The pale-pink polish nicely balances the glitzy embellishments, which give a nod to the hotel’s art-deco ambiance. Plus, that mini flamingo is freakin’ adorable.

This mani would look on point clutching one of the hotel’s frozen vodka lemonades, especially considering the ivory polish is a perfect match for the oversize planters surrounding this garden-themed pool.

Considering all the designer shades and blinged-out headphones spotted at the World Series of Poker tournament every year, accessorizing is clearly part of the game. Just be sure to customize this manicure with your own lucky cards.

The gold bead topping this pyramid reminds us of the beam of light that shines from the Luxor’s apex, and that eye looks like it was lifted from the replica Sphinx guarding the hotel’s entrance.
