This fall the must-have celebrity accessory isn’t the latest handbag or designer shoes, but the hottest nail design.
You don’t need to be a celeb or spend a lot of money to be part of the trendsetting crowd.
Nail expert Julie G. shows us how to get the perfect trendy nail.
Pop of Color!
The 3 hottest nail colors for the fall are deep jewel tones and metallics.
Deep Violet, Faux Pas from Illamasqua
Rich Turquoise, Echo from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
Antiqued Metallic Gold, Cruising from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
Magnetic nail polish uses metallic particles to create a 3D design on your nails while staying smooth to the touch. It’s really fun and easy – all you do is apply one coat of the polish to your nail and let it dry. Then apply one more coat and hold the cap over the nail.
The cap has a magnet on the top of it, so as you hold it over the nail, the iron powder in the nail polish is gravitating toward the magnet which is creating a really cool design. You only need to hold it here for about 15 seconds for the design to appear.
Half Moon Manicure:
The “Half Moon” Manicure is a really chic and really easy to do at home. All you need is two of your favorite colors. Here we have a white nail polish from MAC, and a grey/taupe color from Jesses Girl called Stiletto.
The Leopard print nail is really fun and easy to do especially if you don’t have the steadiest hands. The first step is to coat your nails with a solid color. Do a base coat with “All Things Girly” and “Fashion Friday”.
Once you’ve given them a chance to dry for a few seconds, take a black nail polish using a script brush and create “C” or “bracket” shapes surrounding each of the dots. You can also add random black dots in empty spaces. Wait about 15-20 minutes before you apply a top coat so the design lasts for a lot longer.
