Who says you gotta wear one shade of nail polish?

Who says you gotta wear one shade of nail polish?The best beauty trends let you have it all, and that's certainly the case with some of this summer's hottest nail polish styles. Two-toned, color-blocked and wacky French tips like you've never seen before are all teaming up to make this season one of the hottest nail-biting adventures yet.

"If you're tearing your hair out choosing between two colors, don't bother – add a little whimsy to your wardrobe and take them both!" StyleList.com recommends.

The website suggests alternating two similar shades (such as bright red and fuchsia) for a slightly jarring look – or throwing subtlety out the window by painting each hand two completely contrasting shades.

In other mani/pedi news, French manicures are due to be a big hit this summer, but watch for hands with unusually-colored tips (think fire engine red, tangerine, aqua and even black) – paired with either a neutral or a contrasting base.

You can also choose to let one finger be the sore thumb (ha, ha, get it?) by painting one nail on each hand a stand-out color.
