I think it is time to change that. We all have those moments where we’ve been used to doing the same thing over and over again, and feel the most comfortable in it just because it became our routine, but isn’t the whole point of living your life just to experiment and have fun? So will you step out of your comfort zone? Let’s do baby steps first, shall we? This cute and not too vibrant burgundy manicure could be just for you.

How to:

After painting your nails in dark red, you draw tiny dots with the smallest precise brush on the corners and apply one flower sticker in the middle. You can browse through your local store, or even find the stickers extra cheap on eBay.


8. That glow

Since not all women like that matte effect, we need to mention that these nails are still trending!       If you want that shine it should be for a wedding day, prom, birthday or graduation.There are no rules when it comes to beauty, but preferably the longer the nail, the shinier.


9. Ombre
