OMBRÉ

The look you love for hair works just as beautifully for nails. Bonus: Stick with Creamsicle colors for the ultimate summer vibes.

MODERN

Treat your nails like mini canvases with a Mondrian-inspired design. White, black and red make for one chic palette.

COLORBLOCK

Can’t choose one color? No problem. Pick two or three and layer them on from light to dark.

EMBELLISHED CUTICLES

Here’s a novel concept: Play up the very thing you’ve been trying to hide all this time. We love the effect in a pretty silver or gold.

GEOMETRIC

Muted colors keep this bold design from feeling too loud. Try not to stare at your nails all day long.
