With so many interesting beauty trends this Fall, one really stands out – nail art! Whether pressed or painted, nails are really having their day.
Perhaps Katy Perry was one of the pioneers, she told a crowd at the Hammer Museum Annual Gala on Saturday about her obsession with the art form: “I am kind of an art aficionado but I am more of a nail-art aficionado, so I hope you will adopt me into your ways. Nail art is very popular in our group — the tweens. And the girls who think they are still tweens.”
If you want something a bit sparkly for Christmas or New Year’s Eve, Essie has a collection of Luxe Effects that will have your nails shimmering like the Times Square Ball at midnight. Layer it one mono-chromatically like the Fab Fatale blog does, or paint the effect over your favorite shade of blue like Eliza Naomi did below.
You can get a kit from Sephora and create this interesting tribal nail art.
If you really want to put on the dog, try these micro beads like the Manicurator did:
OK, so if you don’t have tons of time or patience, try a Gradient Manicure like the Scarlet Cow, by painting each nail a different color. This one’s our fav!
