You know those moments when a single colour on the nails isn’t just enough to leave you happy? Feels rather meh. Well just like your wardrobe, it’s time to give your digits a makeover with these cool nail trends seen on the catwalks for Spring Summer 2017! There were coloured cuticles, negative spaces and an updated french manicure. Scroll down to see designs for your next trip to the nail salon.
This crafty rendition is unexpected and cool at the same time. It makes its own statement in a subtle way. You can do bright colours or our favourite the shimmering gold or silver. For long lasting effect apply a base coat beforehand. With a small tip brush, dip it in the nail varnish and carefully draw a line at the edges of your nails, near the cuticles. Apply top coat to seal.
A full on colour is pretty but take the extra mile or rather lesser mile by leaving empty spaces. You can do the edgy modern design by swiping an off centred strip of colour for a bold look (see above). Another option would be to add in two or more colours in a geometric design like seen on the NOVIS SS17 runway.
The New French
Step aside old school french tip manicures, the new and improve version has taken our hearts. There’s multi-coloured, thicker lines, and with angles. It’s definitely a fresh take to the white tip french mani popularised in the ’70s. To re-create Rebecca Minkoff’s alternating French tip, simply choose two nail varnish from the same family colour palette – a light and darker shades. Swipe to coats of bold colour as the base and use the light one on your ring finger. Lightly brush a strip of colour on the tip of your nails and let dry. Follow with a second coat and a top coat.
