Daisy Nail Designs For Different Nail Shapes And Lengths 

Painting daisy nail designs on nude, French, colored, and ombre nails is the best option. It is not that adaptable on nails with geometric designs or patchy nail art. Also, it can get along with trends like butterfly nail designs, phoenix nail designs, etc. by bringing in the floral element. Daisy nail designs can be an accent or the end which means it can complement another design or stand on its own. The number and size of the daisy nail designs will depend on that!

The choice of daisy nail designs also depends on the length and shape of the nails.

Long Nails

The longer the nail, the more versatile you can be in nail art. You can start with shimmer, ombre, monochrome, or nude nails as a canvas. With long nails, you will have a range of options regarding the shape, size, and number of daisies you want to include in the design. You can add daisies of different colors as well.

Several daisies: Needless to say, longer nails can accommodate many daisies on one fingernail. You can also make a statement like drawing one single big daisy on selected fingers or thumb while leaving the other fingers barren. 

Size of the daisies: The size of daisies can be exaggerated when you have longer nails though it is not a rule of thumb! You can make a  big statement with one big daisy or add a large half-daisyIf you are mixing other styles like French or swirls, you can leave the daisy smaller. You still can add multiple daisies as the nails are long.

Medium Length Nails

Medium nails are equally versatile as you can mix daisy nail designs with other elements like French, Milkly french manicure, polka dots, swirls, shimmer, and bling to name a few.

Size and number of daisies: You can draw a cluster of small daisies or a single one depending on the style you are going to choose- subtle or abundant!

A Stiletto Daisy Nail Design which mixes daisy nail designs into the ombre nails can make the daisies stand out in a classy yet colorfully subdued way. Both mature girls and teeny fashionistas can equally dig this pretty daisy nail art, suitable for both medium and long nails. You can also go low-key with colorful daisy nail designs on nude nails that beautifully house the naturally lush and flowery earth with many daisies with foliage creeping up your nails. 

Choice of Fingers: You can draw as many daisies as you want on any finger. But if you want it to go subtle, you can choose a finger or two with a choice of coloring the other fingers.

Short Nails

There are daisy nail designs that can flatter shorter nails as well.

Short nails will look super cool with daisy nail designs on selected fingers unless you want daisies on all your digits. The rule with short nails is that you should not overdo anything. Be it the number of daisies, adding other styles like swirls, polka, stripes, etc. 

 Size and number of daisies: If the nails are short, you can either draw small daisies on nude or colored nails or draw a moderately big single-nail daisy on your finger. If you want to accommodate a style that has more daisies on one finger, the size of each one should be small. You can also draw half a daisy to make the daisy element more obvious and to avoid the bother of carrying a magnifying glass to prove that it is a daisy indeed!

Choice of Fingers: You can add a daisy to each fingernail uniformly. Alternatively, you can paint a super cute daisy nail design on short nails in pastel, leaving just one or two fingernails to accommodate the cheeriness of white daisies. Even babies can carry this cuteness overdose. You have a choice to leave out some fingernails to make the design subtle. 

Shape Of Nails

The shape of the nails also plays an important role in choosing the daisy nail design. An oval, coffin, or stiletto nail can carry daisies of varying sizes along with some French tips, glitter, swirls, and some bling. Smaller and square nails can house only the choicest tiny daisies!

How To Accommodate Daisies Universally?

You can add daisies to any shape or size of nails. Bear in mind that longer nails can accommodate as many daisies and a mix of styles. Medium and short nails can flaunt daisy nail designs in three ways:

  1. You can draw a single daisy on each nail of every finger.
  2. You can draw multiple daisies on selected fingers.
  3. You can draw bigger daisies by reducing the number of daisies on a single digit, or by drawing half daisies towards the tip or the nailbeds (2).

When going for daisy nail designs on short nails, coloring it with pastels or the color of your choice which matches your skin tone will make the design worth its while. Both dark and light shades of nail polish can make the short nails look good with the daisy nail designs on them. It is better not to go with shimmer as the base nail color for shorter nails, but you can always add a dash here and there. 

Nail Care Tips For Durable Daisy Nails

You can also increase the longevity of your daisy nails with a proper base coat as a strong foundation, nail color (optional), and a top coat to seal it all in. Always apply a fresh coat of a base nail color after removing all the residue from the precious manicure before getting the daisies. Try to keep away from harsh chemicals in household cleaners by using milder ones or by using gloves while doing household chores. Refrain from strenuous activities that require hand usage to prevent the risks of daisy nail designs chipping or peeling off. Intricate 3D nail designs can chip off easily without proper care, such as moisturizing and avoiding extreme heat, like while cooking.

Au Revoir!

You can also accommodate daisy nail designs on any nail, irrespective of its size or shape. This can incorporate elements from other nail art designs if the nail provides the space to house them. An intelligent choice of base color and size of the daisy can make a masterpiece- no doubt! Do you dote one already? Nail up, princess!
