NAIL IT – WINTER NAIL TRENDS 2016

Tuesday October 18 2016.

Truth be told I really do need to make more effort with my nails.  I’ve become super lazy and have been wearing the same colour for a few months.  I know, I know but it’s my current fave and seems to go with everything.  Anyways due to my lack of experimentation I’ve been researching new trends and sharing them with you.

GOLD LINES

Possibly the most bridal worthy of these Winter nail trends 2016 and actually not that complicated of a nail art trend.  It doesn’t matter where the line goes – horizontal, vertical, one, multiple just play to find your signature style.  Simple and very effective even if you only manage a couple of nails.

BLACK & WHITE

White nails, black tips.  J’adore.  It has been doing the rounds since last Winter but when something looks this good it just doesn’t date.  Monochrome will always be in fashion.

METALLIC OMBRE STYLING

The final of these Winter nail trends 2016 you’ll want to see is an ombre effect in marvellous metallics.  You all know how much I love mixed metallics.  Admittedly this one seems like it might be a little complicated but totally worth it.  Nails to talk about guaranteed.
