Silver studs and a sleek matte finish give any nail color a modern edge. When working with a group of stud embellishments, use a clear gel or nail glue to secure them to the nail. Top coat will not provide enough adhesion to keep the embellishments in place.

For those looking for something more daring, amp up any chrome mani with dangling chain accents. A cool way to add new meaning to the term “heavy metal,” nail piercings are not for the faint of heart and are best left to the professionals. Mix up the look with a modern nail shape and hints of negative space.
