There has never been a more exciting time for nail design, with so many colourful and stylish ideas at the forefront of fashion at the moment. Designs have never been so vibrant with tons of celebrities taking risks with edgy shapes and daring nail art. You can put your own stamp and personality into your nails, coordinating them with your outfits for either bang on-trend contrasting or classic and feminine complementary looks.
Here are a few of summer’s key looks you won’t want to miss out on:
Adventurous nails with intricate designs are having a huge fashion moment. Nail art fans can be found tweeting pictures of their creations as well as sharing them on blogs and other social networking profiles. Now you can get creative and proudly show off your fun ideas with bright nail varnishes and nail art pens. Models Own do a great range of rainbow colours from pastels to brights and their pens are hugely popular with all the nail artists out there.
Glamorous metallic can really set off an outfit and make a statement. If you want your look to have the ‘wow’ factor then metallics, or even magnetics are perfect for you. This look suits the fashion forward who want their nails to reflect their glossy look and eye for detail. If you like to stand out from the crowd and have luxurious taste then stock up on these rich shades – Orly have a particularly good range – and bring out your inner Goddess!
Special effects nails are big at the moment and Toma Krackle effects offer a quick transformation to spice up your look instantly. Just a coat of any colour crackle nail polish over another will create a magical two tone design that takes just seconds to appear. It’s a fast fashion fix that updates your look when you want to try a more edgy style but don’t have much time.
Chic, short and square nails in delicate pinks have made a huge comeback as everyone tries to find their inner princess lately. It’s no surprise that this trend has come about after a certain Royal wedding and the immaculate, ladylike appearance of perfectly groomed nails have been seen everywhere since. CND and Essie have some very pretty pinks fit for a princess!
