Angelic Nails Inspiration and Ideas

“We have an angel watching over us” is something my mother always said. This phrase always made me feel calm and protected. Since I was a little girl, I would always have angel necklaces, charms, or small angel figurines that I would keep with me. It was just a symbol for me of calmness and safety and that everything would be okay. 

As I got older and started showing interest in doing my nails, it became my and my mother’s thing to add angel art to our nails. I’m excited to share my Angelic Nails Inspiration and Ideas with you. Trust me, with all the years of adding angel art to my nails, I can definitely tell you what will look beautiful and what will not.

I love the color of this nail set. It is so soothing, calming, and soft on the eyes. The white cloud details, with the gold angelic charm, add such a peaceful vibe to the nails. This nail set has a spiritual meaning to me with the angels, the 777, and the clouds. It symbolizes to me that God and His angels are watching over me and giving me guidance. 

The only thing I dislike about this nail set is the length. It is just way too long! But if the set was shorter, I would definitely get it. I would even get it as my everyday nails. I would remove the golden angel charm and replace it with a gold angel sticker. So that everything doesn’t get attached to my nails. This nail set is subtle, classy, cute, and easy to create. It gets a yes from me!

#02 Creative Angelic Nails

Wow! Now this nail set is something else! It gives me retro vibes. I love the added chain, angelic decals, charms, rhinestones, and pearl detail to the nails. But together, it is just too much. I know my hair and everything in the house will get attached to these nails. It would have been cute if one or two nails had these added details. Sadly it is too over the top for me, and it gets a no.

The only thing I would change with this nail set is the length and that all the nails are not the same shape. I don’t like that the little fingernails are different from the rest of the nails. But if you like having some of your nails a different shape, then you do you, hun!
