I went through an acrylic nail phase, then ditched the look for more natural gel manicures. I even have my own OPI gel manicure set from Sephora that I love. However, I love staying on top of trends and changing up my look every once in awhile. After seeing lots of inspirations on Pinterest and WeHeartIt, I decided to go for an almond nail look with a fancy design.

I found an adorable creation that featured a nude nail polish with similar designs. I have to credit the awesome nail artists at Vicky Shiny Nails in Staten Island, New York for hooking up my nails.

I decided to swap the nude for black and white, adding the lines with gold glitter. I got these nails done for my mom’s surprise 50 birthday party, in which I wore a black lace over nude colored strapless dress from Hot Miami Styles.

I absolutely felt so glam in the dress and the nails completed the look. I love the Kylie Jenner inspired almond shape, and while I usually go for more natural styles, it has been really fun to get creative on my fingers.

Here is how they came out! Share pics of your nails in the comments below!
