Book Review: 500 Nail Designs by Chelsea Franklin

If you’re ever looking for a little nail art inspiration, then have we got the book for you. Perhaps book isn’t the right word. More like…bible of awesomeness? Textbook of coolness?

This beautiful tome, called 500 Nail Designs by Chelsea Franklin, founder of, is a collection of 500 nail art designs (just like the cover promises) and every design is photographed in vivid color. Know that this isn’t a how-to book; there are no instructions for any of the designs. Instead, think of it as a reference book, full of beautiful works of art.

The book is divided into six sections: prints and patterns, seasons, work-appropriate designs, holiday, special occasion, and movie & TV. With 500 designs, it’s a sizeable book and would look perfect on any nail lovers book shelf or coffee table. This is a perfect birthday or holiday gift. RRP $24.95.
