Move aside perfectly polished tips and intricate designs. The latest nail art trend to sweep Instagram is wabi sabi, or intentionally mismatched nails. Borrowing from Japanese tradition, wabi sabi is a lifestyle aesthetic that's about embracing the beauty of all things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.

We've seen countless iterations of the trend—from dainty rainbow dots to split-color designs. (Our personal favorite? A dreamy pastel sampling of different shades on different fingers as shown above.)

Bottom line: There is no right or wrong way to do it. Channel your inner child and have some fun.
