16 Triangle Nail Designs That Are On Point

Whether you’re an expert or beginner, triangle nail art should be in your life.

The easy designs can be upgraded or downgraded depending on your skill, your time, or your willingness to try things over and over again until you get it right.

Regardless, I LOVE this trend. It’s clean, classy, simple and sassy. You can wear them to dinner, dancing or at the freaking opera if that’s your thing.

They are one word: perfect.

In case you’re not sold yet, look through these 16 nail designs. You’ll get there. Trust me.
