Ombré, precise nail art, and crackle polish all in a day's work with 10th Story Nails. Impressive.
Quite possibly the most impressive—and artful—Shark Week manicure.
Leave it to Bergdorfs' social media savvy team to find a fashion-inspired shark mani. Givenchy print nails on @AmongstBrogues.
China Glaze Instagram
ChinaGlaze tweeted this manicure that's more cute than blood-curdling. We like it. (PS — the polish is Splish Splash)
We love KattClaws' animated manicure — and her great color scheme.
Spotted on Pinterest, these nails were... interesting.
The Daily Nail
The Daily Nail is constantly imagining bright, fun, and inspired manicures. This one is a panoramic view of a flying shark. We're loving the glitter accents on the ocean!
Spotted on Toxel, this nail art appliqué design was fairly simple and creative.
Valley NYC's nail art on Hannah Bronfman had quite the bite. We like.
Daniel Vosovic Instagram
Daniel Vosovic tweeted the nail art of Lucky Mag's Ray Siegel, who took a decidedly morbid approach to the Shark Week festivities. Bloody nail, anyone?

It's an inventive way to celebrate this week of proud American programming, so we picked our ten favorites—from the talent at Valley NYC down to a Givenchy-inspired look snapped by Bergdorfs. Click through the slideshow and let us know which one's your favorite in the comments. —Phillip Picardi (@pfpicardi) and Molly Carroll
