We don’t mean that you should use your white out correction fluid like you did in middle school, this season all the cosmetics brands are coming out with their own stark white nail polish concoction. All white nails have been all over the runways during the Spring/Summer 2014 shows, and are now being sported by the stylish set like Olivia Wilde and Kim Kardashian. Opt for a shiny topcoat on your all white mani to keep it looking glossy, or you can be more daring and experiment with a matte topcoat.
Metallic nails are making a huge comeback this season. From shimmering nudes, deep pewter, bright and sparkly gold, metallic nails are all the rage. There isn’t one particular metallic that’s in the spotlight, so have fun by trying out a whole range of metallic polishes. You can even mix it up by wearing two metallic shades in one mani.
Earn Your Stripes
Whether it’s a single graphic stripe or a windowpane grid pattern, or even chunky stripes across the nail, stripes are one of the major trends to try this season. It’s not super complicated to recreate stripes at home, so this is a quick and easy way to up your nail game. Choose a contrasting color for your stripe, or go monochromatic by choosing a darker or lighter hue for your design, i.e. navy blue nail with a powder blue stripe.
It’s not only pastel clothes that are making the fashion headlines, these soft and delicate colors are making their way to beauty and cosmetics trends as well. Pastel is the ultimate color scheme of the season, so get on it and get these delectable hues onto your digits.
Break tradition for a little bit, and try out the new and update French manicure. Instead of the usual pale pink and white, different colors are being used for the modern version of this manicure classic. Spotted on the Holmes & Yang runway was a French manicure using nude polish for the base and black nail polish for the tips of the fingers.
Get an Accent
Use more colors in a single manicure, and add more pizzazz and flash to your nail look by embracing the accent nail trend. An accent nail is basically the nail, or nails, that you do in a different color from the rest of your mani. You can even be more daring by putting some nail art on your accent nail. This is a great way to show more personality in your mani. Celebs like Anne Hathaway, Vanessa Hudgens, and Beyonce have been photographed flaunting this trend.
