The term “clear nail polish” usually doesn’t evoke very much excitement—until now. Thanks to the clear nail designs we’ve been seeing all over Instagram lately, we’re discovering how majorly versatile—and yes, exciting—clear polish can actually be. Between bejeweled creations and negative-space nail art, clear polish is the perfect blank slate for both crazy-imaginative designs and super-subtle ones—and that’s the beauty of it.
If you prefer polish, you can rest assured knowing a clear base will help your manicure go the extra mile. And the possibilities are endless (and just as practical) with gel, dip powder, and acrylics, too.
