Another September, another slew of hot beauty trends. No other beauty trend is as fun and playful as nail trends. Nail trends and nail art have been getting a lot of attention as of late, and that comes as no surprise since the past few years have seen a rise in nail salons, nail polish brands, and fascination and demand for anything and everything that relates to nail care, maintenance, and fashion. After all, you can never be fully dressed and in style if your digits are out of date.
Keep your tips n’ toes at the top of their game with the modern nail trends that have cropping up in the runways. Get inspired by them and do your own take (DIY, here we come!), or simply imitate these hot nail trends from designer runways and bring them to reality. These nail trends are also great ways to increase the trendiness of your office ensembles, or even make your everyday denim uniform look more fashion forward. Nothing dresses up an outfit quite like well manicured fingers with some truly chic nail colour. Here’s our rundown of Fall 2014’s top nail trends:
The renaissance of 90s fashion has naturally extended into the beauty industry. One of the hottest hues this season is vampy red. The iconic Chanel Vamp is a modern classic, made popular by Uma Thurman in the movie Pulp Fiction. Bottles of this deep red polish were sold out within seconds during the 90s, and now this hue is back, and it’s a stronger trend than ever. Do yourself a favor, and grab yourself a bottle of this color. Although it’s one of the hottest this season, it’ll last you way beyond that.
In the Nude
Pale pink, flesh-colored, nude nails ruled the runways this season. This understated and versatile trend is elegant and polished (pun intended) enough for any type of occasion or event, and is sure to lend your overall look some class and sophistication. Whether your nude tips are done in sheer or opaque, you simply can’t go wrong with this feminine yet ultra chic nail trend.
Gunmetal Gray is a hue that deserves a category all its own given how prevalent and well-received it was on a lot of designer runways. Metallics are always a good option when it comes to nail colour and nail art, but gunmetal adds a bit of edge and upscale glamorous rock n’ roll to your fingertips.
Nail art remains strong for this coming season. Whether you love to deck out your digits with stick-on prints or designs, jewels and studs, or colour splashes and unique golden patterns, you can be assured that creative and even over-the-top nail art is here to stay. Flex your artistic minds and muscles, ladies. Tis’ the season for wearable art right at your fingertips.
Golden, bronze, or platinum silver; whatever metallic hue you choose you’ll be at the top of your nail game. Metallics just give an outfit that extra pop, fizz, and sparkle that it needs. A great DIY idea would be to layer all these metallics together or even use different metallics to give your nails a super trendy ombre effect.
Do the math and learn your angles, it’s time to apply some line and geometric patterns to your nails. This minimalist yet very graphic nail trend is the one to watch. Get on this trend, and you’ll be one of the first–and the chicest too. Use bright colours to contrast with the negative space, it will really make your cutting edge avant garde mani stand out even more.
