What I love the most about nail art that there’s so much room for experiments! Any of these beautiful nail designs can be easily simplified. For instance, you can do just one accent nail instead of full set. If you’re brave enough to attempt a full on freehand manicure, I guarantee you will love the result!
Now over to you!
Which manicure from the above compilation is your favourite? Will you dare to try any?
