Here Are Our Top 8 Glow in the Dark Nail Designs!

1. Marble Glowing Nails

Glow in the dark nail polish designs are so much fun to do, and on the top of our list is a design that requires a little bit of experience, but it a beautiful trend once mastered.

There are plain versions of marble nail designs that are great, but this glow in the dark version takes it to a whole new level. You would be needing a very thin nail polish brush to achieve this look.

With your thin brush dipped in white nail polish, you swirl it around your blue, green, and pink glow in the dark nail polish. Doing so creates that marbled effect and blurs out the lines between each color and adds a seamless effect to your design.

2. Marble & Ombre Light up Nails


This gorgeous example is a combination of two glow in the dark nail designs. Marble and ombre glow in the dark acrylic nails are alternately applied on each finger to create a unique and eye-catching nail design.

You can use this combination method with any nail shape, may it be square, coffin, stiletto, or even a simple round shape, this design will surely catch the attention of everybody.

3. Flaming Hot Glow in the Dark Nail Designs

Speaking of an eye-catching design, this glow in the dark hot wheel flame design is such a stunner that it makes for a great conversation piece. You have to use a stencil to achieve this look and three different glow in the dark nail polish colors for that ombré effect.

You can purchase nail stencils for this design, but if you can’t find one especially during this time when everybody’s required to stay home, you can totally print one yourself! Find a flame stencil online and lay it out on your computer according to your paper size.

Print it out on a sticker paper and cut accordingly. It may take you a few times to get the size of the layout right to fit on your nail, but don’t worry, you’ll get there eventually and it will all be worth it!

4. Cloud Glowing Nails


Here’s a design that might fit those who are not really into flames. Clouds are painted over your best glow in the dark nail polish and the result is a pretty design that will catch your attention every time you glance over it.

To create this look, you have to use a dotting tool to paint on the clouds. You may use a brush to paint them on but you might find it a bit more difficult if you’re inexperienced in creating nail art.

5. Louis Vuitton Nails

Who wouldn’t like Louis Vuitton painted on their nails? This glow in the dark version of the famous brand print takes your nail game to better heights with its usage of not just one glow in the dark color, but multiple.

If you’re not used to creating nail art, you might have to use a stencil for this one to ensure that the lines are clean and for the brand print to look as close to the real thing as possible. Otherwise, get at it with a steady hand and some crazy precision!

Trust, us, it’s going to be worth it in the end!

6. Light up Fingernails


A more realistic version of the hot wheels flame nail design above, this realistic flame glows in the dark like the real thing. The trick here is in the layering of your glow in the dark polish.

You don’t necessarily have to have a steady for this design, but you need to know the proper technique. The technique is to layer your polishes thinly at the bottom, and thicker towards the top.

Once you’ve achieved this look, you can marvel at your own creation that looks like it was done professionally. Your friends will surely ask you which nail salon you’ve had it done from!

7. Glitter Glow Nails

Here’s a design that seems difficult to create, but is actually otherwise. You would be needing a bunch of glitters in different sizes for this to work.

Gather your glitters of different shapes and sizes and paint on your glow in the dark nail polish. After that, sprinkle on the smallest glitters at the bottom layer.

Sprinkle on bigger glitters as you move above the layers and seal the whole thing with clear nail polish. What you will have at the end is a gorgeous look that is fitting to be in this list of top glow in the dark nail designs!

8. Two-Tone Ombré Nails


Sometimes, all you need is a simple look to make your glow in the dark nails pop. A two-tone ombré nail design is a simple yet stylish look perfect for both day and night.

You can choose any color you want for this look, and only one of them should be glow in the dark. If you choose two glow in the dark colors, you’ll just end up with a solid block of glow in the dark nails.

The ombré effect can only work if there is only one glow in the dark hue. There needs to be a transition between the plain color and the glow in the dark for the effect to take place.

You can also switch this design up by painting the glow in the dark polish at the base of your nail instead of the tip. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this design!

And that rounds up our top glow in the dark nail designs. Whether you go crazy creative or totally simple with your look, glow in the dark nails will always be fun to look at and will always be in style!
