An accent nail isn't necessarily as self-explanatory as you might think; for those of you expecting a nail with a French twang, you're about to be sorely disappointed.
So, what is it?
Incorporating an accent nail into your manicure quite literally means putting an accent on one nail, i.e. throwing it into the limelight, by painting it or even decorating it a different way to the other nails on the same hand. It's one of the easiest ways to make your manicure totally your own whilst having a lot of fun playing around with different colors.
If you're getting married or just got engaged, you could always do an accent nail on your ring finger. If you have a different kind of ring on a different finger that you want to show off (post sale shopping, for example) do the same!
We already mentioned using a different color but why stop there? You could use a nail sticker, do a geometric design or even add some 3D jewels into the mix to create an eye-catching accent nail to really help show off your personality.
The beautiful thing about this nail art trick is that it's all about doing what you want, how you want.
