If you're looking for a more dramatic nail look, the punk-inspired patterns and bold colors of this trend are right up your alley. "Debbie Harry meets Rihanna in this rock-star nail trend of nearly-neon shades in daring, psychedelic designs," says Arnold. "Bold checkerboards, dangerous ombres, and electric halo nails are energized with flashes of bright pink and primary reds, greens, and midnight blues." To score this cool checkerboard effect seen at Nicole Miller, Arnold says to paint two coats of bright pink polish over the entire nail. Dip a detailing brush in navy blue polish and create a cross in the center of the nail, then fill in the opposing squares with blue polish. Finish with a shimmery top coat to add a bit of depth to the look.
