Easy: Ombre Nails
Easy: Disco Nail
Paint four of your fingers the same shade and accent one nail – either your index or your ring finer – in a different color. Most color combination will do but some suggestions are pink with orange, tan with black, or purple with pink. Extra points if your accent finger glitters with a sparkly top coat.

Advanced: Sally Hansen Salon Effects
Bold prints and fun patterns that your hand could never create become a reality with Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips. These pre-cut nail polish strips are applied by pressing on like stickers. They come in various fun patterns – from swirls, to handwriting, to houndstooth patterns. Application takes a little getting used to, but by finger 7 you’ll be a pro.
Advanced: Colored French Manicure
Do a French manicure as you normally would, but instead choose a fun color for the tips! If you’re really feeling daring, choose a bold color for the actual nail bed as well.
