It’s no secret that we *love* color here at Brit + Co. Whether it’s on our walls, on our desktop or on our sneakers, we’re no stranger to bright hues. But sometimes we want something a little bit different. So this time, we’re ditching our favorite colors and opting for something a little more monochromatic. Check out these 11 black and white nail designs that we’re swooning over.


1. Geometric: It’s okay to go a bit wild with your nails. Try out this epic geometric design for your next mani. (via Cuded)


2. Inkblot: Umm, okay. These are some of the coolest nails we’ve seen in a long time. Inkblot? Oh, we’re so trying this. (via Love Maegan)


3. Feathers: Add a boho touch to your look with solid white nails and a feather that extends onto three nails. Achieve this style using a thin nail art brush and a dab of black polish. (via Hairstyle FS)


4. Wink Wink Nails: Say hello to the cutest nails EVER. We’re totally wearing this flirty design on our next date night. (via Band of Outsiders)
