For my fellow sweet tooth fashionistas, donut nails are the best designs to rock for National Doughnut Day. But fanatics or not, all the trendsetters out there will surely adore this roundup I’ve prepared.
Check out these cute nail designs you can try, regardless of the occasion!
13 Cute Donut Nails You Can Try for a Sweet-Tastic and Doughy Goodness Designs
1. Glazin’ Glam
We all know the glaze makes any doughnut ten times tastier. Highlighting this sweet concoction on your donut nails will make them stand out, for sure!
Tip: Can’t create the dripping look to save your life? Nail stamps are here to the rescue! Finish off with some clear lacquer, and you’re good to go.
2. À La Mode
It may be National Doughnut Day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t combine your two favorite treats into one! All you need is ice cream for some sweet, creamy goodness.
Tip: 3D nail art is the best way to make those doughnut bites and gelato scoops pop. You can add other cute accents too, like little candies and bows!
3. Cotton Candy Dreams
If you’re the type of fashionista who’s obsessed with everything pink and purple, these are the donut nails for you. They’re the cotton candy nail designs you’ve always wanted!
Tip: Add doughnut embellishments on your middle and ring fingernails. Leave the index and little fingernails with plain nail polish for that minimalist vibe.
4. Home of the OG
Believe it or not, there are some hardcore fans of the Krispy Kreme’s signature Original Glazed™ doughnut! If you’re one of the OG lovers, this design might suit your style.
Tip: Start with the iconic white base and green polka dots, then add hints of red. Don’t forget the 3D acrylic doughnut! You can even incorporate the logo if you like.
5. Dunkin’ Delish
Of course, we cannot leave out the true American classic: Dunkin’ Donuts. With all the colors you can play with, these donut nails will catch anyone’s attention!
Tip: To make things more fun and quirky, why not recreate the logo on your nails? The beloved iced coffee needs to be present too, or else it won’t be complete!
6. Sprinkle Through the Stars
If you want something that is more out of this world, this nail design will show you the galaxy filled with twinkling stars and doughnut meteorites!
Tip: When creating intricate nail art, it is better to use a fake nail or acrylic extension to simplify the process. It’s hard to paint planets if you’re doing it on your nails!
7. Craving for Chocolate
A chocoholic will always choose the eclairs over the sugar doughnuts and jelly munchkins. Let the decadent cocoa richness shine with these donut nails!
Tip: Apply different textures on each fingernail to capture the essence of your favorite chocolate pastries! You can use nail polishes with matte, pearl, sheer, and metallic finishes.
8. Sweet Serenity
A statement nail design will elevate your look for National Doughnut Day, so don’t hesitate to go crazy with 3D nail art! This one’s a perfect mix of icing, sprinkles, and glaze.
Tip: Choose a color palette that will represent your desired flavors, then select a unique acrylic nail shape for more dimension. Garnish with some gems while you’re at it, too!
9. Simply Nude
If you’ve always rocked nude nails, it’s not impossible to prep them for National Doughnut Day. You just need inspiration from Homer Simpson’s iconic pink doughnut!
Tip: Nude nail polish can complement a lot of colors, but more vibrant shades allow the details of the design to stand out. Go for vivid hues like pink, red, orange, yellow, and more!
10. Sprinkle Overload
Obsessed with donut sprinkles? These tiny sweet treats can make up a super cute pattern for your donut nails. A sunny base coat will brighten them up even more!
Tip: Practice creating your sprinkle pattern before applying them on your nails. Don’t focus too much on symmetry; it’s more fun when they’re creatively scattered!
11. Clearly Sweet
If you’re not a big fan of loud nail art, you can still rock these chic donut nails! A few coats of clear nail polish and some nail stickers will do.
Tip: There are a lot of ready-to-wear nail decals you can use. Place them on different parts of your fingernail for a unique touch. Try out some french tips, too!
12. Pastel Pastry
Pastel nail polish has been raved about for all kinds of nail designs, so it’s no surprise they’re the stars of most donut nail arts. Who doesn’t love colorful nails, anyway?
Tip: For every nail, choose two contrasting colors for more depth. You can also add some words and phrases if you want to go out of the box!
13. Tasty in Blue
The bubblegum aesthetic is such a cute look you can use for your donut nails. A sky blue base is eye-catching, regardless of the doughnut styles you want to incorporate!
Tip: Blue nail polish looks great with a lot of colors, but it blends the best with white, pink, and some dark hues. Add clear lacquer for a little shine.
