Nail trends come and go all the time. But sometimes, certain nail trends pop up that we hope never go away. These nail trends are usually modern, sophisticated, and a little funky all at the same time.

1. 3d French tips
This nail trend is a modern twist on a traditional design, and we’re big fans. Whether you choose to go with muted shades of beige and brown or multiple shades of neon yellow, 3d French tips are sophisticated, artistic, and stunning.
