Summer’s biggest trend is undoubtedly nail art. From rainbow colors to crazy patterns, loud nails are everywhere. But what if you’re tired of neon, glitter, or various animal prints? What if you’ve already done the shattered look or want to stand apart from been-there-done-that stripes ’n’ polka dots? We have the perfect solution: USHER NAILS. That’s right. USHER NAILS. To be more specific, Usher by way of the bold ’n’ bright fashion label Jil Sander nails. Let us explain…

Thanks to a multicolored, striped Jil Sander sweater worn by sartorial R&B sensation Usher, and thanks to the super fun Tumblr blog Hey Nice Nails!, now you can re-create this graphic mania atop your fingertips. Words of warning: this takes polish and patience (and lots of both). So, pick a bunch of colors from your current varnish collection, get inspired by Usher’s sweater—or something out of your own closet—and wile away some weekend hours creating some serious nail art. We like this mod pixelated Jil Sander skirt for a dark and moody nail, or perhaps this floral-y marbled effect dress. Be creative! Go bananas!
