Happy New Year! Everyone’s working on their resolutions — working out harder, eating healthier, and keeping up with this year’s fashion trends. You’re probably doing the same thing, right? But don’t forget your digits. This is a great time to amp up your nail game. Get inspired by these 2018 nail trends:
Accent it with Black
The great thing about the accent nail trend is that you don’t need to have a design for each of your fingers. You could simply compliment a couple of your nails with black accents if you don’t want them on all your digits. You could go with a gold or silver basecoat for high-glam or pretty colors like coral pink or yellows for a girly effect. If you’re into neutrals, consider a neutral or a nude color to make your black accents pop, but in a subtler and subdued way.
Glitter those Tips
Yes, French tips are so ‘90s, but you could do a French tip with glitter to bring this nail trend to this decade. An ideal way to incorporate glittered tips is over dark basecoats, suggests Marilyn Monroe Spas and other nail artists. Apply the glitter polish ala-French style on half of a nail, diagonally, or sideways. For a fun night out, or if you simply love standout nails, go with a brown or grey nude or pink with rhinestones and glitters on top.
While silver and gold metallics are great and all, this year, it’s all about going out of your metallic comfort zone and incorporating green, blue, and pink metallic on your digits. Better yet, use ultra violet, which is 2018’s Pantone color of the year. Metallics give out that super fun vibe and look great on many skin tones. Try it all over the nail, ala-French style, or in different colors for each nail.
