While you’re busy reviving your winter wardrobe, your nails too need some dressing up. Give a break to those minimalist tips. This time of year calls for salon finish, vibrant hues that’ll up the celebrations.
So get out your nail art kit and get set to create magic with these 6 nail art trends of 2017.
Put your creative skills to the test with this time-taking but gorgeous piece of art. After two generous coats of the delectable Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Matcha Tiramisu, bring out the White Chocolate Ganache and Black Cherry Pie from the same range. Use the thinnest brush for the elaborate stuff and your artwork will be exhibition-ready in no time!
The reverse French manicure is all over the runways and we aren’t complaining. Incorporate two of the boldest colors of the Nykaa palette into the look and you have a winner ON your hands. Contrast the glamorous Nykaa Mirror Chrome Nail Lacquer - Sun-Kissed Gold with the demure Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Sapphire Dreams and gold-plated nails will be done and dusted!
Swear by the hashtag #LessIsMore? Then this is the perfect pick for you! Keep things mutely sexy with two liberal coats of Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Strawberry Shortcake. Dig deep into your nail kitty for a handful of dazzling stick-on nail art stones and you’re sorted for the season. We especially love Nails&More Nla-28 Glitter Set (12Pc). However, don’t go all out with the gems; the correct recipe for killer claws reads two out of five fingernails.
Honestly, purple and its peers hit our beauty kit almost like a hurricane. If you too are a sucker for all things lavender, we might just have some good news for you. Spice up two splendid coats of Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Lavender Gelato with the stunning Nykaa Gold Rush Nail Lacquer - Gold Mine. Butter fingers needn’t worry. Nail art stamps like Colorbar Art Effects Nail Appliques - Double Crossed 006 will make the job a lot easier and the results a lot more consistent. You’re welcome!
Ombre lovers, raise your hands! Probably one of the easiest art designs on the planet, don’t even get us started on how glam the results look, thanks to Nykaa Mirror Chrome Nail Lacquer. Begin with Molten Sterling at the base, move on to Intergalactic Blue, and finish off with Purple Galaxy at the tips. How, you ask? Just go dab-dab-dab with a clean makeup sponge like Panache Cosmetic Sponge!
Give the average, done-to-death French manicure a pop of color. Paint the nail bed a soft pink with the Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel - Pink Malibu and dip the tips in Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Black Sesame Pudding. Too much of the mushy pink happening? Set it off with one sexy, all-black fingernail, accentuated with fake gems from the Nails&More Nla-7 Glitter Nail Art Set (12Pc) set.
