Nude and Lovely

Long, oval nude nails have been in and we are still loving’ em. This acrylic nail design is not  going out of style any time soon. It’s sleek, chic and subtle.

Licorice Nails

Black oval nails have been a great go-to. It’s edgy and a little daring, but once you get used to them you will stick with it.

French Ombre

One of our favorite acrylic nail designs is the french ombre. It’s just so pretty and you can never go wrong. This design looks best and natural on long, slightly squared nails.

Gloomy Grey

No one likes a gloomy day, but when it comes to nails, grey is the way to go. It’s not too dark nor too loud–it’s just right.

Classic Matte

Matte colors have made a strong debut and you will be seeing these acrylic nail designs more often. Dark mattes, such as black, dark greys and a blues are trending (and our fave!).

Better with Bling

Everything always looks better with a little sparkle and shimmer, this includes acrylic nail designs. The way to do it is to add the bling to one or two finger nails.

Mix it Up

Painting your nails all one color is way too boring! Add a color or two or even add some art to a couple of nails for a nice punch. Being inconsistent isn’t always a bad thing. Live a little!

Metallica

Yasss, hunni! Metallics are in and they are here to stay. Well, at least for 2017. There’s just something so neat about metallics. Because of the formula, the shine and glimmer tends to last longer.

Striking Stripes

Adding some stripes to a few of your nails will really make them pop. Whether it’s vertical, or horizontal, you should really try it. You can achieve this look with a nail pen–it’s that easy.

  • Polishperfect: Oval nails will never go out off style. My personal favorite is black with red tips. I also like an interesting print on the ring finger.
