Getting a manicure is fun, if you're into that sort of thing. I am, sometimes – right now, I'm trying to stop biting my nails again. I quit for two years or something, but now I'm back to gnawing my nails every time I get nervous. Sad state of affairs. Trolling my Insta feed for next-level manicures helps, though. Seeing all those gorgeous designs and long, graceful fingernails is enough to inspire me to quit again – and even if I can't quit biting, these to-die-for manicures are worthy of admiration!

1 Matte Black
Matte manicures look just as fierce as matte lips, in my not so humble opinion. This manicure is also fierce – it goes so well with the jewelry!
2 A Disney Dream
As if the polka dots aren't utterly charming by themselves, Minnie Mouse is hiding out on the accent nail, and she is bringing it.
3 A Little Lace
I think I've found my next manicure, as a matter of fact. This is so pretty!
4 The Sweetest Mani
Sprinkles, cupcakes, frosting, and even a cherry on top – what could be better?
5 French Flair
Here's a lovely little French take on the lace look. I'm certainly in love.
6 Pretty in Pink
A simple pink shade can look so chic, don't you think?
7 A Magical Manicure
There's a lot going on here, but it's worthwhile to take in all the details.
8 You're a Daisy if You do
These nails are beyond charming. I cannot even imagine the skill it took to make those flowers.
9 Subtle Color
You wouldn't think grey and beige could look so pretty. It's a lovely natural look, though. Makes me rethink my opinion of greige.
10 Mirror Mirror on Your Nails
Pulling off a polish like this is hard. It's way too easy to accidentally smudge it.
11 Visual Intrigue
I love that all the decals are in different spots. I also love that ring.
12 Bejeweled and Beguiled
In the first place, the base color here is stunning – fun, vivid, eye-catching. In the second places, the jeweled accents are perfection!
13 All That Glitters
Here's an interesting idea – you're not stuck with one color, and you get more than one accent nail. What do you think?
I wholeheartedly approve of the rainbows.
This manicure reminds me of The Great Gatsby.
All of these decals are adorable.
17 Never Pick a Pattern
Why pick one? Go with complementary colors and splash out with a different pattern for every nail if you want.
Do you have a go-to manicure or do you prefer painting your nails using a new design every time?
