Wedding Glam is back…which means more refined, lady-like nails in 2016. Toss aside the bright color, glitter, and graphics- the trends are signaling a more minimalist approach when it comes to decorating your digits. And the result is a fabulous polished effect…pun intended!
Filigree has always been a popular nail choice, but when overdone it can look plain cheesy! That’s why only featuring the filigree on three nails lets them stand out in a positive way. Also, using pearl accents instead of rhinestones adds some interest and dimension without crossing over into gaudy territory.
Reverse French manicures took hold in a big way in 2015, but the more modern take combines the reverse and half-moon manicures with a soft color makes a quirky, but subtle statement. Perfect for a bride who likes to buck tradition.
Let’s be real here—we are suckers for a little sparkle. The ombre is eye catching and modern, but it’s not so much that it’ll overwhelm your new wedding band!
Negative space nails were a big trend in 2015, and we think that’ll continue in the New Year, simply because they are so versatile. They can be tribal, fierce, and modern and can be tailored to suit any personal style.
For the true golden girl- striking gold stripes, punctuated with one ombre sparkle nail, is a perfect mash up of a couple 2016 nail trends. It’s a minimalist way to include metallic into your look, and they come out looking super polished and fierce.
Part of the reason the classic French manicure has fallen out of favor is because women are feeling it’s a little too harsh and artificial for their style. If you’re interested in a French mani, but want it to appear softer and subtler, this gentle ombre will have your nails looking both fresh and classic on your big day.
Want your nails to look like actual jewels? It can be done! Glass nails is an up-and-coming look that has everyone desperately trying to recreate the look at home and in salons. We think this look is best left up to the professionals, because when done right, it’s a total show stopper.
