Are you in a nail rut? Do you find yourself getting the same old mani and pedi at your weekly appointment? If so, snap out if it! Here are 3 nail trends to try to shake things up a bit!
Trend #1 The Reverse French Manicure
The French Manicure is a beautiful, classy way to wear your nails but definitely is long overdue for a makeover! Many nail nuts are taking this traditional mani and pedi one step further. After sitting through your basic manicure, ask your nail tech to apply a matte black base coat. Once it dries, as for your tips to be painted in a way that mimics a French manicure but use a shiny black tone on your tips to jazz up the black base. Your nails will look completely chic yet remain posh and polished and oh-so-appropriate to wear to work or at your special event.
Trend # 2 Polka Dots
They are everywhere! On shirts, sunglasses, coats, dresses, and now even your nails! Make your piggies pretty by opting for a polka dot design on your toes after receiving your standard pedicure, which preps your tootsies for polish. Choose a nude tone to serve as your base. Once it dries completely, create dots in the color of your choice with a small, fine tipped polish brush. Some popular colors to use are butter cream yellow, cobalt blue, soft lilac, and hunter green.
Trend #3 Slanted Tips
Similar to the reverse manicure, this trend starts with the tips of your nails. Paint nails a subtle and soft nude or pink tone. Once they dry, paint a thick slant across your nail tips and angle it downward, horizontally in a bright tone to get attention yet remain classy. Tangerine and metallic gold are two popular tones that are being used to create these sideways designs.
