  • Give your mani a makeover with polka dots, chevron stripes



    and mega shine! Dotting tools and nail stickers are your new BFFs. Haven't



    figured a favourite yet? Try one trend on each tip.

  • Take your love for toons to your talons and use a toothpick or thin brush to draw your favourite comic character on your tips.

  • If you're a football fan like Arshia, paint nails in the base colour of your team, and carefully trace the flag using a toothpick.

  • For an intricate pattern like this, nail stickers are your best bet. Ensure the sticker matches your nail length and width.

  • Fancy a printed mani? Start with a base coat and allow to



    dry. Then use a nail art pen to create different coloured stripes.

  • Give your tips a citrus-y tweak with neon colours and patterns. Use nail strips for precise lines.

  • After applying a base coat, place stickers at the bed of your nails to create a pyramid shape. Then paint the red, white and green, and add dots with a dotting tool.

  • Use a base coat, and create a simple-but-statement nail by applying a coat of glitter polish on one finger.

  • Paint each tip in a different shimmery colour to for a bright mani with cool texture.
