We normally don't care for confetti, but when it's replicated on our nails, we feel like partying. When we found this on Essie.com, we knew it was the perfect nail look if we wanted something fun that wasn't glitter.
This nail look from Miss Pop (modeled on Allure Editor in Chief Michelle Lee) is just cool and pretty much sums up what we tell ourselves everyday.
Celebrity manicurist Alicia Torello proves to us that matte and metallic make for a lovely combination. The star decal is also just such a lovely touch.
We can't help but be mesmerized by the intricate detail that Joey Lin for Vanity Projects created for this nail look. You'll definitely standout in the best way possible with these.
The half-moon nail trend is nothing new. Elevate it with a gold metallic strip right across the middle of it, like seen here from Paintbox.
OPI calls this look the "Ice Climber." Use four different shades of blue to make a cool color-block look.
