I’m not sure if it’s me, but I’m noticing that nail art is bigger this year than ever before.
From wraps, to marble arts and multi hued effects there seems to be no stopping us from adding colour and vibrance to the tips of our fingers of late.
I myself have been experimenting with my own tallons of late to try and come up with some interesting and exciting looks for this season and I think I’m starting to understand the appeal now more than ever.
For many years, ladies have been painting their nails for the style and glamour (the orginal and classic red more than any other colour), but now there is something liberating about being able to express yourself and your fashion with the use of a couple of pots of colour and your nails.
I’ve recently written how to do features for www.femalefirst.co.uk on everything from newspaper print nails, striped, crackle manicures and even dip dye nails, not just to express some style but because it’s enjoyable.
With the news of Chanel’s S/S 2012 nail colour collection being named after the spring months something tells me that our love affair with our nails will only get stronger, with more and more ladies being creative and individual with the artistic flair.
The popular US TV show Gossip Girl has even launched their character inspired nail varnish range with a metallic base colour and funky top coat to achieve the style and elegance of everyone’s favourite fashionistas.
So next time, you’re looking for something to do why not crack open the nail laquers or wrap sheests, have a think about your favourite colours and have a go at create a signature look of your own.
