Is it just me or is nail polish and nail art making some sort of resurgence? I feel like everywhere I turn there are crackle polishes, matte colours, press-on patterns or some other new-fangled way to dress up your digits. You can even get polish shades based on the Hunger Games!
Since it has been very grey in Vancouver lately (big surprise there) I am finding myself craving colour. Since it’s not quite shorts and sandals season, I’m opting for some fun nail looks to brighten up my days:
Though I know this spring pastels are back you’ll never catch me in them —painting my nails to look like Easter eggs isn’t really my thing. Right now there are some really fun shades to choose from. Canary from Joe Fresh is a nice yellow if your up for sunny nails, Frutti Petutie (my fave) by Sally Hansen walks the line between vibrant and neon while O.P.I’s Paisley Attention to Me is luring me into tangerine territory.
Skip the process of painting all together with these awesome nail patches. You literally stick them on your nails and file them down (or fold them under) and voila! Your nails are ready (and dry) in a jiffy.
If you have some time to kill and are patient (very patient), the always stylish Keiko Lynn has quite created a cool moon manicure tutorial. I haven’t had time to try it but the results are quite pretty and unexpected.
What nail colours are you sporting this year?
