6. Accent nail

Going for an eye-catching design on all 10 nails may be too daring for women with a subtle fashion sense, and this is where the accent nail trend comes in handy. By going for one or two accent nails on each hand with a striking design, glitter, of vibrant colour, you easily upgrade your manicure and your whole look.
