11. Vanilla

Although I wouldn’t describe what we’re looking at here as vanilla, it still looks quite cool. Especially the next-to-middle finger with its intricate design.

13. Mother of pearl

The accents are calm and classy, while the polish chosen is quite loud and it contrasts perfectly.

14. Grey ombré

Another ombre look, but not like the one you’ve become so used to seeing. It’s spread across each individual nail, to create a rather unique look.

15. Ruffian

This final look turns a classic French mani on its head to create an equally stunning design.
