When it comes to nail art, we keep thinking we’ve seen it all. But fortunately, those in the industry keep innovating and coming out with rad new formulas, products and kits that make getting creative easier than ever.

The New Black has made their M.O. just that, first becoming known for their ingenious 5-piece ombré sets in gradually intensifying pastel to glittery to punchy shades of purple, pink, blue, gray—you name it. The FOAM-iest iteration, which we’re naturally obsessed with, is the Waves set, which captures the teal tint of our favorite oceans from pale to deep turquoise, interspersed with some sparkle. And best of all, the formulas are all paraben-free, sulfate-free and formaldehyde-free.

But they haven’t stopped with ombré. The New Black has taken on nail art with a distinctly editorial vibe by coming out with a kit that allows the user to transfer bits of newspaper-style typeography to their nails, resulting in a cool, inky mani perfect for any wordsmith fashionista. Pick a basecoat shade: Daily News (ivory), Times Late Edition (pale gray) and Weekly Journal (nude), watch the tutorial video at and get newsy!
