2014 Nail Trends

Hello beauties!

As promised, we're going right on with out little 2014-trend series today. If you like nail art and manicures, you're in the right place! We're going to have a look at the predicted nail trends for the new year. Let's get right into it.

Metallic shades are back in 2014, which is great, because I love this trend!! From molten golds to gunmetals and icy silvers, all of the shades in the metal family are in!

White nail polish is another huge predicted trend. Either wear virgin white nails, or pair it with pretty add ons (like rhinestones) and subtle nail art.

Bright colours like bubblegum pink, vibrant orange and turquoise is another trend for the year. Pastels will be big too.

Nail art with stripes is a returning trend. Vertical, horisontal or diagonal stripes will all feature this year. Wear the stripes over nude or coloured nails.

The pic on the left is a double trend alert! Holographic or foil nail art is predicted to be really big in 2014. So get out your old foil art kits and get cracking on your fingertips!!

 The moon manicure is back too and predicted to be bigger than ever! Opt for nudes and whites or greys, or go the more colourful route and use bright oranges, pinks or blues. You can also use black and other dark colours for this trend. Basically, everything goes! Read more about it here.

 Nail art is still considered a trend in 2014. You can do almost anything on your nails, from subtle to daring, and be fashionable! And 3D nail art will be big too.

 French manicures are in again, but with a twist. The traditional white tip has long since gone out of fashion, but you can still wear this old favourite if you love it!

Instead of the old white tip, go for coloured tips. Navy, black and charcoal tips paired with nude nails are major right now. You can also paint the nail a solid dark colour and paint the tip white.

Also, diagonal tips instead of the traditional straight across line is fresher and more on trend.
 As always, the traditional red nail is in. This is one of those things that will never really go out of fashion. So don't get rid of your favourite cherry or ruby shade!

And that wraps up the trend predictions for the year. I hope you found something in here to inspire your creativity! :) I'll see you again on Monday. Hope you have a great weekend!

Stay beautiful and be kind to animals,
