Nail Polish Trends for the Winter-Spring Transitional Season
No outfit is complete without the perfect paint job… on your nails. Fashion touches every aspect of our lives theses days, so it’s essential that your nail polish is on-trend. While our Scottsdale “winter” bounces between actual cold and cloudy days to warm sit-outside-on-the-lawn-and-enjoy-a-spring-training-game kind of weather, it’s important that your nail polish can work for any season! Make an appointment at Gainey Nails and Spa at the SHOPS Gainey Village to up your mani game.
Gold, silver, bronze… no we’re not talking Winter Olympics, we’re talking metallic shades that are hot for manis and pedis.
Chrome and Mirrors
Along with metallics, sleek, shiny chrome polish and edgy mirrored looks in vampy shades of black and deep gray are popular for 2018 too. For an ever-changing look, try a shape-shifting chrome that shows different in the light.
Half and Half, Diagonal and Window-Pane… Oh My!
Consider a diagonal swatch of color, leaving the other side of the nail a glossy nude, or painting each side of the nail a different color for a mermaid effect. Window-pane patterns are hot, too.
Turn a classic manicure upside down with half-moons at the nail bed, with or without traditional French tips.
Shimmer Finish and Accents
Instead of jumping all in to these trends, consider just adding accents, such as a classic French manicure with chrome or shimmery tips, or just one accent nail (such as the index finger verses the ring finger from a few years back).
The Marbled Effect
Think swirly Easter eggs… with an edge.
Feeling really fashion-forward? Mix a few of these trends, then leave the remainder of your nails in a nude or neutral shade with a few coordinating accents.
Even if you rock a simple, classic red or nearly nude, a mani-pedi is the perfect way to pamper yourself and ensure you look polished from head to toe!
