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.
Who doesn't like a sip of bubbly now and then? Better yet, when it comes in the form of a chic, colorful design you can flaunt for your friends. A perfect example is our brand new "Pop Fizz" nail art pattern — something that takes the longstanding nail art fascination with spots and dots, and adds a little sophistication and effervescence to the affair. To help you master this look, we've broken it down into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels, so you add more fizz as your skills improve. Get ready to become a pop star.
