Seasonal nail trends are pretty damn predictable: soft watercolors for spring, candy-hued brights from the summer, and moodier reds, blues, and grays for fall and winter. Then, there is this kind of unique period during the holidays where glitter and shimmer are all the rage. Thankfully, the tacky holiday manicure isn’t a thing anymore so there’s no falling victim to that atrocity. We’re all loving the glitter and shimmer trend! In fact, we opted for this nail trend so much so that we’re still rocking it well into 2018. The glitter and shimmer is fun, festive, but can also go subtle and low-key. So, it’s time to acquaint yourself with the glitter and shimmer this summer ladies. That’s not all though, there’s more: muted metallics, chromes and iridescents, ocean blues, and bare nails with black stripes. Below are the hottest nail trends straight off the runway:

  1. Let’s start and continue on with the subject of glitter and shimmer, ladies. The best way to really rock the trend is to get your nails on the Maybelline Color Show Nail Brocades Limited Edition Collection. The nail polishes are best described as duochrome glitter toppers, featuring small silver or gold particles that create a base for hexagonal pieces. The thick formula is jam-packed with glitter of various sizes, and the opacity is achieved after just two coats. The foil-like glitter polishes come in a mesmerizing array of colors that all mimic shiny, ornate brocade fabrics (hence the name). There are ten metallic hues in all, from the regal Gilded Rose to a festive red like Ruby Refined, and even an outer space like vibe with Black in Mirrors. The collection has received many rave reviews with the beauty and cosmetic world, and polish fanatics alike, so you can’t go wrong with picking a few, or even all then of them out 😉
  2. While warm and neutral tones generally ruled over the spring 2018 nail trends, a few nail artists bucked the trend to make blue a whole trend of its own. At the Fenty x Puma by Rihanna show, the model’s nails were painted an electric blue that had the perfect amount of energy for summer. At the Concept Korea show, short nails were painted an equally bright albeit lighter sky blue. The only muted version of the blue trend was at Emporio Armani show where a navy blue was used to paint the models’ nails. If you ladies are into the blue vibes, get yourself the Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in Ocean Blue, OPI Nail Lacquer New Orleans in Blue Shatter, or Sweet Touch Nail Polish in Poolside Blue or Mineral Blue.
  3. Nude and black is a nail combination that is soon becoming as ubiquitous as the French manicure. As part of the summer 2018 nail art trends, it is all about nude nails with thin black lines. As seen on runways, there were painted nails in a clean and crisp nude with an added dark stripe right along the bottom near the cuticle. Vertical as well as horizontal lines on minimalist nude nails were also seen. The most graphic take on this summer 2018 trend was with a thick stripe and a thin strip drawn diagonally along the tip of the accent nail. If you are looking to play around with the nail art, try Sweet Touch Nail Polish in Black Queen or OPI Nail Lacquer New Orleans in Black Shatter.

All of the trends are just a click away, with all of the nail polishes mentioned above available on the site. You ladies know we’ve got you covered for the fresh new summer season.
