A new year is the perfect time for a brand new look, and your nails are the perfect place to start! You don’t have to rush out to your local nail bar either — save the pennies and get creative instead. Here are five of the season’s top nail art trends.
This winter, nail fashion has been all about bright colors, which are perfect for making those cold dark days feel much more cheery. Go for bold pinks and reds and fluorescent citruses and use more than one color on each nail in asymmetric patterns. Don’t worry if the nail varnish colors clash, it’s all part of the look.
Vampy nails never go out of fashion, but this year it’s time to swap your trusty black, nail standby varnish for a deep dark blue. This shade will go really well with lace, another of the season’s top style trends. A dark shade on your nails is also very forgiving of any imperfections!
Mind the gap
One of the most interesting looks of the Spring 2015 catwalks, this nail art is easy to do and looks terrific. Paint from the top of your nail to halfway down, then leave a small gap and finish your nail down to the cuticle using a different color. Use neutral tones for a subtle look or be bold and use bright colors for eye-catching stripes.
A glamorous twist on the classic French manicure, instead of using white at the tips of your nails use silver glitter varnish instead. You don’t have to be too neat either. In fact, the messier the better, as small trickles will give your nails a great frosty, icy effect.
And lastly, don’t forget you can accessorize with body jewelry. A gorgeous hand chain looks great paired with freshly manicured nails and will add a touch of elegance and eastern glamour. If you haven’t worn one before, keep it simple at first, but if you’re feeling adventurous pair a hand chain up with more bracelets and rings for a really cool look.
There you have it. Five looks for fashionable hands in 2015. So grab ten minutes to yourself, have plenty nail varnish remover and cotton wool at the ready, and enjoy giving your hands a bit of TLC.
