The standard French manicure
is practically a beauty faux pas at this point, but Kaley Cuoco showed us how to take a modern spin that's fresh and unexpected. She went for a bare nail that was accented with a chromatic gold tip. To re-create her look, the key is to start off with a flattering base coat, such as Butter London's Nail Foundation
 ($19). This subtly tinted polish will hide any imperfections in the nail but still allow your natural nail to show through. Once you apply your base coat, use a metallic gold polish, like Ciaté Sand Dune
 ($15), to polish the tip. Finish the look with a glossy top coat for a "polished" look.
