It doesn’t get more glam than a gemstone-filled manicure, trust us. Not only are these nails totally customizable, but they’re also guaranteed to give you confidence all night long. 

Elevated French Tips 

If you’ve been binge-watching a certain historical drama, chances are you’ve been inspired by the glitz, the glam and, of course, the pearls. Amp up a classic French tip manicure by adding cute little pearls to each nail. 

Romantic Nail Art
