Stiletto nails are a HAWT trend. These cat-like nails will be great for you if you want to do something drastic, or simply try something new. The shape along makes a statement, you have the option of taking it further with the color, print, or design you choose.
Trend #3: GRADIENT NAILS
Gradient nails remind me of this recent ombre hair trend, where colors fade from dark to light. Gradient nails are a unique style, as they can fade from dark to light or light to dark, with whatever colors that one chooses to use. This is a trend that I love, because it is really creative, and from what I hear, not hard to achieve.
Trend #4: COLOR BLOCK
Color blocking is a major trend right now, not just with nails, but with everything in fashion. With that being said, it was only a matter of time before the trend made its way into the nail industry. This style is really cute and perfect for the summer. Give it a try!
Trend #5: NEUTRALS
Neutrals are a classic. They are great all year round. Maybe the next time your unsure while sitting in the chair at the salon, opt for a neutral shade. Neutrals will never do you wrong.
