Ashley Benson usually sticks to feminine, trendy fashion as Hanna on Pretty Little Liars, but in real life, she tends to add a little edge to her style. Her latest look? A spiked manicure. What do you think is the edgy nail art hot or not?

“#spiked,” Ash captioned the Instagram snapshot she shared of a recent manicure: a black base polish covered in glitter, with gold mini-spikes on one lucky fingernail. Bold look, Ash! Remind us never to get in a fist fight with this particular Pretty Little Liar. (Come to think of it, maybe all of the Liars should take this defensive measure against “A.” You never know when you’re going to need an edge in hand-to-hand combat on that show.)

This isn’t the first time Ashley has gone slightly grunge. The actress has been dabbling with the punk look more and more lately. Last September, she posted an Instagram of herself rocking black lipstick, smoky eye makeup, and a short edgy hairdo. She captioned the pic, “Black.” We have to admit: we’re kind of digging the darker side of Ashley. Maybe Hanna should integrate some punk into her polka dotted ensembles, too? This could be a good way to work through her feels surrounding the Haleb breakup. Spencer may play strip trivia to get through tough times, but we could totally see Hanna wearing spiked nails as an expression of her inner turmoil.
