How to Compliment a Girl’s Nails

The reality is that ladies love to be noticed, they enjoy being the center of attention, and only a tiny few introverted girls find it embarrassing to be the center of attention.
But if she doesn’t want you to notice or compliment her nails, she probably wouldn’t wear such lovely colorful nail art, would she?

Every man compliments a woman’s appearance and body shape, and women are probably tired of being told “you look beautiful” every now and again.

So if you particularly mention how nice their nail art is, it will definitely sound sincere which will make them see you as a bit different than other guys who only talk about looks and body shapes.

Why Should You Compliment Her Nails?

When it comes to hair, skincare, manicure, and pedicure, girls spend a lot of time and effort to get them beautifully done.

And not many men pay attention to details to the extent of complimenting something that might easily go unnoticed as her nail.

So if you compliment her nails, you will definitely stand out as a scrupulous person.

You should keep in mind that making a statement isn’t the best way to compliment someone, and it would be awkward to simply say, “Nice nails,” and then walk away.

Instead, if you’re interested in her and want to start a conversation with her, you could ask a few open-ended questions, such as where she had the manicure done or how she chose the stunning color combination.

Here’s a Convo Example

You: Hey, your nails are cute.

She: (smiles) Thank you.

You: Are you a nail artist?

She: “No, I had them done at the salon.”

You: Alright, those are really cool.

She: Thank you.

Another Example

You: Wow, those nails are amazing; how did you come up with such colorful art?

She: Thanks, I got the art style from a fashion magazine.

You: Wow, that’s a really unique style; do you have a digital copy of the magazine? I’d like to send it to my sister as well; her birthday is coming up soon.

She: No, I don’t, it’s a paper book

You: Any ideas on how to get the book? I’d really love to have it.

She: I got mine from…

Having this brief conversation with her will have a greater impact on her than just passing a compliment and walking away.

However, don’t push the conversation to the point of awkwardness. Save the rest of the conversation for another time.

If you are brief and concise enough to end the conversation on a high note, she would probably be the one to even say hello when she next sees you, and then you may carry on from there by saying or doing things that will pique her interest in you and encourage her to want to spend more time with you.

How to be Effective with your Compliment

The freshly polished and likely colorful nails are the ones you want to admire and compliment not the natural, unpainted, colorless nails because if you do it will seem weird and she will wonder “what’s the difference between mine and yours,” and some may even assume you’re a paraphiliac type of guy.

However, if her nails are really nice, give her the compliment and brighten her day; otherwise, if they’re not so lovely, don’t.

Let it go; compliments should be sincere; if you force them, they could come across as sarcastic or offensive to her.

Another key to effectively complimenting her is to do so sparingly; don’t go around complimenting everything she wears from head to toe.

Too many compliments may also flop and become annoying, so keep the compliment as minimal as possible while still sounding natural.
