Human creativity has no limits (unless it's Hollywood and big money is on the line – then creativity stops dead). And nothing that we do is safe from creativity's touch. That is great, because without creativity our lives would be bland and gray, like British skies all day, every day.

One way to get creative is try something new with your manicure. You can go all sorts of wild on your nails. Patterns, colors, anything else you can come up with – it all fits on your nails. Here, look at some examples!
