While we know those halcyon days of mini masterpieces on our nails are reportedly over, we're not quite ready to give up the nail-art ghost. Though we've accepted that we won't be drawing floral landscapes on our digits in the upcoming seasons, there are still times that wearing one color on our tips doesn't do it for us.
