The nail trend grows stronger and I am loving the nails in the shows so far. We are seeing all sorts of trends from nude’s, white,  neon’s, red’s and all kinds of nail art from glitter ,lace to jewels.

Nude nails are back in a big way.

2) The glitter effect is easy to do at home  apply a clear coat and sprinkle gliiter on the tips. Or alternatively paint the nails a colour and then apply glitter to the whole nail.

3) Adding jewels/stones is a great way to bling up your look. Apply the stones to the nail polish when wet and then add a top coat.

3) Two tone nails. Paint the lighter colour on the nail. Wait till the polish is completely dry then with a make sponge apply a tiny amount of the darker colour and lightly sponge on the tip to the middle. Wait to dry and then apply a top coat.

6) Nail art where one nail is different to the rest. (Seen in London Fashion Week)  Paint the nails and then for the finger you choose to do the nail art wait until completely dry. either use an acrylic striper or a nail art pen to create your design.

8) Neon and bright colour nail polish are going to be big over the next few months. Try the alternative french mani using bright colours. Paint the nail in one coour and then when completely dry either with a free hand or using french tip stickers to create the tip.
