Fellow nail art lovers: You know you’ve made the right choice when you feel a tiny jolt of happiness every time you look down at your hands. Other times...not so much. So make the decision-making easy on yourself by going with one of our ten favorite designs from the year—just in time for all of your holiday parties.
Some freehanded lines and a cute little dot? You’ve got this.
Wherein your nail beds are teeny canvases for MoMA-worthy art.
Like your beloved striped shirt, this goes with everything.
Incredibly elongating on your tips (and the perfect complement to all of the '70s fashion trends that we’re wearing now).
Scalloped French Mani
Plain French mani: old lady. Scalloped French tips: just ladylike.
U-Shaped French Tips
Another easy way to upgrade a regular French mani? Curved edges in unexpected colors like taupe or burgundy.
Line the edges up with painter’s tape and fill them in with your favorite color.
Or liven up a neutral manicure by dipping just the edges of your nails in a contrasting shade.
