If there ever was a time to experiment with nail polish, that time is now. There are no rules -- anything goes. You can go super dark, very light, bright colors, or a mix of all of it. This summer there was a lot of bright green, bold turquoise, and periwinkle blue and you can wear those all through the year, but the look everyone should try now is painting their own nails as if it was a spa manicure.
Almost anyone can do it, and if your hand isn't too steady, ask a friend. The look doesn't have to be perfect either. Like in this photo, try a light turquoise, let dry. Paint the tips gold, then use a coral red to add dots by dipping a toothpick in the polish.
Love this look? I have some more ideas, too.
