Nail art is becoming more and more extreme. Over the last several years, designs have gone from simple dots and lines to sequins, beads, and jewels. There has never been a better time to get creative with your manicure! Along with the influx of new and exciting ideas comes the surge of statement pieces. From the wardrobe to accessories, adding on an over the top piece can take any look from blah to bam. The same can be said for your nails. Statement nails are quickly becoming just as popular as a statement necklace or handbag.
So, what are statement nails? Any nail design that veers from tradition! That could mean a full set of brightly painted nails with one of two that stand out from the rest. With techniques like magnetic lines, caviar or velvet finishes, bow or flower shaped beads, and 3D texture, it isn't hard to create a statement nail or two these days. They are the perfect way to add a fun pop of colour or get a little trendy. Plus, bold nails are the perfect conversation starter. You'd be amazed at the number of comments and compliments you will receive on your creative nail art.
Now you know that statement nails are. So, it's time to ask yourself one important question: are you ready to make a statement? Then get ready to create statement nails of your very own! There are a few ways you can go about it. Try rooting through your nail polish collection for bold colours - and paint your pinkie fingers in an opposing shade for a fun contrast. Want something a little bolder? Add in some glitter or carefully sequin one or two fingers.
You may also want to pink up a nail kit from your local beauty store. Sephora has tons to choose from - including nail accessories, sequins, textured glitter, and more. Find one that makes you feel exciting. You can also search for inspiration on websites like Pinterest and bring in a photo or two into your local nail salon. See if they can turn your vision into a reality!
There is no doubt about it...statement nails are fun, exciting, and of course, fashionable. For nail art that stands out from the crowd, get creative and have fun with it. However you choose to amp up your nails this season, they are sure to make a statement.
