As I was writing my Fall 2013 Beauty Trends blog I realized that a lot of fun new looks with nails was also big with the changing season so I decided to write a whole separate blog on some of the cool new looks on the horizon.
Hints of Black
I'm really feeling the nail trends on the runways lately. I was on the black nail polish train when black nails became big in 2007-2008 but coincidentally had dyed my hair black around the same time so people used to tell me I looked goth and shortly after I got over the black nail polish trend. Ha! Ha!
I like the new idea of having subtle hints of black on your nails and think the "half moon" nail polish look is really neat. Check out this quick and easy tutorial I found on youtube to give this trend a try at home! DIY Half Moon Nails Tutorial
I think ever since nail stickers became a huge seller on the market and started selling like mad, beauty companies since have been less afraid to try and create even more fun nail products for women to experiment at home. I know for me, I don't like to dish out money on my nails very often because it seems kind of wasteful. I am a creative person at heart and why not do it for myself at home. As time goes on there are more and more options for people to try fun looks like these at home.
Pick up some rhinestones at Walgreens. Pinterest different DIY nail art. Cut some lace and lay it on your wet nail! Have fun with it!
