been a minute since we talked about beautiful tan nail designs. Tan nails are actually the ones that women tend to get the most when at the salon or doing themselves.
The reason is nude tones look the most appealing and ladylike. Besides tan or nude, the second most asked for nail design is the French manicure. These softer designs are perfect for ladies who like to have formal, professional, and classic nails.
Smart Tan Nail Designs
As we said, tan is the perfect color when you want to look smart and ready to wrap up that meeting in a blink of an eye.
If you’re more of a chill, laid back person and you want to style your nails for your everyday activities, you’ll be able to do that too with the below ideas for tan nails.
#1: Black and Tan
After painting your two center nails tan, frame them with a black pinky nail and a gold glittered pointer. You can add a black horizontal line to a nude thumb nail.
#2: Tan Coffin Nails
Extra long tan nails are a way to be glam yet still professional-feeling. This tan almost seems to have a pink undertone which you can easily get by starting with a light pink base and painting over with tan.
#3: Matte Tan
No need to be ashamed of only having short tan nails when you rock a matte pattern like this. Tan with grey, pale yellow, and light blue are an unexpectedly beautiful combination.
#4: Tan Acrylics
With medium length square acrylics painted in tan polish, you’ll feel confident and gorgeous whether you’re in a meeting or on a date.

#6: OPI Loves All Natural
OPI is a worldwide famous nail lacquer, founded in the U.S. and has been around for more than 30 years. The quality and the color range they provide is more than enough, and there is a little bit of everything for everyone.
We recommend their ”Bubble Bath” nail polish since it is the prettiest neutral tan base you could go for. ”My Very First Knockwurst” and ”Over The Taupe” are also some pretty tan shades.

And you can see it again, OPI has stolen all the glory. This darker shade called ”Chocolate Mousse” looks really simple but somehow interesting and different than the other tan-colored nails you see every day. It’s gotta be the quality that brings the life back into it.

Freshness, beauty, and style are the three words that describe this tan nail design. This summer, be the main attraction wherever you go with this nail idea.

You can make them glamorous just by doing them in the stiletto shape, or by getting them this long.
