Nail art has not only become the latest pop phenomenon, but has always been part of every woman’s beauty must have. Whether it is going to the salon or making use of your DIY-at home nail kit, all of us would like to keep up with the latest nail trends. Everyone is wondering where is nail art heading this year. Dream Nails Beauty would like to take you on this journey of what was and what is to come.
In the past we have seen a lot of long acrylic nails which were as trendy as perms and bold eyeshadows. Nail art has come as far as the 90’s, where celebrities and models on the runway brought humour to fashion shows with edgy nail art.
Nails transformed from a flat canvas to more edgy 2D and 3D looks. Who could forget Lady Gaga with “pokerface”? She sure started with the incredible long nail shapes such as Stiletto. A decade ago nail art transformed into a new phenomenon when women started using nail stickers. This was as easy as one-two- three and you had the best looking nails. Anyone who didn’t have the patience to draw on all those crazy designs rejoiced in the fact that they could have a work of art on their nails in less than two minutes.
We are now looking at the nail trends which are still applicable in today’s era. Clean linear shapes, baby pink coats with silver outlines made their way onto the “mani cam” as E! news would like to call it. But more and more woman started asking for more natural, negative spacing designs to show off their own natural nails. Nail art became a lot more subtle, but still risky and elegant in your own way.
The prediction for nail art is definitely moving towards a more elegant and modern look, using beautiful nail colours or simple nail art. Natural might just be the new “fake”. Every woman can be empowered by their own beauty and flaunt it wherever she goes. #BeYou
