We, as a society, are entering our yee-haw era. So cow nail designs are about to be everywhere.

“With upcoming country albums by Beyoncé, Lana Del Rey, and Post Malone, it’s clear that country is having a huge moment,” says celebrity manicurist Fleury Rose. “Cowboy boots are also making an appearance amongst the most fashionable girlies, so naturally, cow print makes sense!”

Luckily, it's a design that's super easy to DIY. “Traditional cow print is a white base with black blobs,” says Rose. “You can easily achieve this with a dotting tool dipped in black polish, and then customize the look using different color combos!”

Browse through 25 cow print nail designs below.
