Nailing That Nail Art
The word ‘manicure’ has suddenly turned into a mammoth from a sloth in recent years. Nails that were painted with matte colours, blood red or ballet satiny pink were considered elegantly high fashion and voguish. But with the introduction of moss green, tangerine neon and steel grey colours, the nail art fashion rejuvenated with a bang. Originally started for high class society in salons, it was considered as a tedious job to do at home. But lucky for us, nail art has taken a turn for more solemn designs, which can be precisely DIYed at ease even if you are not a nail art genius. Some are listed below:
- Silver Statement
Metallic look nail designs are widely admired by working ladies. It is usually created using the mirror nail polish, all you need is to apply a simple base coat of transparent colour then top it with two coats of reflective silver. It not only adds an extra shine, but also gives a dramatic effect.
- Abstract Patterns
Mathematicians won’t have ever guessed how we women can play with geometry and abstract patterns on our nails. Negative spacing is a cool way to wear big shapes without being too loud. Minimalist nails are going prominent this year around.
- Third Dimensional Bling
With 3D horror flicks gaining popularity, how could 3D embellishments, crystals and stones be left behind? College girls are dashing up their typical manicure with these stardust items.
Holographic polish, patterned French tip, spray on polish, jewel tones, oil spill are some of the latest trends that are taking over the old patterns like flowering, polka dots, matte hues in the nail art industry. One of the most interesting and exciting as well is the lettering nail art. It’s getting the heads turned or should I say dictating everyday look for the ladies this year. With this you can actually say what you mean and there you go your emotions are spilled all over your nails.
