Smiley face nails are a fun a carefree nail art design! This simplistic design is not so simple that it won’t remind you of those casual and carefree days of childhood. Everyone can benefit from some cute smiley face nails from time to time, in my opinion. It’s a nice way to remind yourself not to take things so seriously and to have a little fun every once in a while. Of course, smiley face nail art really isn’t appropriate for a fancy party or business meeting, but it’s great for a casual get together or relaxing date night at home.
As far as difficulty goes, smiley face nails are pretty simple to create. Just paint some simple polka dot eyes on and a cute mouth on bright yellow nails for a classic smiley face nail design. You can also switch things up a bit and get a little crazy with the mouth and expressions, or even use some other bright colors.
