Your own DIY dippin dots! To get this look, dip a bobby pin into your accent color and dot away.

3) Multicolored Mani

This multicolored look is perfect if you don’t want to deal with the details. Pick complimenting colors and switch it up nail to nail!

4) Feeling MOOdy

From cowboys to supermodels, this 90s trend looks great on just about everyone. Whether you opt for the whole hand or just an accent nail, get the look by using a bobby pin to make blobs in different shapes and sizes on a white base coat. 

5) Fine Line

If you’re looking for something more minimal, this chic, clean line design is perfect for you. Tip: to keep your lines straight, put a piece of tape on your nails after the base coat dries and paint along the edge.

7) You’re a Gem

Nail gems, pearls, and rhinestones are the perfect accents for your mani (and easy too!). Take a tiny dot of nail glue and stick your gems directly on your dried nails! After, apply top coat around the base of your gems so they stay in place.
