DIY Nail Ideas From Cirque Du Soleil And More Of Our Manicures From This Weekend (PHOTOS)

When I asked editors here at The Huffington Post, as well as some of my favorite DIY nail art bloggers for a show of hands (get it?), I was surprised to see how many girls had taken risks this weekend with their manicures. From fashion assistant Michelle Persad's deep purple nail color to Sarah of Chalkboard Nails' complex gradient design inspired by Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away, I'm certainly motivated to go bold with the unexpected (hence, my nude nails).

Click through these manicures in the slideshow below, then share your own.
