The 80’s was all about bold colours and glitter! So if you too are a glitter enthusiast like us you’re going to love this trend. The 80’s retro vibes are back in full swing with glitter manicures and bold ombré nails ruling.
Love some nail art but are hesitant to go all out? This trend is made for you. Add some cheeky and minimalist accents of colour and stones to your otherwise blah nail polish.
It you are a pro-stalker on Instagram and follow a bazillion nail art accounts, you’re sure to have seen this trend crop up. A twist to the classic French manicure. These half-moon designs have been making the rounds and are sure to stay in 2019 too!
Monochrome nail art
Be it the fashion or makeup space, monochrome seems to be that trend which has been there done that! But stress not monochrome babies, this trend is slowly moving into the nail scene too and the best part is that all you need is one nail paint!
Plaid, floral and animal prints are just a few patterns that you can rock even on your nails. They might seem difficult to achieve but, we have a hack! Use glue on stickers and you’re sorted! If you’re not the DIY type, go to your nearest nail spa and treat yourself to some pattern nail art.
Yellows and Greens
Spring is still a few months away, but everyone already seems to be embracing the season. You too can start your prep by getting some sunshine yellow or slime green nails. Choose to go the pastel or bold route, just make sure you apply at least two coats so that you don’t end up with patchy nail paint.
Make your nails look like a piece of art! You ask how? Try some stone and Swarovski decal nail art. However difficult they might be to maintain we can’t help but ogle at these drool worthy designs.
