Rosy Nails

Coffin nails are typically a strong and edgy look that can be a little overpowering if amplified with wild patterns and bright colors. You can try taking the shouting match down a few decibels by transforming your coffin nails into a lovely pink shade. This will underscore your powerful look with a calm feminine appeal. Take this to another level by using the same soft rosy pink on your lipstick as well.

Dripping in Gold

Could you achieve a more opulent look than having one or two fingers drip with solid gold? Complete the look by painting the other nails creamy white or black.

Baby Blue Nails

If your nails are already long and attractive, you may find that muting them with a pale shade of baby blue or another pastel perfects the rest of your look. This is a great way to show off your favorite collection of delicately stacked rings.

Sparkly Accent Nail

If you are going to accent your nails, make it a deep salacious and exotic one. There are rhinestones, Swarovski’s, crystals and glitter polish of all colors to choose from.

Accents are a good option to achieve a stunning special look, without hitting the gaudy and overdone zone. A great way to accent nails is to make one nail on each hand a different color from all the rest. Take this idea to another level by adding tiger stripes, plaid or lace patterns. There’s a wide variety of printed options as well.

Gold Glitter Nails

Modernistic but still very classic and totally trending today. Take your holographic metallic nails to another level with a strong shape.

When it comes to achieving the perfect nails in relation to the rest of your look, it is often best to choose a quieter look. Transparent is a perfect option to contrasting a variety of different colors and styles. Just place a strip of masking tape over a small portion of the nail when painting and pull it off just before applying the top coat. You can also make the entire look transparent as this is trendy and attractive as well.

White Tip Coffin Nails

If you want a chic look, try combining the classic French-tip with an ombre style. These have also been called baby boomer nails and are an especially sophisticated look that looks great for many occasions.
