This Season's : Nail Trends

As Spring surrounds us and Summer's touch is close by, we bask in the beauty of neons, florals and pastels. The trends don't stop there though! We have gorgeous trends for pretty little hands and feet as well. Below I've listed the top 4 and I personally believe each one is a must-try because they could not be more fun and fabulous!

1. Ombre Nails: It's like the hair trend, but for your nails! You can achieve this look by painting each of your five nails a different shade of one color. Meaning if you picked blue, you would go from light to dark blue as you paint your nails. We saw the ombre look all over the runways this season and I think it's a fun, new look to try out especially with pastel and neon polish!

2.  Reverse French Manicure: I absolutely love this look! It is so fun and fierce. You start by picking any two colors you would like, one for the main part and one for the peek-a-boo reverse french. You begin by painting your nail the color you would like for the french part. Let it dry completely! Then you can make the french part two shapes, a half moon or a triangle like the picture. For the half moon, place the nail stickers close to the bed of your cuticles covering what you want to show, then paint the rest of your nails the other color, top coat it and there ya have it! For the triangle, you paint the rest of your nail diagonally to the right, then to the left leaving the bottom on your nail showing with the previous color.

3. Glitter Nails: Now this trend I LOVE! I'm convinced glitter runs through my veins. Add some glitter to your mani & it's an instant party! You can paint your nails entirely with glitter or use it as a top coat. Start with your favorite polish and add this on top for a pop of sass. You can also use the glitter to do a french mani. There's so many ways to wear it, how can one choose?!

4. Neon Polish: This is so perfect for summer. From bright oranges to shocking pinks, this trend is a must try for everyone. Keep it simple though, no crazy two toned manis. you can add a top coat of glitter is you like, but keep it subtle. Now all neon colors are a bit translucent, so make sure to paint your nails a light white first and then apply the neon color so it pops!

So my lovelies, what do you think of this season's nail trends? Will you try any out or play it safe with your usual color?
