Long gone are the days of plain, block coloured nails. With the arrival of nail wraps, crackle polishes and nail pens, there’s never been a better time to get creative with your nails!
I’ve always loved experimenting with my nails. From painting each one a different colour to glueing on ridiculous nail extensions that ping off within hours, horrifically damaging the nail bed underneath. I’m always eager to try out new nail trends, and I’ve even managed to master painting my writing hand - an achievement for any girl I’m sure!
Here lie my current favourite nail trends I’ve been spying over the blogosphere recently:
I first saw this design over on Lily
’s blog. My favourite thing about this design is that any colours can be used and so many creations can be made.
This is a lot easier to do recreate than you think. Simply build up the colour then finish off with glitter to make it look like a starry night sky. You can find lots of inspiration for your nebula nails here
I do warn you though, it’s near on impossible to remove glitter polish.. approach with risk!
This trend sparked from the cute Topshop makeup range
. All you need is a white polish and black nibbed nail pen to create a whole range of looks.
They’re this season’s crackle polish. This design is the newest craze in the nail world, with 17, Nails INC and The Saturdays bringing out their own collections.
The science behind it baffles me, but you simply paint the nail then hover the magnet over the wet polish, creating an almost holographic design.
Do you like to experiment and get creative with your nails?
