With the popularity of eccentric, thematic nail art rapidly declining (the jury's still officially out on this one), it seems as if everyone has started trying to find other interesting ways to ensure their digits still stand out. Our recommendation? Keep it simple by polishing them in an utterly eye-popping shade that's completely unexpected. Instead of pink, black, nude, and cherry, try painting your tips...
...A COOL CORNFLOWER BLUE HUE, like actress Kat Dennings. It's so incredibly complementary on every complexion, but really pops against dark-colored clothing. Try: Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Cameo, $23
...A STUNNING STARK WHITE, like actress Willa Holland. In case you missed the memo, white is the new black. Countless celebrities have whitened up their tips this year, and we're more than sure this blank tips trend will continue on throughout the remainder of the year. After all, 'winter is coming.' (Pardon the Game of Thrones pun!) Try: Zoya Nail Polish in Christinna, $8
...A GORGEOUS GLITTERY GOLD, like singer Miley Cyrus. Think of it as fancy (but affordable) finger bling! No matter how dressed down you are, metallic nails instantly jazz up any look. Try: Incoco Nail Polish Appliques in 24 Karat, $7.99
