Whether you're a nail art newbie or a self-taught pro with a striper brush, you'll love painting on this simple, yet striking pattern, reminiscent of piano keys. "My inspiration for the nail looks were skyscrapers and windows. I also have a fascination with bold vertical lines," says manicurist Gina Edwards, who created this look. While it offers visual impact, the design's clean lines give it a modern edge that doesn't feel overwhelming. Bonus: The thin stripes have an elongating effect on nails. Check out the steps, then pick up a brush - here's to nailing your next #ManiMonday!
