New year, new trends and if we learned anything for the past years, nail art is here to stay. Like makeup and hair, nail styles change all the time and many have tried to predict what nail trends are going to hit the beauty industry in 2016. For this year, it seems that minimalism is taking over.
Nude nails are in and a lot of twist on classic nails trend that we love. First up, the French manicure. With white-tipped and nude or pink overlay, French manicure is an everlasting nail trend. It’s effortless and looks great on everyone. This year, we expect to see a twist to this classic look; bold colours on the tip of the nails. Another rather interesting twist is the line effects on top of the cuticles of your fingernails. This means instead of having colours at the tip of the nails, you line around your cuticles with colours and paint the rest of your nails with creamy or nude colours. Nude nails are another classic nails look predicted to stay in 2016. Nude shades leave the hands looked clean and more sophisticated. Although it has been in trend for a while, there is no sign that it’s going out of style anytime soon.
Stripes are in. Whether it’s horizontal, vertical, or diagonal, they are all over the runways. Some appeared with silver stripes on their nails while the others appeared with one thick stripes or two thinner strips. Other than stripes, sticking embellishment on your nails is also another predicted trend of 2016. More and more people seem to add 3D embellishment, small stones, and crystals onto their polished nails. One of the most noticeable trends for the new year is the matching eyes and lips to nails feature. We see matching nails and eye makeup at the Monique Lhuillier fashion show with the bold French manicure. Celebrities also opted for this look on the red carpets, often matching their lip color with their nails. Other than bold colours, glitters are also everywhere. Many looks on the runway match their shimmering eye shadow with glittery nails. Naeem Khan added sparkles to nude or creamy nails to bring about a jewel-like look. From nude to bold colours, matching your makeup look to your nails, and plays on the classic nail trends, there is an awesome nail art trend for you to choose and try this year.
