No woman is fully dressed without the perfect manicure: it's the final touch, the must-have accessory to any outfit. And today, spectacular nails mean more than a coat of pink polish. It's fashion art, with a world of fabulous colors, unique patterns, and gorgeous embellishments to choose from. These 35 designs are eye-catching and ultra-stylish, whether you're looking to liven up an everyday look or get glam for a special occasion. Novices needn't worry, either, because every project-from sparkling Champagne Chic to the wintry, Christmasy Snappy Snowflakes-includes easy-to-follow instructions and handy step-by-step photos, and most are really simple to create. Have a spooky Halloween with black-and-white cobwebbed nails; hail the red-white-and blue and stars-and-stripes forever with Positively Patriotic; and celebrate the coming of spring with vintage fancy flowers. Go wild with animal prints, like leaping leopard spots or zebra zigzags on your "claws." And even if you can't make it to Hawaii, your nails can, with designs featuring the island's famed hibiscus. Whether you're choosing elegant, wedding-ready pearly bubbles or playful retro dots and fun characters, every pattern here makes an unforgettable statement. Tips on nail care, products, and basic manicures (including a French one) help you keep your hands in tip-top shape. One thing's for sure: with this art on your nails, you'll never want to wear gloves again!
