1- Velvet Tips 

Velvet nails took Instagram by storm for the holidays, but the festivities aren't over yet. Tone down the mesmerizing style (seriously, you have to see them in motion) by keeping the glitz to the tips.

2- French Manicure

Yes, the French mani is sticking around for 2021, and there are a ton of different ways to wear it. Check out our guide to the best French manicure ideas for even more inspo.

3- Mismatched Hands

For something that is a little more interesting than a classic mani but still requires zero skill, try a different shade on each hand. Make it even cooler with very of-the-moment shades like lilac and moss green. Try Essie Expressie in Get a Mauve On and Precious Car-Go! for a similar vibe. 

4- Pastel Swirls

Doesn't just looking at this metallic, pastel, ombré situation make you feel calmer? The best part is they're actually nail wraps, so it's super easy to get the same look at home.

5- Black and White Flowers

Proof that you can pack a punch without neon or glitter.
