It is often suggested that an individual’s wardrobe says a lot about their personality. Those that choose lycra over long dresses are often seen as active and always on the go, while those that pick out florals, lace, or pastel numbers are more often than not known to hopeless romantics. But it is only clothes that we use to express our character? Or do we try to make our personalities shine in other ways, too?
What you choose to wear each day isn’t necessarily arbitrary, and that also includes what art you decide to show off on your nails. If you would like to express your style through your fingertips, here are some of the latest nail trends you can ask your favourite technician for next time you head to the salon.
Let’s face it, the lockdown has been hard. And what better way to cheer yourself up than by asking for a different colour on every nail? Whether you go super bright and bold, or subtle with pastel hues, they’ll be sure to put a smile on your face.
Brighten any outfit you wear by opting for some neon nails. From funky oranges and hot pinks to stand-out greens and bright yellows, get experimental and ask for the whole nail to be coated, or select different shades and show it off through nail art.
Is there anything classier than a natural nude hue? They’re always in fashion, always appropriate, and always make your fingers look longer than they are! It’s a surprisingly easy trend that we can all get on board with.
Set to be one of autumn’s coolest nail trends, tortoiseshell nails are popping up everywhere. After individuals have been stuck indoors for many months, they are allowing their nail technicians a lot more freedom – and this is one of the trendy creations that beauticians can’t wait to get stuck into!
Are you looking for something a little more delicate? If so, floral nails will be the perfect choice for you. Ask for dainty petals in soft colours for the ultimate feminine look.
If you fancy getting crafty on your own nails, don’t forget to pick up some essentials first. Depending on what design you’ll be creating, you might need to invest in a good acrylic nail kit, a base coat, some funky nail polish, a dotting tool, fine paint brushes, tape and a topcoat.
Enjoy your pampering session!
