Every day doesn’t have to be Groundhog Day for your nails. Whether we're heading to the salon or painting them ourselves, here are five trends we still love (really). 

Nail Art Go for a subtle design, like a few graphic lines or a French manicure with a tip painted one shade lighter than the base.

Muted Metallics The shiners have a certain fierce factor that can seamlessly go from lunch meeting to date night.

Short and Square When trimmed short and neatly squared, your nails beckon to be painted a bright, bold shade like cherry red or electric pink.

No Chip Gel manicures are great and all, but we prefer to opt for lacquers that are less harsh than UV gel and have more staying power than basic polish.

Sheer You can't go wrong with a coat of pink-tinged polish, like Dior Nail Glow ($25), for an (almost) au naturael look.
