Shattered Glass Nails

If punk rocker chic is your aesthetic, shattered glass nails is the trend made with you in mind. I love the futuristic and edgy feel it gives, and it will truly take your LBD to new heights, especially when paired with chrome rings and/or bangles or cuffs.

Metallic Half-Moon

Forget French tip, when you rock the metallic half-moon nail trend on your digits, you’re earn second looks for sure. Metallic colors are a guaranteed hit for party ready holiday beauty, since the sheen already puts you in the festive mood. Taking your metallic colors into a half-moon design adds to the fashion forward feel of your look.

Get The Blues

Now, reds and pinks might be your safe and easy bet, but you should consider bright and vibrant metallic or frosted blue hues to accentuate your holiday looks with. Just don’t pair it with a matching blue eyeshadow to avoid looking too 80s or over-the-top.

Goldfinger

Deck your digits out in the gilded brilliance of gold glitter and metallics. There’s nothing like gold nails to spell instant glam for your look. If you’re decking your digits in gold, avoid wearing bold accessories in your hands and arms and instead opt for thin and delicate pieces.

Glittering Nail Beds

This season, your cuticles are getting more attention as far as nail trends go. Too much glitter can read juvenile so a little sprinkling of glitter on your nail beds is a great way to add some sparkle to your mani, while maintaining a sophisticated aura.

Modern Lines

For a mani that stands out and truly goes the distance, get geometric with it. Modern lines and abstract art-inspired tips really hint at your inner fashion renegade. What’s great with this trend is you can choose more muted colors if you’re more conservative, and bolder colors if you fancy yourself a beauty risk taker.
