They look like actual chrome shaped onto the ends of her fingers. Shiny, gold and easy to check your reflection with.

It’s like pearls on your nails. They’re just pink but they’re never. just. pink.


Matte Nails

If iridescent nails aren’t quite your thing, then there’s always the option of going the exact opposite with matte nails.

Ulla Johnson, Spring 2016


Most matte nails tote black nails for a grunge look, but these nails are a dusty pink that’s appropriate for the office.


Tie Dyed

Haute Hippie debuted at Rebecca Minkoff, Spring 2016

The 2-tone and 3-tone trend has now crossed over to nails with this look. But, you know, if they used green instead of orange, it could totally have been a mermaid-inspired nail look!


Classic French Manicures with a twist

Instead of just outlining the tips, this look goes all around the entire nail.

I simply can’t imagine how you can paint that on your own without going over the lines.


Many-layered French Mani by OPI’s Alicia Torello debuted on Kate Hudson at Met Gala 2016


It’s looking like a few crescent moons going on here, or perhaps just a few french manis on top on french manis for a very futuristic look.


Read Between the Lines

Thin lines debuted at Marissa Webb Spring 2016


A vertical stripe up each nail makes them look elongated. And the monochromatic combo just stands the test of time.


Tanya Taylor Spring 2016


In fashion, horizontal stripes make you look fat. Doesn’t seem to matter for nails with this look. Maybe the key is balancing between thicker and thinner stripes.


Which is your favourite nail look? Have you tried them out before? Let me know!

Much Love,
