9 New Nail Trends for 2017

Kim Kardashian showed off matte chrome nails with a twist. Adding a bit of flair to her usual talon-long stiletto nails with pointy tips, Kimmy went ahead and pierced her spiky nails. Say what?! On Snapchat she displayed the results of one epic manicure that ended with hoop piercings on the end of her freshly painted digits. So, if the Kardashians are taking their fashion to fingers, what's next in the world of beautifying the hands? Manicures with jewels? Painted portraits pinkies? Henna nails?

Here's a roundup of what to expect and what to try in the world of nails for 2017.

1. Pierced Nails
Whether shiny, matte or glossed, pierced nails are the new way to accessorize fingertips. A hoop or charm off the end of freshly manicured fingers is sure to add a bit of glam to any ordinary polish. Tutorial HERE

2. Multi-Colored Nails
Forget a pretty pink OPI manicure or a boring red Essie paint job. 2017 is all about nails with attitude. Multi-colored nails are fun and flirty--just pack on the polish, apply a few gold studs and rock those pretty digits.

3. Ombre Nails
Notice-me nails are often bright and unique and ombre fits the bill. Ombre nails can be glossed with any paint colors and offer a pretty faded out effect. Tutorial HERE
