Trend to Try: Nail Art

Runway: Black and white polka dots danced their way across mid-length almond-shaped nails at Kate Spade. The pattern single-handedly gave nail art a graceful twist and embodied the collection’s femininity.

Real life: Painting polka dots can be tricky for those who didn’t score A’s in art class.
