Mani of the Week: Sealed With a Hiss
Created by: @hallebnails

Why we love it: Take your nude mani to the next level with a delicate snakeskin print — perfect for every day or a special occasion. Two shades of neutral polish impart a slight iridescence to the base, giving it dimension. Feather light strokes of purple-infused heather really nail the reptilian design.

To get the look: Use Essie Nail Polish, $9, in Wild Nude, Bare With Me and Winning Streak.

Why we love it: Valentine's Day is right around the corner and we're enamored with this modern mani that uses all the love-inspired shades. Whether you have a date this year or are flying solo, you're sure to adore this cute, fresh take on heart nails.

To get the look: Use OPI Nail Lacquer,$10.50, in Lisbon Wants Moor OPI, No Turning Back From Pink Street, OPI On Collins Ave., and Black Onyx.

Why we love it: We think bright, cheery nails make any day better. Just imagine looking down at these taffy-colored stripes for an instant mood boost. So long Monday blues.

To get the look: Use Deborah Lipmann Nail Polish,$18-$20, in Pink Cadillac, Sweet Pea and Out of the Woods.

Mani of the Week: Colorful Cuticles
Created by: @flowidity108

Why we love it: Who says you need to paint the entire nail to make a statement? We think these negative space nails with tiny flashes of lavender and black are equal parts bold, bad-ass and straight-up lovely.

To get the look: Use Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear,$2.99, in Lacey Lilac and Black Out.

Mani of the Week: '80s Rockstar Vibes
Created by: @so_nailicious

Why we love it: Part zig-zag, part lightning bolt and a splash of pop art, this manicure is loud and gorgeous. If you were an '80s or '90s kid, it may also remind you of cartoon rockstar extraordinaire, Jem and the Holograms.

To get the look: Use Orly Nail Lacquer,$6.50-$8.50, in Confetti, Crisp White, and Jet Black.

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.
