It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day. It’s a new polish.  For many women, nail art is the perfect way to subtly add some pizzazz to a look. And 2012 certainly hasn’t come up short with its latest manicure trends.

Many young women are itching to test out some of the many nail art trends that 2012 has ushered in. The most ostentatious and exciting of the trends in nail art include an “ombre” effect on the nails (in which you use similarly shaded polishes to fade the nails from dark to light), water marbling (a technique in which you swirl various colors in water to create a tie-dye effect on the nail), different-colored ring fingers, and OPI celebrity lines, just to name a few.

Whatever trend you choose to sport this coming spring, it’s safe to say that a fresh-looking manicure is a perfect way to “polish” off any fashionista’s look.
