As our resident Barbie Margot Robbie once said, “All your mannerisms change easily when you have inch-long acrylic nails.” That also goes for nails that are sporting some seriously stylish designs. There’s nothing like a fresh set to make you feel like you can handle anything life has to through at you.

Like, I’m personally obsessed with this spooky nail set, perfect for a The Nightmare Before Christmas party.
Or if you’re on the girlier side, this Philly-based nail tech’s got you covered with this heart-lovin’ mani. On top of her amazing sets, we’re living for the two-toned black-and-blond hair moment Huilin is sporting.
