I’m not sure if I’m one of the few people who had this memory as a kid, but I loved getting things with my initials on them.

I loved having jewelry, books, or clothes that had a pretty ‘A’ printed on them. Something about it just made me feel happy and special. 

However, once we get older, we stop wearing things with our initials on them and don’t enjoy a little personalized moment as much. But what if we started bringing that back?

Sure, it may be a little cringe to walk around in a tee shirt with your initials on it or a monogrammed bag, but there is a more subtle way to incorporate your initials into your everyday style. 

One of today’s latest nail trends is getting ‘initial nails.’ This is a fun way to get a little more personal with your everyday manicure and take some pride in your name. 

Some people may see having your initials spelled out on your fingernails as tacky, but it can actually be really cute, classy, and fun. 

You can use several nail themes and ideas for your initial nails. Here are a few to get you started!

Floral Initials

For this look, you can start with a nude nail base and then have your nail technician draw out the first letter of your first name in white on one nail, like your thumb or pointer finger. Then, you can have them delicately create some floral designs around the white letter for a sweet, pretty theme.
