Nail your mani with this seasons’ hot new trends

Monday, 31 July 2017

From Negative Space to the New French, our favourite picks from the runway offer an abundance of nail art inspiration to get you through this season and the upcoming summer days.

Negative Space

There is something about the abstract space in negative space designs that look supremely chic on tiny canvases.

The New French

This old school nail design staple lends itself to the LBD… never out of style but dares to be bold with an unexpected flair of colour, shape and size.

Modern Romance

The classic allure of lace always adds a dose of drama to any look. Combine it with a nude or even naked nail base and never fear a touch of glitter.

Shade shifter

Unlike an ombre, that is a shift in different shades of the same colour, the gradient shift is a complete shift of one colour to another like red to black. Add a statement nail in a matte finish of your choice and you’ve nailed the trend.

Try any of these looks at a Dream Nails Beauty, Perfect 10 Nail & Body Studio or Placecol Skin Care Clinic near you.
