This season, fashion bloggers and celebrities have gone mad for pretty, funky party nails! Here at Very HQ we love getting our nails done, either at the salon or at home, and there’s nothing more fun than experimenting with some cool new party nail looks. Have a look at our round-up of great new nail products below for some fresh ideas.
If you like your nails bright and colourful, then start with a vibrant base coat in a hot jewel shade; bang on trend for this season. The Barry M Nail Paint 312-Indigo is a lush amethyst colour that looks perfect on shorter nails, or try the OPI Texas Collection – Austin-tatious Turquoise for a slightly iridescent turquoise teal finish that looks gorgeous on longer nails. Matte finishes are also big news this season, and the Nails Inc Matte Collection – Gatwick Red works really well with the AW 2011 androgynous look: team with black skinny jeans and an oversized white tee for a classically cool style.
If you want to go for a more festive look this season, go for glitter with the Barry M Nail Paint – Red Glitter which can be worn alone with a couple of coats, or a single coat over another colour for a touch of sparkle. The Nails Inc Special Effects3D Glitter – Sloane Square is great for disco queens, as this thick black glitter creates a fantastically sparkly look that’s great for cocktail parties! For a touch of metallic shine that’s a great way to get into the modern metallics trend we love, try the Barry M Nail Paint – Silver: sophisticated yet super cool.
Fashionistas this season have also been going mad for nail polishes that give a nail art effect in one easy action, like the Barry M Nail Paint 311 Instant Nail Effect – Black Magic. Paint this amazing polish over a brightly coloured base coat and watch as it creates a crackle effect for a cool, punk look!
The latest innovative nail polish from Nails Inc is their Nails Inc A Unique Silver/Chrome Magnetic Special Effects Polish. Paint on a thin base coat, then add a thicker second coat when dry. Hold the lid of the polish (which contains a magnet) over the nail and – voila! Your nails will form an amazing shimmering magnetised pattern. You have to see it to believe it! We also love this polish in the purple version, Nails Inc A Unique Purple Magnetic Special Effects Polish.
For those of you who fancy trying your hand at something even more detailed, invest in the Rio Nail Art Pens – Metallic to create unique, shining designs on your fingertips just for party season.
Another one of the latest innovations for at-home nail art are nail wraps, which are easily applied much like a nail sticker, then trimmed to shape. Opt for a sophisticated night-time look with Rebel Nails Dark Purple Glitter for Fingers, or go super bling with Nails Inc Nail Wraps – Solid Gold. These hard-wearing wraps are also great for creating a funky pattern on your nails without all the fiddliness of nail art: try the Nails Inc Nail Wraps – Leopard Print Gold for a fun take on this season’s animal print trend, or the Rebel Nails Fabulous Designer Nails in Minutes! – Silver and White Swim Toes for an abstract print pedicure.
