If there is one thing to mention about beauty in 2012, it’s definitely nail art. I could seriously spend all day just looking at the infinite scroll of Pinterest’s nail tycoons. From seasons to colors, nails have taken all shapes and forms this past year. I am so happy that during this current vampy season two new trends are about to make some serious moves.
Alexa Chung took matte nail laquer to the next level by teaming up with Nails Inc. for the ultimate badass look: leather. Although it might appear to be just an ordinary matte black, she made sure to team up with experts for the realistic appearance of leather. The waiting list is rising as we all anticipate this awesome new nail lacquer to hit the stands!
Since we’re on the dark side of things, I couldn’t help but bring up the other nail trend that can’t leave my mind…Louboutin nails! A sexy approach to the average manicure, this two-toned finish gives an extra something and is easy to do at home!
With Nail Art all the rage this year, it should come of no surprise that The Color Club would design an awesome palette for color changing nail hues. What’s pretty awesome is the color changes in the sun and returns to its original when back indoors. Activated by UV rays, these colors are definitely worth showing off this summer.
Oh Fashion Week how I love thee…especially because of all the upcoming trends on the runway. With nail art as all the fad on 2012, it’s no surprise that Cushie et Ochs’ Fall 2011 makes its unique Caviar Nail appearance now with polish brand Ciate & Sephora releasing the Caviar Mani next month. I’ve never actually tried a 3D nail look but I am all about this one. With black, white, and multi colors as options I can’t help but get excited for the multi (pictured above) for spring and summer.
