    NEW YORK (AP) — Move over, studded bracelets and chandelier earrings. Right now, it's all about nails. Rhinestones, 3-D designs, textured topcoats and new offerings from fashion royalty have upped the ante on fingertips, said Kahlana Barfield, beauty director for InStyle magazine.

Nails are an accessory now in the same way as jewelry, but a more affordable one." So what does a decent design in lacquer cost? Barfield says $30 to $35 should do it, depending on the bling. Embellishments, treatments and extensions can up the price to $250 or more.
