A few seasons ago, the biggest dilemma we had with nail polish was whether to pick the dark pink or the barely there pink. Then the term ‘nail art’ exploded, we found ourselves saying goodbye to ‘it’ colours and here we are, with a basic rule of ‘anything goes’.
London Fashion Week 2012 showed us that nails are making their mark on the fashion scene. It’s like their clothes are wearable art, but this, this is nail-art – and it’s fabulous!
You can play around with nail varnish; from a different colour on each nail, a sheet of separate glitter and even the new magnetic effect.
Your nails are your accessory when you can’t find that perfect ring, they beautify your hands when that bracelet just doesn’t quite go and they add something extra to your natural outfit with minimum effort.
Statement nails were a BIG summer hit and thanks to the thousands of different colours, styles and effects, the only difficult bit is choosing your look. Now it’s just getting bigger and better!
Clash them, match them, alternate them; they are your personality. Whether you want a quick fix of the cheap stuff or you want to dab your finger in the more expensive liquid, your nails can be the cherry on the cake if you choose well.
Designers such as Victoria Beckham, Donna Karen and Alexander McQueen embrace such designs to enhance their beautiful creations.
Forget about the bag, shoes and lip gloss – your nails are the most fashion-forward thing to concentrate on.
The action going on inside Somerset House during London Fashion Week 2012 proved that nail polish is making its mark on the fashion scene. It’s like their clothes are wearable art, but this, this is nail-art – and it’s fabulous!
Last week we saw London bring the biggest and the best to the world of fashion! Themes of ‘an irreverent English country garden’, energetic print, geek-chic and numerical themes blasted through the catwalk and everybody took immediate note.
I’m not saying you should put such extravagant pieces of elegance on your little old nails, nor pull out those rhinestones on your Topshop ring to superglue them onto your pinkies, nothing of the sort – but next time you’re browsing the nail varnish on your next makeup shop, go a bit crazy and think outside the box. Veer away from your usual monotone bus-red. Because next year, regardless of the rubbish British weather reports, it’s going to get even hotter.
You will get that feeling of achievement when you look down to your pretty polished pinkies, smile and think to yourself: nailed it.
It’s quick fashion at your finger tips. Literally.
