The 2016 nail trends you *need* to try

 

 

2015 was a big year for nails—coffins, bubbles, stilettos, oh my!—but 2016 is going to be even bigger. This year, beauty babes are moving the focus away from shapes and toward designs. Yep, nail art is coming back in a big way, and we could not be more into it. Check out our five fave new looks below.

    Outline

    This design has been all over the runways. To DIY it,  simply outline your mani with a nail art pen. Even cooler? Shake things up with a variation on the trend, like polka dots.

    Matte

    Matte lips had a huge moment in 2015, and the trend is trickling down to tips in a major way this year. The best part? It's so easy. Just get a matte top coat (like this one) and paint over any of your go-to shades.
