What’s New In Nail Color For 2017?
If the recent red carpet season is any indication, this year’s style scene will be more of a range than a trend with styles ranging from boho naturals to classic feminine to downright edgy. So it’s not surprising that nail color, and nail art, trends should follow suit. Here are a few ideas to use as a launching point for your own personal style trend.
Starting on the neutrals end of the spectrum, we’re seeing added depth with color layering. Using single coats of related shades topped off with a matte finish coat, the look will be neutral, natural, and lived in. To switch it up just a bit, opt for a greige neutral atop almond-shaped nails. But if you want to make a statement, there’s no reason you can amp it up with a squared off mani topped with pure white.
Taking a half step away from neutral, there’s a lot of gray scale going on. Whether it’s a pastel gray with lavender undertones or a watercolor look with smoke colored tips fading to natural at the nail bed, this look manages to be both neutral and edgy at the same time. If you want to take it even further afield, use a nearly black base and top it with a sheer wash of metallic silver.
Metallics can work the entire room this year. Opt for a sheer sparkly line around your nail bed or make it moody with a silky pewter tone. Tap into the ombre look with a metallic pink that fades to deep gold at the nail bed, or a grunge look in silver that barely smears some sparkle back from your well-manicured tips.
On the edgy side, graphics will be everywhere this year. Make it playful with a different colored pastel shape on each nail or moody with dark classic colors overlaid in bold shapes. Try a reverse French manicure with a pop of color at the tip and a neutral nail bed, or make just one nail use the opposite combination of tip and bed colors.
