When it comes to nail art, there are a lot of trends going around at the moment, from nude nails to platinum streaks, there’s a lot of colors and styles you can experiment with.
This season we have seen contrasting nail styles on the catwalk. There have been delicate designs like swan white polishes, nude nails and shiny nails which have all been put against dark outfits.
One nail art design which is probably the most striking and breathtaking of all is the “dripping blood” effect by Nepalese American fashion designer, Prabal Gurung. Flaunting fabulous nails is also a great way to show off your 77 Diamonds rings, a new bracelet or your wonderfully soft hands after a manicure. So if you’re looking for some nail art inspiration, below are just a few ideas for you to experiment with.
Neutral or cream colored nails are really popular this Spring. When topped with a clear polish and buffed nicely they’ll shine beautifully, giving an almost ‘wet look’ to your nails. It is a a minimalist trend which has become increasingly popular over the past year, so much so that it has been seen as the demure look at prestigious fashion shows.We saw Marc Jacobs models flaunt pure white nails at Rag & Bone, while Chanel sported simple French manicures. It seems that toning down your nails is the new trend with these designers.
If nude nails aren’t your style then you’ll be pleased to hear that some designers have taken to a more dark and romantic style of nail art. Jason Wu featured navy and grey shades of nails, while dark purple was used by Marchesa to give a ‘dark angel’ look.
Luxury metallic nails
Gold, silver and copper nails are glam and glitzy and give an almost galactic look. We’ve seen sleek platinum racing streak designs from Monika Chiang which we love.
