  1. Minimal Nail Art

You'd be surprised what dots of blue and white nail polish can do for you, this minimalist take on nail art pairs well with any accessory and OOTD.

  1. Rose Gold Wire Mani

Treat your nails as a blank canvas and mix mediums, incorporate gold wire to accent your cuticles or highlight the whole finger.

  1. Shattered Glass

Cheat the glass/diamond look with iridescent paper, think cut up strips of cellophane, foil or tissue paper to get the same effect.

  1. Minimal Botanic

Dried flowers are still a popular look you can easily pull off but you can go the extra mile and add sequins and glitters before you finish it off with a topcoat.

  1. Stone Marble

Marble décor has been all over tumblr and our Pinterest feed, it wasn't a surprise when the trend caught on nail art. There's some technique and diluting involved but we think the effect is so spot on!

  1. Marc Jacobs Daisy Flower

Recreate the iconic Marc Jacobs daisy with a dab of gold polish or stud in the center, remember, dotting is your friend.

  1. Eyeshadow Chrome Nails

You can still achieve a chrome polish without mirror powder and layers of gel polish, rummage through your eye shadow collection for a chrome finish that you can dust on your nails.
