16 Stars’ Intriguing Nail Designs That Were More Eye-catching Than Their Outfits

The history of manicure began in the early 20th century. Society’s stereotypical thinking did not allow for the painting of nails in bright colors, so the most common shades of nail polish at the time were pastel and transparent. However, over time, attitudes toward manicures have changed dramatically. Now, brighter nail polish colors and bolder designs are not only standard procedure, but can also be a key part of any fashion look.
