This season is filled with fabulous new trends. There are a few however, that really stand out in my mind as favorites of mine! I just about died watching Elie Saab’s gorgeous display of monochromatic hues make their way down the runway creating a rainbow effect. Valentino also featured a sequence of chic monochromatic pairings that screamed perfection. Another wonderful trend we are seeing everywhere is pops of color and color blocking. This is such a ‘feel good’ trend! Bright colors can just about brighten anyone’s day! I’m loving all the tangerine hues as well as greens and turquoise pairings.
If you know me, you know that I’m obsessed with nail polish! I have more than I can count but I can never seem to get enough. So every season, I think about the current fashion trends, and find ways to translate those trends into my beauty routine. Particularly my nails! For this manicure, I opted for one color, blue, and decided to illustrate two different trends using this one color. On one hand, I am wearing my interpretation of color blocking. I painted my nails in a pretty turquoise blue. For my ring finger nail I opted for a navy blue with a bit of shimmer. This not only illustrates color blocking but a huge trend happening in nails where one nail color differs from the rest.
For my other hand, I opted to show my interpretation of a monochromatic effect - Ombre. My main color was blue and each nail was polished in a different shade of the same base color. I actually LOVE this! I mean it’s genius! It makes perfect sense for a girl with a thousand polishes right? I’ll definitely get more wear out of my polish collection, that’s for sure! Overall, a great way to sport new trends, particularly those you may be hesitant to invest in at first, is with your nail polish. It’s inexpensive, and easily removable! So go ahead… be creative!
