What girl doesn’t look forward to the fun nail colors of summer? This season has an array of trends to choose from! Everything from nudes to neons is IN this summer. There is definitely a color to suit any mood that you happen to be in.
Neutrals: one of the newer trends that hit fashion this spring is neutral nails. These simple and sophisticated tones are appropriate for any occasion. Is there anything that nude doesn’t match?! CHANEL has taken this trend to the next level, adding some sparkle to their summer neutrals. Check out CHANEL Le Vernis in ‘Island’ or ‘Delight’ for great nudes with shimmer.
Neons and Brights: if you thought this trend would be disappearing, think again. Neons have transformed from being popular among six-year-old girls, to becoming a hit on the highest fashion runways. If there ever was a perfect time for neon nails it’s summer time! Have fun mixing and matching your colors, sport bright orange on your toes and pink on your nails for a fun look. Essie has some fabulous bold colors in their Summer 2012 collection.
Metallics: this trend is the perfect way to add some glitz and glam to your everyday life! These colors even have the ability to last longer, in addition to matching any outfit. You have the choice to go simple with silver or gold (which we are especially loving for summers in the sand), or get creative with a pastel or bright metallic. Check out Essie’s ‘bikini so teeny’ for a soft blue metallic!
Mix and Match: while our grandmothers might disagree, mixing and matching your toe and hand colors is completely acceptable! Experiment this summer and get creative: metallic on your hands, neon on your toes or simply choose different hues.
It’s clear that there is not just one nail trend this summer, but several. So have fun, experiment, and get creative. Nothing is off the table this season!
