French and solid polish manicures have been around forever. They’re safe; they’re even a bit boring. For the past few seasons, “nail art” has been all the rage, and I’m happy to report that this is a trend which isn’t going away. However, the “anything goes” mentality is passé.

Videos hashtagged #RaiseYourHands are eligible to be featured in sendoff video for American athletes headed to Sochi.
