I have an enumerate inside an enumerate:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Boadilla}
\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}
   \item Item1
   \item Item2
   \begin{enumerate}
      \item Item2.
   \end{enumerate}
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}

The problem is the bullets of the inner enumerate and the outer enumerate are in same style (a ball in green), does anyone know if there are other styles of bullets available?

There are four predefined styles: ball, circle, square and default:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Boadilla}
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\begin{enumerate}
   \item Item1
   \item Item2
  \setbeamertemplate{enumerate items}[square]
   \begin{enumerate}
    \item Item2.
   \end{enumerate}
  \setbeamertemplate{enumerate items}[default]
   \begin{enumerate}
    \item Item2.
   \end{enumerate}
  \setbeamertemplate{enumerate items}[circle]
   \begin{enumerate}
    \item Item2.
   \end{enumerate}
\end{enumerate}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Appropriately redefining some other templates you can change also the colors (and fonts):

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Boadilla}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}

\begin{enumerate}
   \item Item1
   \item Item2
  \setbeamertemplate{enumerate items}[square]
  \setbeamercolor{item projected}{bg=green!70!black,fg=blue}
   \begin{enumerate}
    \item Item2.
   \end{enumerate}
  \setbeamercolor{enumerate subitem}{fg=red!80!black}
  \setbeamertemplate{enumerate items}[default]
   \begin{enumerate}
    \item Item2.
   \end{enumerate}
  \setbeamercolor{item projected}{bg=magenta!70!black,fg=white}
  \setbeamertemplate{enumerate items}[circle]
   \begin{enumerate}
    \item Item2.
   \end{enumerate}
\end{enumerate}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
