There's nothing that adds polish to an outfit like an immaculate manicure. Perfectly groomed talons are an absolute must for any discerning style servant, and with recent development in nail design, you can find any trend transformed into a miniature piece of art for your fingers. But what if you can't afford the weekly visit needed to keep your tips in shape? Well, take our lead and invest in these super cute, and super simple DIY manicure kits!
The nail wrap has become a whirlwind success. Nail Rock, Rimmel and even Chanel have invested in this contemporary nail trend. Every design you could possibly imagine has been remastered into an individual masterpiece, matched with a rainbow of shades to suit any ensemble in your wardrobe. Our advice is to embrace the Jubilee spirit and opt for a union jack pattern in good old red white and blue!
If you have more time on your hands and are lucky enough to possess a flare for design, then the nail art pen is for you! Topshop have launched a range of five colours in easy to use long grip pens. Pick a base colour, wait for it to dry, then let your imagination run wild! For a stronger splash of colour, we love the Models Own Wah Nails collaboration nail art pen. Combine pink, yellow and electric blue for a retro 80s vibe, or go monochrome with black and white for some stand out of the crowd chic.
The latest trend to sweep the fashion world is the bizarre yet beautiful caviar manicure by Ciate. First you coat your nails in the matching shade provided, then sprinkle on the cascade of iridescent beads to create a dazzling 3D effect. Choose from pearlescent white, jet black or multicolour, and find yourself the proud owner of the coolest nails on the beauty scene.
If your addiction to the beauty salon really can't be cured, then go for the latest in heat transfer nail technology. Minx Nails offer the wildest and most outrageous colour and design selection on the market, and have conveniently perfected the process to leave your nails completely crease and smudge free. With a celebrity following led by Rihanna, Katy Perry and Beyonce, who are we to argue?
