If you’re a Disney devotee, you likely already have a ton of merchandise to prove your superfan status, but why stop there? Extend your love for Disney down to your manicure with your very own Disney nails.

Whether you’ve already booked your next Disney trip or you’re bingeing the classics at home in your princess pajamas, Disney nail art is the perfect way to pay tribute to your favorite movies and characters. You can opt for something simple, like the colors worn by your favorite character or you can go big with a unique, hand-painted design on each finger. You could go with traditional mouse ears with playful decorations, the entire “Toy Story” gang, or a cool lineup of the infamous villains. From long, stiletto-shaped nails to short manicures, Disney nail designs are guaranteed to look amazing on any nail shape and length.

When it comes to Disney nail art ideas, there are infinite possibilities. With so many iconic references to choose from, your biggest challenge will be picking just one. (Pssst, you can also pick more than one — 10, to be exact.) We love a good nostalgia-inducing manicure, but you can’t go wrong with simple but effective Disney nail stickers.
