Beauty Bag: Nail Art!

October 10, 2012

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.”

We love it too – from the Minx Holiday Collection (Katy Perry’s current fav), to the Candy Corn and Spider Web nails from Marie Claire, there’s plenty of ways to dress up nails for the holidays.

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!
