An accent nail stands out because it’s the only nail out of a five-nail set that looks different from all the others. Take a peep at our accent nails online, and feel free to apply them on any nail other than the ring finger.
It might sound limiting to have only one nail to work with but take it from Digitz by Design; it’s anything but.

Accent Nails 101
So, what are accent nails at their very basic? We already know they interrupt a staid pattern with something completely different. They might do this with colour, design, or pattern.
However, pulling it off through contrast alone is more complex than you might think. The end product should be different, yet cohesive and harmonize with the other four nails.
Moreover, you can also have two accent nails on the one hand, as long as you’re alternating the fingers. For instance, accentuating the thumb and pinky finger but never the thumb and index finger.
