Even if you are good at applying the plain nail polish and think that it is easy, it does not mean that making different designs on your nails will be the same. There are different levels for applying nail art designs; there are those easy ones for the beginners, those in the middle who could be handled but not by all types of people, and those difficult ones that need someone who is professional enough and have been through the easy, the intermediate, and could go through the difficult ones as well. The field of nail art has become famous; it stopped being about simple things, but people are even designing their nails according to the season or the event they will be attending.

Such nails are what we refer to as cool nail designs; they are different, they are easy to be applied, and they are even celebrating an occasion with you; so why not?
Okay, we have to say that when it comes to nail designs; there is the cool, there is the regular, and there is the ugly.

- Draw Your Cat
It could be a cat and it could be any other pet that you have. There are a lot of those people who get too much attached to their pets and this is the main reason why we are referring to this idea in the first place. You will not draw a cat on every single nail, but you will just choose one on which you will color it with a natural transparent color and then draw your cat on it when it completely dries. Actually, mentioning a cat was because of the easy way of drawing it, not like the dogs, birds, or even turtles.

Don’t try to make it on the regular days because it will not look cool the same way it does when it is related to a specific event.
- Write on Your Nails
Although writing on the nails might not be as easy as you think because the brush will be thick for the thin and small characters, you could either find a brush that is too thin or get a pen that is specialized for such things. Writing on your fingers is suitable for different occasions; you could write the date of your wedding day for the photo session, or you could keep it during the celebration although it would not look trendy. There aren’t a lot of occasions to do this writing thing, but if you find it cool then you could try it one time.
