In today’s blog post, I’ll be sharing 30 fabulous royal blue nail ideas to inspire your next manicure. You’ll find everything from subtle designs like simple stripes to bold looks featuring rhinestones, chrome, and more. Royal blue lends itself well to many different nail art styles and techniques. And since it’s a bolder shade, a little bit goes a long way – you don’t need a lot of embellishment for the color itself to stand out.
Most of these designs can be DIY’ed at home with some patience and basic tools. But you may want to visit your local nail salon for extra-intricate art or if you want an expert to apply acrylics or gel polish. The average price for a basic royal blue manicure is $15-30 depending on what you get done. Read on for gorgeous ways to wear this regal blue hue on your nails!
