Instead of sporting one solid color, now we're seeing multiple colors on each nail or hand. The first image is also an example of a French Twist (look below). This trend leads to a large array of creative ideas that you can't go wrong with.
We're not just changing up the color, why not go bold and add texture and material? The leather look is superb as well as the fishnet tips in picture two.
If you're feeling for a more classic preppy look, try the creamy sugary nudes out today! Add a little
sparkle or keep it clean and simple. This is a great alternative to the popular dark vamp look.
Polka dots are also a trend in clothing. The icon white on black or white on navy are classics that will rightfully never go away. If you're tired of seeing white dots, try a white background and colorful dots.
Little Extra Something!
Whether you do your nails at home or get them done professionally, eventually the polish will chip or smear. Unfortunately, it tends to happen a lot sooner than we like. I have the latest expert advice on how to make your polish last AND list of manicure destroyers.
Make Polish Last
Extra layers - About 4 hours after getting a manicure or doing your nails, apply an extra top layer. Repeat at least twice a week to keep your nails looking fresh. Remember that with each new layer, patience!
Patience - You really do need 25 minutes for polish to set and fully dry. Those quick dry top coats are no good because only the top layer will dry first which means nails can still get smear.
Hand Lotion - Lotions high in alcohol (pretty much all of them) damage nails because it makes the color dull while slowly stripping off the top coat.
Heat - No folding warm laundry or cooking on a hot oven for you! Poor ;) Like alcohol, heat from laundry and stove softens the polish and dulls color.
Scrubs - Exfoliaters remove dead skill cells and can also weaken or remove polish. If you must use an exfoliater, try sporting gloves for the application.
Stickers - Removing anything sticky like stickers, price tags, tape, etc. can do a number on your manicure. You can have chips and polish removal while trying to scratch off an annoying piece of tape.
