1. The New French Mani
This has been all the rage lately. Taking a classic French manicure and bringing a little twist to it. It’s been seen on the runway and every girl is now rocking this style! Instead of the French white at the top being curved with your nail shape, this French manicure has the white part concave inward. It gives it a more modern feel to it.

Ombre Nails have been seen almost everywhere with it gaining more and more popularity. It’s classic gradient effect looks so aesthetically pleasing whether it’s on gel nails, or on stilettos. It’s a look that doesn’t seem to go out of style. Whether you stick to a simple pink and white ombre, or you decide to take some neon colors and express yourself, the diffusion of the two colors leavings a very clean sophisticated look.
3. Picasso Nails

4. Water-color Tie Dye Nails
These nail designs sometimes gain popularity after a celebrity is seen wearing them. That was exactly the case with these watercolor tie dye nails. Kyle Jenner posted a picture rocking this look, and more and more people are knowing beginning to rock it as well. These tie dye nails don’t have to be done only with neon colors, however. If you want to get into the winter/fall seasonal theme, you can do it with darker colors or get into more a rustic vibe with some burnt oranges and reds.
5. Neon Stars
Another look inspired by Kylie Jenner, the addition of encapsulated stars within acrylic nails seems have taken with younger girls.

For a more fall/winter look, instead of having neon stars, you can just place white stars and it would have the same youthful effect.

No one’s complaining though because it’s such a cute way to spice up an outfit, or in general make a statement.
7. Chromatic Nails
Chromatic nails are one of those nail designs that live past the summer. Everyone aspires to match their nails up with the seasons, but sometimes you just have to break the rules a little, and that’s when chromatic nails come out to play. It gives off a very grunge hipster vibe that I can see paired up perfectly with a leather jacket on a night out.

Whatever you decide to do, the avant grande aspect to it will remain and intrigue others.
