This look is one of my absolute favorites. It was inspired by the beautiful shades of blue from Malibu Beach and I really wanted to showcase the beauty of these colors on all skin tones.

When you’re having a bad day, sometimes you just need some color to brighten it up! When I designed these nails, I wanted a pastel tie-dye effect and added a geometric pattern on top of these bad boys to give them some edge!

9. Pretty in Pink

One of my favorite nail designs for the minimalist, these delicate colorful arrows highlight precision. For your #ootd, try keeping it similarly simple – basic jeans, tops, and white sneakers could be a great look.

Inspired by my brother who is an incredibly talented artist, this nail look is representative of a much large skull painting. If you have pieces of fine art you really appreciate, display that love on your nails.
