Created by: @smithandcult

Why we love it: Looking for something a little festive in time for Thanksgiving that doesn't require painting pumpkins or turkeys on your nails? These demure nude nails with deep red dots along the nailbed look superchic and are simple to DIY. When the big day comes, you can spend less time worrying about your nails and more time focusing on the delicious foods you are going to eat.

To get the look: Use Smith & Cult Nailed Lacquer,$18, in Ghost Edit and Lovers Creep.

Why we love it: The mix of colors, textures and finishes in this mani is bright and cheery for fall. The statement cable-knit design on the middle finger is surrounded by matte grey, mauve and glittery rose gold -- a combination that's sure to add a little extra pizazz to your favorite fuzzy sweater and boot combo.

To get the look: Use Kiara Sky Nail Lacquers,$8.50, in Road Trip and Pure White. Le Chat Nobility Nail Lacquer,$5, in Bridesmaids. Red Carpet Manicure Nail Lacquer, $13, in Glasses Up!. And Vetro Gel Matte Top Coat,$15.

Why we love it: The holidays will be here before we know it -- and with them come fabulous soirees and opportunities to display your affinity for all things sparkly. Whether you're looking for holiday party inspiration or you just really, really love glitter, this chic, celebratory design is equal parts festive and sophisticated. Either way, vibrant diagonal tips on top of nude nails are perfect for a holiday fête or an everyday celebration of the little things -- like a fresh manicure.

To get the look: Use Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Baby Love, $18, topped with Across the Universe, $20, and accented with colorful nail foils.

Mani of the Week: Good vs. Evil Halloween Nails
Created by: @goodygirl7

Why we love it: Sometimes you just don't have time, willpower or (let's be real) skill to give yourself an intricate, freehand manicure. Just in time for Halloween, NCLA makes looking festive easy with their darling Disney collab -- the Good vs. Evil nail wrap collection. With eight different sets to choose from, you can mix and match wraps inspired by characters like Ariel, Ursula, Cruella de Vil, 101 Dalmations, Snow White, the Evil Queen, Maleficent and Sleeping Beauty. Applied like a sticker between your favorite base and topcoats and filed down to the size of your own nails, they couldn't be easier to apply and look like you totally nailed this year's Halloween costume.

To get the look: Use NCLA Nail Wraps,$17.95, in Evil Queen and Snow White.

Mani of the Week: Delicate Leaf Designs
Created by: @sense_hong_

Why we love it: Winter white nails make an impact with cold months ahead. Black foliage motifs on a creamy white base creates a dreamy combination, paired with your favorite fuzzy sweater. The stark contrast makes the designs pop, yet the colors are neutral enough to pair with most anything.

To get the look: Use Cirque Colors Nail Lacquers,$12.50, in Don't Forget the Cannoli and Memento Mori.

Nail art is one of those photogenic beauty trends that we could look at all day long. Somehow, scrolling through photos of nail art designs whipped up by nail art icons like Deborah Lippmann, Jin Soon and Paintbox is simply addictive whether we plan to execute the nail design ideas or not.

That's why we're bringing you our #ManicureMonday series -- where we show you the simple nail art, endless nail design ideas and other ridiculously pretty nails that we're finding and loving.
