Have you ever had one of those days where you just can’t decide on what nail color to wear? We do, ALL THE TIME. But, rather than play eeny-meeny-miney-mo with polish, we discovered a great way to wear multiple colors at once that's both fun and ultra-chic: The Gradation Manicure. This type of mani utilizes five nail polishes from the same color family, worn in a gradient across the hand from light to dark. The bonus is that you can make it as subtle or dramatic as you desire (so it won't look too juvenile), and the best part is that you really can’t mess it up. The key is to make sure you're pairing colors that work together.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
