There are many trends when it comes to nail care and color. Some of the best trends to date are the gel nails, acrylic polishes, and bedazzling effects that enhance the nail and encourage your own style. With all the designs, the great thing about nails is that you can change them every couple weeks and see what suits you best according to season, mood, and activity.

The best trends for these nail polishes are currently the hombre, where the nail starts as one color and ends a different color, blending in the middle. Usually the colors are dark to light or light to dark.
2. Acrylic nail polish
