Hello dear twist. Readers!
I wanted to show you this summer’s nail polish trends – and at the bottom of this post an easy summer nailart design! Oh, and please don’t look at my cuticles – they’re a hot mess at the moment…
Let’s start with neon nailpolish – you won’t be able to avoid them this summer! Neon colors rock and love to be combined with grey, black, white or even matching neon clothes or accessoires (for those who are comfortable with it).
Where to get neon nail polish? For example – essie’s coming up with the “Poppy Razzi” Collection – four gorgeous neon nail polish! Essie polishes are 3-free.
Another trend you won’t be able to live without – pastel nails! I personally love pastels, they even work with strong colors in your outfit and they give a hint of elegance.
Again, Essie has a big selection:
From index to pinky: Bikini So Teeny, Mint Candy Apple, Lilacism and French Affair.
And these are just my favourites – or check out the Rock’n'Roll brand A Beautiful Life in the twist.shop that holds a gorgeous pastel mint blue called “Vette“. (note: Have you seen Anna rock this shade? It’s her newly announced color of summer of 2012!)
Last but not least: The coral trend! This means: Corals in any shade, whether it’s coral pink, coral orange or coral red – everything will make your nails look stunning and up to date!
I personally love coral-pink shades to death at the moment, there’s nothing to me I like to wear more. Coral nails go with every other color and style and your hands look elegant.
There are so many great shades you can stylishly rock this summer! Don’t wait, check them out and find your perfect coral polish for the summer! My favorite is Essie’s Cute As A Button.
Finally, I decided to to a very simple but gorgeous looking pastel nailart design for you:
All you need is 3 pastel polishes of your choice, a pin with a round pinhead and a pencil or toothpick.
First, apply two coats of the base color of your choice and let dry. Then place a glob of the polish you chose for the big dots on a piece of paper – dip the pinhead in it and do several dots on each nail.
I decided to do a pattern with three dots in the middle and two dots each side. When you’re finished with all your nails let them dry again.
In a last step, put the polish you chose for the tiny little dots in on a piece of paper, then dip the tip of a pencil or toothpick or dotting tool in the color and start placing a small dot in every big dot.
When you’re done wait about 5-10 min before applying the finishing top coat or you could probably smudge the design a bit.
TIPP: If you use the same polish for base color and the tiny dots – you’ll end up with a circle design instead of dots.
