Next, we have a stunning and chic way to wear silver. For this look, the nails are nude and each one has a silver holographic tip. There is also white stripe down the center of each nail. This is a trendy way to wear silver and it is quite low-key. This is great for those who like to try new nail art but don’t like anything too bold.

Silver is so versatile so one day it can be edgy and trendy and the next it can be soft and elegant. This mani is very chic. Some of the nails feature French ombre.
