You can partner it with your daily outfit or the dress you’ll be wearing on a party. You can choose your favorite color or a new and trendy one to experiment with your look.
But even when these simple nail colors are still in vogue, nothing can be much trendier these days other than nail art. It can go from simple works of art to the most complicated designs.

Aftercare is also important if you want to keep you nail art longer. There are hardening nail polishes which coats your nail art and protects it from getting chipped. But apart from using such products, try not to get into too much manual work. Usually these kinds of jobs tend to get your nail chipped earlier than you want it too. Avoid getting it soaked in water for a long time, all of the time as well. The water tend to soften the cuticle even the protective colorless coat which could make it easier for the polish and the design to chip off.
