Our favourite celebrity nail art

Thursday, 15 August 2013

Nail art has never been as popular as in the last year, and we’ve seen everything from cartoons, to food, to geometric patterns and 3D designs. Keeping with the trends, Hollywood celebs haven’t held back when it comes to decorating their nails.

Quirky actress Zooey Deschanel is known for pairing her eccentric outfits with cute nail designs. We love this nautical pattern – not only is it young and fresh but it’s perfect for summer and brightens up her blue dress!

Queen of nail art Katy Perry’s nails are anything but ordinary! From former hubby Russell Brand’s face to 3D pop art symbols, this songstress never fails to amuse us with her nail art choices.

    I hate busy nail art, it generally looks so tacky. Jessica’s is the only one I wouldn’t mind pulling off. Forget complimenting her dress, what about that massive bling!

    I recently saw a post on nail art, the nail was covered in green felt-like nail polish (which made it look like grass) and there were little people figurines on the nail with a tree. I don’t think it is practical for the office but I loved how playful it is. I am happy that nail art has become so popular! Thank you for sharing this awesome article.

    Each to his own, but I prefer how Jessica Biel keeps it classy, but still interesting. The others are a bit much for me.
