4. Metallic Nails

Or go all out and ask your manicurist for a minx manicure for a super high metallic shine. Love this look!

5. All Out Nail Art

Can’t make up your mind? Why not have your manicurist create a fun, but cohesive, look on each nail. Love that some of these look like little tuxedos!

    Love em all. I’d have to pick the black with gold glitter if I had to just go with one ;). I miss painting my nails! I used to never go a day without nail polish but with all the crafting these days, the only thing you’ll see on my nails is paint and glue :P. I’m working on that asap!
