A few seasons ago, every beauty junkie was accenting her ring finger nails with a contrasting color, glitter polish or artsy design of some sort. No matter what the accent, it was guaranteed to be placed on a single nail and always only on that ring finger.

The placement? All up to you. Here, see which 2 designers put their own flare on the trend and shop the nail polishes to try the look at home.
