3. TRENDY TRIANGLES
Alternating between black and white triangles creates a unique and playful spin on monochromatic nails. “Aztec and tribal patterns became popular for a while for nail art. They’re easy to do and look cool and graphic,” says Torello.
How to: If you’re a nail art novice, this look is pretty easy to achieve and all you need is striping tape. Lay down the tape in desired area of the nail. Start with the triangles along the cuticle on both hands then continue on to the triangles at the tips. Alternate using Nars Nail Polish in Back Room ($20; narscosmetics.com) and OPI Nail Lacquer in Alpine Snow ($10; macys.com) along the cuticles and the tips.
