In recent seasons, over-the-top nail art has been a celebrity staple on the red carpet and L.A. streets alike, so we have to admit we’re readily welcoming the more understated mani trends we’ve seen as of late. Let’s be honest, it’s nearly impossible to recreate some of the wild (and sometimes wacky) nail art that was once in vogue, but these star’s nails are super easy to DIY.

From sheer white to color blocked accent nails, everyone on the A-List is going back to basics when it comes to their manicures, and we’re revealing how you can get the look at home. Pick your favorite celeb mani, below, and tell us which one you’re going to try first in the comments below!

It doesn’t get much simpler than Lauren Conrad’s chic and subdued nail geometric nail art. Simply paint a base coat in a contrasting color of your choice – we love Lauren’s gold polish! – and let dry. Then, tie a string around the tip of each finger and carefully paint two coats of another color. Let dry fully, remove string, and finish with a shiny top coat.

Rachel Zoe isn’t shy about her obsession with the color white, and this updated sheer version of the shade is so cool! Pick a polish with a thicker consistency so you don’t have to paint on too many coats, and rock your most statement-making rings for an ultra-glam effect.

Jessica Alba loves showing off her quirky side, and this funky color-blocked nail polish totally works! As always, Alba infuses her own stylish flare and alternated fingers and toes with the vibrant blue accent for a manicure that’s far from matchy-matchy.

The up-and-coming model certainly knows how to transform herself into an exotic beauty! Kendall’s classic red mani looks anything but ordinary thanks to a simple tribal-inspired temporary tattoo on her middle finger that you can recreate at home using a permanent marker. Paired with electric blue eyeliner and gems, the rising star looks runway ready!

Mindy Kaling’s French manicure looks clean and polished, and is minimal enough that it doesn’t compete with her jewel-toned rings. An easy French mani trick is to let a sheer  base coat dry completely, before placing tape just before the tips to get a seamlessly straight line.
