Nail Art's New Wave: Grab The Hot, New "Burning Love" Pattern

No doubt, nail art is seriously having a moment. But we're already at a point where certain patterns have become passé (accent finger anyone?). To keep your tips covered in fresh, fantastic looks, we've compiled Nail Art's New Wave, a collection of our favorite new patterns inspired by super-talented manicurist Julie Kandalec and Maybelline New York's Color Show Nail Lacquer – plus hints on how to execute them perfectly.
Seems just a couple of years back, you could slap a few lines on your nails and the whole world would ooh and aah. Nowadays, you need a lot more pizazz to impress. Scorching hot with shots of jet black, our "Burning Love" design certainly has enough fire to make heads turn, and because we've broken this pattern into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced versions, it's one you can rock no matter your skill level.
