Paintbox 1Just having one color on your nails is so 2014.

Nail art has gained huge traction this year, with designers like Rebecca Minkoff parading it down the runway, blogger Sincerely Jules rocking it with an armful of jewelry, and, of course, everyone and their mother posting nail art selfies on Instagram.
