the simple & understated.
Nail art is becoming more and more popular every day. A manicure with one colour will ALWAYS be in style, but fortunately we have a ton more freedom to express creativity with nail art design. I wanted to show a few pictures for us folks who want to bridge the gap between classic and outrageous polish. A happy-medium in the nail art world can mean something as easy as a few contrasting colours, clean lines and simple shapes.
Just a thin outer edge really brings these two contrasting colours together to create high fashion nails.
Rather than the classic french manicure, why not try it with different colours and put the tip on the side? I really love this, plus anyone could pull it off.
Instead of having a busy polka-dotted nail, try a more subdued version like this one. Simply take a flat polish and pair with a glossy version in the same tone, and voila!
Colour-blocked nails have become wildly popular. To replicate a version similar to this one, just choose two very soft/pastel colours and pair them with one bold polish. That will give your nails that extra punch.
