Serena Williams might be queen of the tennis court, but she's also a star in another area as well — nail art.

That's right, the tennis pro is a huge fan of (often outrageous) manicures. Williams even partnerned with OPI at one point to create her own polish line.

In case you ever get bored with your go-to manicure color, here's a tip: try something different ... on every nail! Seriously, though, this one must have taken some skill.

In what could quite possibly be one of Williams' most talked-about manicures (someone must be keeping track, we assume) the tennis star tried a different design on every nail, from more animal prints to a lightning bolt to a comic book "POW!" bubble.

In a simpler look, Williams chose a pretty pink polish with subtle nail art here. Bonus points for matching her tennis outfit!

Williams brought the bling to England with this embellished nail look from 2010, which she sported at the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships. And, yes, she won that title.

A winner both on and off the court!
